The Folly

Our derelict chic hideaway tucked in the garden

JKE 8242 Folly

Rustic Kitchen Garden Dining

The Folly is our hideaway tucked away deep in the gardens, created with drop-in drinking and dining in mind. It has stripped back walls, floor to ceiling windows, is full of reclaimed furniture and materials and has a flagstone terrace with views that are hard to beat! We have slightly re-shuffled the layout for those who are regular visitors of The Folly, with smaller tables allowing for better spacing.

With the Kitchen Garden just there, you can eat what you can see; open all day with food service times from 12 - 3.30pm and 6 - 8.30pm. Our Folly menu serves wood-fired and daily harvest dishes alongside English fizz and wine, local ales and cocktails as well as home-brewed kombucha and fresh juices.

The Folly is open come rain or shine, and there is a log burning stove for those chillier days. Your four-legged friends are welcome to join us in The Folly, however not the main house.

Open Daily for Lunch and Dinner

As always, seating will be on a first-come first-served basis. Physical distancing will be strictly observed so numbers will be limited.
