We were advised on arrival that no fish were caught the previous day and none were expected to be caught on our day. There were about 20 fishermen there and only one trout was caught all day.

Could do with some more tables and chairs or to stagger the breakfast. Also to not let so many anglers book on the same day as there are not enough platforms and areas to fish from. As two people trying to fish from the same platform does not work and could be quite dangerous.

I suspect that the fishery had not been stocked for some time, probably to counteract the cost of the Groupon offer. We were told that it was to be restocked the fry week in October dodo come back and there'll be plenty of fish

We had a good day out (with the exception of not catching). Great atmosphere and really comfortable and welcoming place. The only suggestion I have is that some of the reeds could be cleared to allow more bank fishing, it was quite windy on the day we came and that limited space a bit. Otherwise no complaints. Thanks

On arrival, the "club house" is as lovely on the outside as is shown in the Groupon picture, and though a beautiful building on the inside the decor is unfinished the flooring has not been laid and the pool table that was mentioned was covered up and not available for use! The tea and coffee that was "on tap" was nowhere to be seen, ie; there was nothing laid out for one to take at ones leisure as lead to believe nor were we offered tea or coffee at any given time that we re-entered the house! We were also given the remnents of orange juice with our breakfast as this had clearly not been prepared the day before and when paying for our fishing equipment I was told by the member of staff that that this was her wages for the day, a little too much information.On arrival the toilets had no loo roll as aparently there had been a party the night before and the lady there that day was left at late notice to tidy up! Another member of staff was present, she ignored myself and my partner when we greeted her and continued to sit around in a very unfriendly and unwelcoming manner. Overall the club house and staff are disorganised, a little unprofessional in their attitude, and are generally not business minded. However, my partner and I had a super day as a part of our holiday activities and I myself caught a trout that we ate that evening. We would never fish simply for sport and my partner especially will fish again for our supper.

Just a big thanks. Always fancied trying fly fishing and you gave us a great taster. Catching 2 fish helped of course!

I went to another trout lake much closer to me, and told of my zero return at Vicarage Spinney Farm, to see whether it was the wrong time of year or whether VSF was just not fishing well. He told me that they don't allow trout fishing during June, July, August, as oxygen levels are too low, and especially in this hot weather. He said dont expect to fish before October, or a change in the weather. This Groupon offer should not have been made, as the water was not fit for fishing.
