We went on a Sunday and it was very quiet. The starter was lovely but the pea risotto was dense and bland. However, the dessert was lovely and the lady who served us was great and extremely friendly. I think we should visit mid week.

Quality food and service, such a pleasant way to spend Sunday lunch, will recommend to all my clients as this area is lacking such tasteful food and ambiance, will be back!

It would be great if card payments prompted a tip, I didn't notice until I realised I didn't have cash on me, so was unable to leave a tip : ( I have already recommended The Folly to two friends I saw later on Sat after I'd had lunch there - all round lovely experience : )

Unpretentious, excellent food, clearly prepared by someone that understands food. Everyone is efficient yet helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxing and the chairs are comfortable, with the tables sensibly spaced. We love it!

Excellent meal on the Sunday before Christmas. This is an annual outing given to me by relatives of my late husband, they enjoy it as much as I do. Christmas lunch we should have been a family party of five. Unfortunately my daughter-in-law was very poorly and their daughter stayed home to look after Mum so, sadly, only three of us. Robert and team really went the extra mile, a vegan meal specially prepared for my granddaughter was boxed up for my son to take back to her plus a main meal for the invalid. Granddaughter reported that the vegan meal,starter, main and dessert, was delicious and very much appreciated. Our Christmas lunch was also delicious, a varied choice throughout the menu and large, tasty portions. We were greeted with a glass of wine, proper fancy hats, mine was a halo (undeserved but causing much mirth to attendant family), lovely crackers with worth while contents. Yes, The Folly certainly went the extra mile that day, for my party particularly but also in presentation and food. Thank you to Robert and team, well done.

Thank you again. The folly is a fantastic restaurant. The food is wonderful. Love going there it's fine dining. The black pudding hash is so tasty. The duck was perfectly cooked. I am always welcomed warmly by the owners and staff. Will be back soon. Always a enjoyable time.

Incredible food in friendly, unpretentious surroundings full of character. Served by staff who are attentive without being intrusive and do everything they can to make it an ‘experience’, not just somewhere to eat.
