About The Folly
The Folly restaurant occupies a unique riverside position in the heart of Oxford. Our restaurant provides simply served, excellently cooked dishes crafted from the freshest seasonal ingredients.
The restaurant's terrace floats on the waters of the River Thames as she runs gently under Folly Bridge. Inside we give a warm welcome throughout the year and offer relaxed drinks and dining from Sunday lunch to Saturday cocktails and everything in between.
Afternoon Tea is served weekends only from 12.00 - 16.30
Fabulous food, lovely environment, and very helpful staff!
Had a lovely experience here. The staff were very attentive and nice. The food was amazing! Lovely location on the river and reasonably priced for the standard of food. Would definitely come again!
Visited the folly as a present to us .Was pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent and the staff friendly and welcoming .will definately be going back
My friend and I spent a few very enjoyable hours, eating a yummy afternoon tea. The staff are friendly, polite and professional. And setting is very relaxing - thank you The Folly!
We had a fantastic experience with you. The food was divine and thd location was fabulous. Would definitely come again.
Quality and innovative
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.
It was a great place to celebrate with my family, the food was excellent.
One of the best meals I can ever remember eating. From start to finish it was just a joy!
Amazing service, great location. Could use a a non mushroom veggie dish. thanks!
I must say we had a great evening. Food was excellent and atmosphere was warm. Staff were also very attentive.
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 had afternoon tea which was lovely and spent a very pleasant afternoon overlooking the river it was very relaxing.
Lovely afternoon tea for my mum's bday with fab food and friendly service
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!
Everything was outstanding!
Lovely setting by the river and excellent food. We went on Sunday and the service was quite slow bit friendly.
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!
Nice afternoon tea
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.
Loved it! Completely amazing and a fantastic venue! Will be back!
Food and service were good.
