About Crocker's Folly
The reopening of Crocker’s Folly has given London the chance to reacquaint itself with one of its most glorious edifices. A beautiful Grade II* listed former Victorian gin palace, complete with 50 kinds of marble, Romanesque columns, cut glass chandeliers and carved mahogany. Sympathetically and painstakingly restored, Crocker’s Folly has been reinvented by its owners, the renowned Maroush Group, as a stylish restaurant and bar serving traditional Lebanese food – complemented by a selection of wine and signature cocktails.
The food was decent but the service was quite bad, very long waits to get anyone's attention.
Delicious Lebanese food; we sat outside and were comfortable under umbrellas and warmed by heaters. Great service. Good value for money - we were a group of 6 sharing mezzes.
Can’t comment on atmosphere, not their fault we were outside in a squalling gale! Waitress was very accommodating and did her best to keep us dry and warm. The food was good, although a few items were missing from the menu and when I asked for something to be left off a plate it couldn’t be done, still not sure why. Only one dessert available. Main gripe was that it’s supposed to belong to the Restaurant Club, who have confirmed it hasn’t left, but they didn’t accept my card. I would go back, but only to sit inside or if it was a very warm sunny day.
Waited 45 mins for someone to take our orders or even bring a menu, and I had to go inside and ask for one. Then no one came to take our orders for another 20minutes and we had to leave as we were cold and hungry.
Service was haphazard and pretty slow and there was no atmosphere. All the customers were shivering despite best efforts with heaters and blankets as the outside area is out of the sun in the evenings. The menus were tatty, so best not to think about if they were sanitised or not. The food was tasty and the staff were polite and genuine. I would probably return to the restaurant inside, but this experience was just that we were sat outside an estate pub where can customers smoke and swear loudly. Glad we didn't have children with us.
The reservation, although confirmed online never made it into the restaurants system (out was ignored). Had to wait over 1h. Blankets although promised never arrived. Already vacated tables were not cleared So that after >1h we left. Ordered their food online. Which was great. 1 star reduction for atmosphere bc the heaters (which we huddled around while paying) are not really heating but they are standing everywhere. Also, tons of Deliveroo drivers who argue loudly with the restaurant staff.
We had a wonderful evening. Fiod and service was amazing and the portions were very generous. Thanks
Very nice time , only negative was being phoned after we had left to say we hadn’t paid the bill, which we had.
Delicioius Lebanese dishes with great hospitality.
The manager has a very brusque and fairly rude manner
Friendly staff, amazing food.
We were told there would be heaters, but there was none for our table unfortunately. This should have been made clearer at the time of booking
A bit chaotic and disorganised but once our table was sorted out, food ordered and had finally arrived - it was good. Eating outdoors was not particularly comfortable and heating not efficient.
such a lovely place - the staff are some of the friendliest i’ve ever come across.
Waitress serving us was absolutely excellent. She advised us on what to order and was very honest and amusing. She saved us from ordering something we wouldn’t like and was able to recommend something else instead which we liked a lot. She also had some very funny jokes too. Please give her my kind regards.
Delicious food and lovely atmosphere will be coming back. Great for a couple or a bigger group of friends, we had a table of 6 outdoors which was covered with heaters! Perfect since we couldn’t sit inside due to covid restrictions!
Great food and good service in an amazing setting. Felt safe as COVID precautions are in place and adhered to.
Great venue, amazing food and service, we will be coming back in the new year!
Lovely food and great service! Thank you so much
Lovely food, at lunchtime, very few other customers, during covid times. Very distorted background music which they politely agreed to turn off. But seriously guys, fix your sound system or don't even think of using it. It would have ruined our lunch if they hadn't turned it off. But like I said, they did, and service was excellent and I will go again, all the way from South London!
Great service great food amazing venue
As ever first class food - thank you! The current times do mean some issues with the atmosphere BUT we had a great lunch and will be back again.
A beautiful spot with great food and service! :)
