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.
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.
This is a very special dining experience for fine food, professional service, courteous people in an elegant setting. Ideal for a quiet dinner for two or a celebration for family and friends. My wife and I have eaten there twice and will undoubtedly make many more visit.
Nice place, nice food BUT ridiculously overpriced- will not return
The bar staff were very welcoming and friendly on arrival. Although the restaurant was a little quiet there was a good atmosphere. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. A lovely evening.
I booked CF primarily to experience the Victorian decor, which is what the place is famous for. The Lebanese food was tasty but expensive. I did not like the loud muzak, especially as the venue is full of hard surfaces, and so got very noisy. What mainly let it down was the service which was inattentive and slow - we had to ask the waiter twice to clear our plates. However, we would probably go again to CF for the food and the decor. I think it would be good to have somewhere - in the menu or elsewhere - a short history of the place. I would be happy to write this for you.
nothing to add
