Thank you for your kind review. With some sunny days ahead (hopefully!) our venue comes into its own, lots of ducklings/goslings and soon some cygnets too to be seen. Hope you will return soon.

We met up with friends to have some lunch here at the Hawkhurst Fish Farm, a very pleasant location beside lake. We had something off the Specials board, very nice food, good service.

Hire of 2 rods, a net, 2 kids fishing and 2 spectators came to £23!! So cheap for a great day of fun. Bailiffs are super helpful. Have a picnic whilst fishing. All in all, a fantastic value day out.
