My son's wedding
Venue Service

By Sharon Hawkins, on 09 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Sep 2019

Had a fantastic day for my son's wedding. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was amazing, and the food arrived at the table altogether and hot and presented perfectly! We all had an amazing time at Jimmy's Farm, and would recommend having your special day here! Thank you to all the staff! Well done!

An incredible wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Sarah and Rohan, on 11 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

Put simply, we could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. We loved the whole process from the beginning, when we first visited the farm and learned about the amazing animal rescue work they do, to the end, having a good chuckle with Head Chef Andrew about how many potatoes could be eaten by one person. On the day itself, we were lucky to have bright sunshine but Jimmy’s came up trumps with everything else to make the day one to remember: a beautiful marquee with scenic backdrop, a super fun farm experience for all our guests, incredible food in the atmospheric barn, seamless organisation and superb staff who worked brilliantly throughout what was a very long day. And last but not least the pleasure of working with Natalie, fun and resourceful, a safe pair of hands with tonnes of brilliant ideas. Jimmy’s is a beautiful, rustic, charming and unique venue made exceptional by the friendliness of everyone who works there.

Our relaxed family bbq and after party!
Venue Service

By Cori and Georgie Parrott, on 14 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019

We decided on a big family affair at Jimmy’s after our intimate ceremony and wedding breakfast in Bury St Edmunds. We wanted to invite our wider families along earlier in the day than most evening offered and we were able to have a cocktail hour and BBQ starting at 6pm before an amazing party at the farm. The farm also offered a more relaxed/ less traditional vibe for our celebrations. As foodies, farm to fork is something we are passionate about so that was another box thatJimmys Farm ticked. The farm restaurant layout also attracted us, with the bar, and seating areas/alcoves and dancefloor on different levels but still open plan so that everybody could enjoy the party going on the dancefloor even if they weren’t dancing! That and the access to the terrace and gorgeous views outdoors across the fields. Honestly the entire staff were so accommodating and professional on the day, Natalie in the build up was a dream, she listened to exactly what we were all about and made it all happen seamlessly! BBQ was commented on by everyone as was so delicious! Thanks so much to everyone at the farm, I can’t recommend the team and venue highly enough! :)

Great venue, amazing food

Wonderful November Wedding
Venue Service

By Janine & Liam de la Bedoyere, on 23 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 24 Nov 2018

We held our wedding at Jimmy's Farm in November 2018 and it was absolutely perfect for the cosy autumn/winter feel we wanted for our big day. Both the ceremony and reception rooms looked wonderfully rustic and magical with lots of fairy lights, hay bales and wood beams. The food was exceptional (as it always is at Jimmy's Farm!) and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Overall we were both extremely happy with how the day went and we love the fact that we got married somewhere that we can go back and visit again and again.

Daughters Wedding
Venue Service

By Abby, on 18 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

We held our daughters wedding here, it was the most perfect day. Romantic, relaxed and truly special. The staff were faultless, the food impeccable and the atmosphere was magical.

Beautiful Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Alistair McMillan, on 18 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Jul 2015

My wife and I had our Wedding Reception here in 2015 and we had a truly incredible day. The setting was breathtaking, the service was excellent and our guests are STILL talking about the food we had! Definitely a memorable day!
