Step into the botanically-inspired retreat, The Folly, nestled in the heart of the City of London. Their expansive all-day venue is the perfect place to grab breakfast on the way to the office, or enjoy an after-work drink and a delicious bite to eat. The Garden Lounge sets a tranquil scene with hanging chairs, dramatic trees and plant-pot lampshades. From the local and seasonal produce on the menu and in the deli (the ‘Potting Shed’) to the freshly cut flowers sold, The Folly is a celebration of all things natural.


For a more intimate experience, the rustic kitchen-style Chef’s Table is ideal for a party of up to 14 guests.


The modern European menu is filled with delights from Borough Market. Ideal for the City crowd, the choice of light bites, sharing boards, gourmet sandwiches and heartier mains and generous salad provides an array of choice throughout the day.


Especially impressive is the innovative cocktail menu that includes a selection of ‘skinny’ options (under 100 calories a pop). Forget about a dessert tray, here you can ask to see a selection of spirits on the cocktail tray- your personal bartender will mix up the perfect bespoke brew for you.

Lady Blonde's Highlights

The Folly has an ongoing pop-up element that changes according to seasonal and current trends and produce. From a hair and make-up boutique to a Pop champagne bar, this element of the venue promises to offer a constant delightful surprise.
