It was our first visit but definitely not our last. The duck is divine and the scallops cooked to perfection. Staff made our visit very welcoming. Can’t wait to go back. Loved it.

We had a lovely night in a very cozy and relaxed atmosphere at the folly. It was our first time firmly husbands 40th but we certainly will come back. The food was delicious and the service spot on.

The pub hosted us after my father's funeral. They were great, we were not rushed - which was perfect - had a delicious lunch and the staff were great! Barbara

Excellent lunch. The background music is the only thing that made atmosphere a trifle tricky. The service, was friendly not fussy ie perfect. The value is excellent. We had a nice lunch mixing up starters of scallops, beetroot salad, souffle and crispy paprika whitebait. We asked for some chips and veg to be added. Everything was lovely , except the whitebait. I think it should be tender but it was overcooked very crispy as in like crisps. Unfortunately no veg or chips appeared. However, we also forgot and it probably did our waistlines the world of good! Look forward to coming back.

I like arriving and being greeted so genuinely. I really like linen napkins and sparkling wine glasses. I especially like having grown ups to look after the table. I really like the choice of food, the preparation, the presentation and the service. The Folly Inn is definitely special, they have set a standard that others are going to find hard to match.

It was a lovely evening, all the staff were very attentive and it’s the best meal we have had in a while. We were disappointed a few months ago and thought the chef had changed, decided to give it another try and we are glad we did as we were very impressed. Well done Robert abd your team Superb

We often visit here on a Sunday and have never had a bad dinner , we especially like the pork and even on sundays that it’s not on menu , Robert will try to accommodate, as with a starter that we like . Service is always good and mick and his colleagues always friendly, we brought along mother and stepfather and they were equally impressed, we will be returning, keep up the good work 😊

Went for the set meal lunch menu. chose a main but because the service was slow, we ran out of time to have a desert but ordered some teas and the bill at the same time. So not only did the restaurant not offer to substitute a cup of peppermint tea (which probably costs them 10p) for the desert, but we had to end up standing at the bar so we could actually pay our bill. Wont come back

Once again an excellent Christmas Choice Menu. Soufle and Sea Bass for Mrs H and Tiger Prawn salad and Bourgignan for me plus Christmas Pud & Brandy sauce. Excellent value and service. As a "special" place to go out you really can't beat the consistency of "The Folly" - well done team!

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who had been before. We were looking for somewhere offering good value and the lunchtime set menu was perfect (although we were sorely tempted by the main menu too). The staff were delightful and knowledgeable about the food being served. We had gluten free and dairy free needs within the group. As the food is cooked fresh by a chef they know exactly what is in the food and they can change ingredients to suit dietary needs so they can eat the same food as everyone else at the table rather than from a separate menu. A problem that people with dietary needs will know all too well. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. Most of our group had a 4hr round trip just to come to this restaurant and we'd do it again!

My friend and I have been regularly using the Folly lunch for approx the last 18 months and our reason for doing so is simple: we are met with a courteous greeting and service followed by the serving of brilliant food. I live in Wiltshire, he in Cambridgeshire. The Folly is midway.

Lovely as always. Only slight grumble would be the long wait between starter and main. They were busy and we had a good time in between but we would have preferred our main a little earlier. Still fantastic food!!
