You need shallow 'beaches' sloping down into the water rather than shallow areas

 I know this is a bit bigger than you had in mind, but it's actually a very small pond. 

is there such thing as a cherry tomatoe BUSH?

I think the friend misunderstood and it was a 'bush' tomato - i.e. a determinate variety and you don't take out the side shoots.

Hi,  I'm not sure how successful a wildlife pond it could be if it stood 2ft tall - how would frogs, newts etc get into it and what about the essential shallow areas?

There's some info on this earlier thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/wildlife-gardening/wildlife-ponds/2103.html 

But get the right balance of plants and you don't need filters.

Providing you've got sufficient root depth, the only thing to worry about that I know of is lime content which would preclude you growing lime-hating plants.

You have a drainage problem that needs to be investigated and resolved.  

We'll need more details and photographs.

I think you know the problem - the one consistent fact you've repeated in your post above is that you've not selected a variety developed for flavour.
