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.
It was very cold and draughty in the dining room. Our food took 45 minutes to arrive. Too long. Our waiter was charming and very kind. I had not been to the restaurant for a long time and found the chicken livers not as tasty as before, and rather watery. The rest of our food was excellent.
Great food and atmosphere. Our waitress was very polite and helpful
Thank you for the great evening. Food and service were excellent. Definitely coming back.
We really enjoyed our dinner. Food was fab, service very attentive. Such a beautiful restaurant.
The food and service were excellent - a little on the pricey side but not exhorbitant and well worth it. Our only disappointment (hence 4 stars instead of 5) was that the juices described on the menu as 'freshly pressed' I believe, turned out to be produced at the restaurant chain's warehouse, which isn't quite the same, and all had sugar added. Also, I personally prefer waiting staff not to continually keep topping up our glasses, especially as they were trying to add tap water to my sparkling mineral water! I'm quite capable of topping up my own glass when I need to and apart from that find the slight interruption irritating. Apart from that, the staff were attentive without being intrusive, even moving us to another table as it was rather noisy since there was a large party near us - it was after all a Saturday evening - and we all enjoyed our meal.
Very nice atmosphere, lovely staff and excellent food!
Really good food in beautiful surroundings.
Great food and wine in a fascinating building with great service too. Quite quiet on the bank holiday Monday lunch, but that did not spoil the experience.
The place was empty for lunch. We requested a nice table. We given a random long table by the door. We asked for it to be changed. Considering it was totally empty they could have seated us at a better place. Staff was not interested. Kept saying section closed. We were there for a celebration. NEVER AGAIN. No parking. A freak to get there. Then this problem.
Thanks, beautiful food.
Very quiet when we were there. Service a little too pushy but food and Lebanese wine were good so definitely going again.
Lovely meal, great service, had a really enjoyable evening - will definitely return, many thanks!
Phenomenal food and service absolutely brilliant x
Food was very fresh tasting and nice serving sizes.
Food was excellent, great setting.
Great food and super nice service. Will return!
We were expecting a gastro pub and were delighted to discover a beautiful restaurant. The staff were delightful and helpful too. The meze starters were delicious and authentic but we were disappointed with the mixed grill main course. Not very much meat, just a skewer of minced lamb, one skewer of chicken and 2 tiny lamb chops and it came with no salad or rice - both had to be added as side dishes. Will certainly return and make different main course choice
Would be nice if the lighting in dining area was dimmed a bit more at nights.
Amazing, fresh and tasty food!Highly recommended for private and business dinners
The whole impression is of a place that has lost its will (if it ever had it) to be anything more than adequate.
Amazing building, excellent food and service. Inappropriate music choice and was so empty that it felt deserted
Lovely setting very friendly team. Have been twice. Food excellent. Going again soon
This was our first visit and we would definitely return
I requested a table outside and upon arrival was told it is fully booked which started my experience poorly
Simply first class meals, top quality in a superior venue.
