We loved the atmosphere and the food. The service was very good and not invasive but we waited for a long time to be served. We were also asked to pay a deposit in advance that was initially not deducted from the final bill, which was a nuisance since we paid separately.

Fabulous location and food! Service was faultless. Loved the dessert cocktails, great alternative to an actual dessert which also looked lovely.

We had a very enjoyable evening and a good meal. We felt very welcome and enjoyed the situation of The Folly, overlooking the River. We will always have good memories of our evening there.

We attended for a birthday gift of afternoon tea. A generous glass of Prosecco. Friendly service. We would have welcomed 2 teabags in the pot of tea for two and a pot of boiling water so that we could have had more than two cups of tea each. A copious tea. Scones were rather hard and stodgy but the sandwiches were fresh and tasty.

I love the Folly - great atmosphere, good food, brilliant location - but the service was so slow that it spoiled our celebratory dinner. Those with trains to catch back to London were particularly put out - and there was no time to have pudding or coffee. Such a shame, because everything else is great!

An absolutely fantastic experience with the 'Cruise and Dine'!! This was booked to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Fabulous food, great wine - and the service was 2nd to none! Would definitely recommend The Folly - 1st Class!

We booked the Folly for our annual company get together and had a lovely boat ride followed by a delicious 3 course meal at the Folly. I would highly recommend the Folly for corporate event the team are very organised and whole experience and process was really easy and stress free.

Beautiful atmosphere and great service. A little confusion over too many servers and providing drinks and menus twice. Food good. A la carte dining experience with great view.
