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
Lovely friendly relaxed restaurant. Very good food. Staff very attentive. Fabulous riverside location. Highly recommend.
We had a party of 19 for a pre-wedding meal. The only disappointment was that the manager/owner didn't come and say hello to us, I thought that might have been a nice touch, especially as we had had many email correspondences leading up to the party. But apart from that, the food and the on-the-night service was superb, so thank you.
Beautiful setting, lovely food, fabulous service and great atmosphere. What more could you want!
Lovely afternoon tea, in a great location. Perfect food choices and great customer service, would definitely recommend.
Went on the 6pm boat trip which was very tranquil and relaxing. Returned to the restaurant and had a lovely meal. The staff were all very pleasant and the service was excellent, we will return and do this again. Lovely experience, thanks to all the staff and chef.
Very good service and excellent food, especially the fish of the day (Sea Bream).
Very prompt and efficient friendly service
Lovely day with amazing views of the river. Service was fast and food was amazing. Our waitress Steph was very helpful and attentive to make sure our experience was perfect. Even giving advice on which cocktails we would enjoy. Lovely to see staff know thier own menus
Food was great. A very nice restaurant and thanks for organising a taxi. We had a great evening.
The food was excellent and the service was friendly and prompt.
Lovely historic place for a non hurried lunch in a great setting. The staff are helpful, friendly and attentive. The food has some nice differences from the norm, very enjoyable! Would go again if ever in Oxford.

Fabulous quality food lovely location overlooking the river friendly staff lovely atmosphere
Excellent food and service, and very reasonably priced.
Had an afternoon tea as a birthday present. The staff were very friendly, very attentive and helpful. The setting is lovely by the river and the "tea" was delightful. Lovely sandwiches, fresh scone and little treats - couldn't fault it.
Warm welcome on arrival, barman went out of his way to custom a cocktail for me (as designated driver), waitress very attentive, food was amazing, lovely table looking out onto the river, I recommend the espresso martini to add the perfect finish to the meal. Looking fir an excuse to come back again very soon :)
Highly recommend. Third visit and will definitely return
Lovely food but quite small portions. Amazing service.

Lovely place and staff. Had an afternoon tea there, food was very delicious. Would definitely visit again!
Enjoyed a couple of hours drinking cocktails and afternoon tea (amazing gluten free scones and sandwiches) then had a relaxing short cruise and a very enjoyable meal. Will definitely be back.
