Very exciting food with flavours and textures I would have never put together myself. Loved the sheep's yogurt sorbet with frozen spruce and aerated white chocolate!

Best dinner I have ever eaten! Loved it. I am a keen cook and eat out a lot and often one wishes one had stayed at home. This made the trip out worth it. Marvellous!

Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my first dining experience at Folium though it was a little quiet - maybe influenced by it being lunchtime on the Saturday before Christmas. The quality of the food and service was excellent and the fixed price menu was excellent value. Will definitely be returning and have no hesitation in recommending.

Incredible food, we enjoyed every bit of it. It was imaginative and fresh. We had high hopes for Folium and it didn't disappoint. Service was wonderful, warm and helpful - even left a birthday card for my friend. Thank you Folium, hope to see you again!

A fabulous restaurant to celebrate my birthday. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Staff were knowledgeable. The menu was interesting and delicious. The chef was able to adapt to my particular dietary requirements without compromising the dishes. We will certainly be visiting again.

5 course tasting menu was exceptional. We had real difficulty deciding which was our favourite & all courses were memorable. We will definitely be returning.

What a fabulous lunch. We arrived late on a pouring wet Thursday lunchtime. Folium staff were friendly and accommodating. As for the food, superb value - we had the set menu. Mouthwatering amuse bouche tartlet of duck liver and Cornish crab. Fresh as the sea mackerel tartare to start, followed by unctuous porkbelly and a sweet and crunchy chocolate with cobnut crumb. Star on the plate was a bonbon filled with duck on a black garlic paste. Loved the minimalist Scandi influence in the food and décor. Knowledgeable, unfussy staff completed a fantastic lunch experience. Thank you Folium.
