My first visit to the Folly for a set price lunch. The food was delicious and excellent value for money. My only criticism was coffee related. I had a cappuccino which was mostly just froth. I will certainly return.

Two of our party ordered Surf and Turf, both diners were disappointed when the dish arrived (5 prawns atop a steak (they were not convinced it was a fillet). The lamb dinner, ordered opinion - dry and overcooked. A bit disappointing as it was a 40th birthday celebration for our eldest son.

This is the 5th time we have dined here and the friends with us are as impressed as we were on our first visit. Just a nice, convivial , unpretentious, and honest eating place.

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.

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
