Delicious food, good choice. Felt very safe with all the necessary COVID requirements in place, but to the slight detriment to the atmosphere - hence only 3 stars for that. Thoroughly recommend!

The Folly have done everything they can to make guests feel safe in their restaurant and the experience we had made us feel welcome and yet secure socially distanced from other guests. It is clear Robert and his team have put a great deal of thought and planning into making the very best of these difficult times. Our go to restaurant remains a favourite and we will return in the, hopefully, not too distant future.

We nervously ventured out to the Folly for our first meal out since lock down. We didn't need to worry. Robert and his team have gone to great lengths to keep customers safe. We had a very relaxed meal. We both had the roast pork and it was excellent. We can highly recommend the Folly for the quality of its food and service. John & Olivia

Excellent food matched by equally good service. I shall return as soon as possible. I have visited The Folly on many occassions and never been disappointed.

One could say so much about The Folly. I have dined, and occasionally lunched there, a good many times. It is possibly fortunate that I have a long drive to reach The Folly, else we might be there every week. Or every day, if I could ... the food is sublime ... consistently so. If for no other reason than that the Black Pudding Hash starter is so incredible ... unctuous is the word, I think ... I have to keep visiting. One day, I may summon the courage to have two of those and a salad as the main course. Everything on the menu is beautiful. Service is impeccable, even when they are constrained by the Horrid Virus precautions, which they do so very, very well. At all times, the friendliest of staff. Discovering the the Folly was for us a gift from Providence. If you haven't eaten there, do so. Soon. You will not regret it.

First meal out since ‘you know what’ and a great pleasure to return to The Folly. Food and drink was to the usual high standard, as was the service (this in spite of the requirements of the Covid protocols). It was a little cool in the gazebo but we were a late booking and it did not detract from a very good meal.

Thank you for a wonderful meal. If we were to complain it was that the menu choices were such that we felt like saying "one of everything, please". Such good choices and so well prepared, presented and served. As Arnie would say "we'll be back!" - later this month, actually.

The folly did everything they could to make sure everyone was safe. There was reduced seating, dividers between tables, staff were wearing visors and a one way system. With regards to the service, we were told it might take longer to get the food out, due to reduced staff, however the food came out at a decent time. The staff were all really friendly and helpful, and the food itself was Amazingly tasty. We were so happy to have dined here, and will definitely be coming back again in the future. Thank you to all the Folly staff. 😊

Great effort post lockdown. Atmosphere did suffer but made up for it with quality of food and ale.

The food was lovely, really nicely presented, beautifully cooked and tasted as good as it looked. The staff and management at The Folly have clearly gone to great lengths to make sure the venue is COVID secure and we were very happy with the way service was conducted. It is, of course, somewhat of an odd situation for everyone, but even given the current situation it was lovely dining experience and we would definitely come again. Thank you.

Food was delicious & atmosphere would have been a 5 in past times. However of necessity all ‘dressings’ have had to be removed leaving a somewhat stark area. The staff worked very hard to be as helpful as possible & make our visit as pleasant as possible. They deserve to be supported.

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.
