The service was good, very friendly staff, coffee good. That's about where it ended. The waffles tasted "strange", the toasted sandwiches very dry. Should have butter on both sides of the bread, not even enough butter on one slice. The cheese used on the toasted sandwiches also not nice, probably cheap processed slices. Scones were good but so big. Surely one scone could be sold for $4.50 instead of being forced to but 2 scones for $9 and far too much for one person. If you want to share the scones you need to buy extra jam and cream. Rather a disappointing experience.

I have been to sunny ridge on many occasions when it wasn't a public holiday and loved it. Made a mistake of going during peak period. Long queues to order food, got to front of queue and pies/sausage rolls had run out, this was just after midday. While in queue we had used website to determine order only to find the website menu differed from the menu onsite. Then struggled to get seating next to a dog that barked the entire time. Overall suggest visiting on a weekdays during non holiday seasons

Very expensive visit. Only our kids wanted to pick strawberries but we had to pay for a family just so us adults could watch. No seats provided once you walk into the picking area meaning people with limited mobility just have to stand and wstch. Considering our kids had to pick their own strawberries it was a decent experience but we won’t return.

Hi Grayburger, Thanks kindly for taking the time to share your experience. Unfortunately, we aren't able to have chairs throughout our picking fields as this would limit our own ability to access plants. However, we take this feedback on board and will keep this in mind.

Great morning spent with 40 students picking strawberries and eating strawberry ice cream! Well set up and plenty of strawberries that were ready for picking....absolutely delicious! Walk ways can be muddy so closed shoes help!

Gift shop was reasonably priced and there is a cafe there too- I didn't eat there but food looked good.

Great place to take the kids, let them pick their own strawberries. Always plenty to pick from and are delicious.

After many previous visits some time ago, we were so disappointed in what we found. The cafe was staffed by a non-too-aware cashier who didn't know what we were talking about - duh! We wanted Devonshire Tea but apparently, that is no longer a "bundle" so ordered it individually after another staff member came to the rescue. The scones were hot enough and large but tasteless, a bit like eating warm paper: the jam runny and no substance and the cream - yuck! The coffee was hot but not large as I ordered. Frankly, it is a disgrace, and to encourage tourists they need to get their act together and sharpen up the staff, both mentally and visually - they looked as if they had just come out of the fields.
However, the retail staff in the shop were more professional and well dressed and the strawberries I bought were delicious - thank goodness!

Thank you for your feedback and I am disappointed to hear that you had such a varied experience in our retail and cafe spaces. Consistency in both areas is really importance to us so I will be sure to pass this on to the team for review and further training. Glad to hear you enjoyed our delicious strawberries!

Arrived at 10am (opens at 9am) and was told the field was "picked out" even though the website had stated it was open for you pick, I checked before we left home! It hasn't been open for you pick for weeks from what I can tell now from the social media page and poor reviews. Advertising is misleading. The shop had minimal stock of everything compared to other times I've visited over the years I would not recommend. I think it would be better for them to just advertise that you pick is closed due to a bad season of fruit rather than keep telling people to go there and its closed. Luckily we did not travel a very long way.

I am sorry that you could not experience u-pick on your visit. Unfortunately over our peak month (December into January) we experienced a run of cold days and heavy rain and therefore fruit availability was really limited. Growing conditions are best when the weather is consistent and warmer, resulting in more closed days than what we had hoped. We know so many visitors love to come and pick strawberries over summer so we were disappointed by the weather leading up to peak. On a more positive note, we have been open for the last month every day so if you visit again I am sure you will have a great day out.

My second visit to sunny ridge was even worse than the last time
In short the choice is ham and cheese toastie for lunch and nothing else despite having GFO not forthcoming
INEXPERIENCED STAFF
TERRIBLE TOILETS
NO DISABLED TOILETS
If you want icecream and strawberries OK do not expect anything else

Pathetic rude service
There was a huge sign at the front saying U-Pick head to the gazebo...so I did
As we went past the gate a young blonde girl approx 15ish came yelling out the door and rudely yelled your not allowed out here, there is no self picking today!!!!
I explained that there was a sign at the front saying to you to the gazebo to which replied it’s been covered.
As I left without spending a cent as I refuse to donate my money to such rude people I noticed the wind was raising the closed sign which was stuck to the sign... Not my fault right!!!!!
How does such a young person become so rude and hostile. Disgusting behaviour.
As I refused to buy anything we left and found another great U-pick Rocky Creek Farm Gate. 200% service, they walked every customer to the picking area. Go there and support these guys instead

Pathetic , disgusting dry food. This place should be shut down. A total embarrassment for Victoria’s tourism.

Hi there, would you please email me with further information regarding the food you ordered? As you would be aware December and January are our busiest months with Sunny Ridge being such a popular tourism spot for holiday makers, and if our food consistency has slipped during this time it would be great to hear more about it from you, so we can ensure this is improved in the future. It was a difficult time for us to get back up and running due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help ensure a safe environment for all where our staff could manage the busy period we did limit our café options, I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your food. The email is: info@sunnyridge.com.au Thank you
