Enjoyed brunch here twice during a long weekend in London. Lots of options on the menu, and everything we ordered was delicious. Very attentive service. The staff were also accommodating of our toddler, and there were plenty of things for her to eat too. A...More

Went for a few drinks with a friend and the service was slow. I also found the door staff to be incredibly dismissive and rude. Not sure I will be making a trip back here anytime soon!

I come here regularly with friends and colleagues and always get the seared tuna and a cocktail. The service is fast and the food is always nice. Amongst the city this place is truly a gem!

We were walking through London one Sunday, trying to find somewhere that served brunch - we didn't fancy a Pret a Manger or Nero sandwich - and came across The Folly. We're so glad we did. The first thing that struck us was how fantastic...More

Found in the financial district in the city (where pubs are hard to find). Spacious, well decorated, a great place to have a conversation without yelling over music. Good selection of wines, beer and mixed drinks.

My friend and I recently moved to the City, just 50m from the Folly, and decided to check out our “neighborhood restaurant”. The restaurant definitely looks very cool and rustic (we loved the interior) – but that’s where the praise ends. Service was unbearably slow...More

We had dinner here and we thought the food was very tasty. The home made lemonades are very nice. The waiter, a guy who came from Napoli, was very friendly and pleasant to talk with. For us this was a very pleasant dinner.
