Business overview

Delightful 17th Century thatched restaurant opposite Towcester Racecourse. Ample parking and lovely gardens for al fresco dining.

The Folly is situated in a beautiful location surrounded by rolling countryside on the A5 opposite Towcester racecourse. The original building dates back to the mid 1700's and is the quintessential thatched English inn, full of character and understated style.

The Folly is a destination restaurant for those looking for exceptionally good and innovative cuisine. Head chef David Horak sources local ingredients where possible and uses them in imaginative dishes based on great British classics with a contemporary twist. All food is cooked to order from fresh ingredients in our own kitchens.

To the rear of the building the garden offers a secluded and safe area away from the main road. An ideal space for families and those with their four legged companions! On fine days al fresco dining is available here.

Easy to find, ample car parking for up to thirty vehicles and easy access makes The Folly Inn is an ideal place to meet up and dine with friends, family and colleagues.

From reserving the whole restaurant with Robert, who made everything so effortlessly easy, the wonderful food and amazing service...our celebration was perfect every way! Robert was attentive to all our guests requirements, including dietary requirements and nothing was too much trouble! Thank you to Robert and his fantastic team for making this day a wonderful memory ...we are now trying to think of another occasion to celebrate at The Folly!!! In the meantime...we have booked for dinner next week, which will no doubt be sensational!!!

Always a delight.

I really don't know what to say about my recent visit to The Folly Inn. I could begin by saying that this is ... I've lost count ... the tenth time I've been to this quite remarkable restaurant. Quite simply put, I know before I arrive on each occasion ... and it's always an occasion! ... that I and my companions will have the most wonderful service, truly wonderful food, and overall a most memorable experience. If I could, I would eat here every week. If you have eaten here already, you don't need to read this. If you have not, may I suggest that you make a reservation as soon as you can. A splendid experience awaits you. The Folly Inn is a gem. And, my own choice of course, try the Hash starter. It is absolutely beautiful ... but one is spoiled for choice.
