After reading the reviews about The Folly Tearoom on Trip Advisor we went off in search of it and most certainly were not disappointed.
Tucked away in the back of Hoppers Yard it really does maintain the tradition of the quintessential English tea room.
There are six or so tables inside and about the same in an outside garden setting which is expertly planted and very relaxing. We elected to sit in the garden, not least to admire the plants, most of which were in full flower.
Drinks are served in china cups and there is a keen attention to detail.
The green wicker tables are nicely spread around the garden area so you have the feeling of being in your own space.
A pot of tea for two was served in a large tea pot and was a quality leaf tea, served in a novel pot top strainer and although we had not specified a particular blend the one served was delicious.
Although when we arrived we sat in the garden area alone, by the time we left tables were filling quickly which is no surprise, we will certainly be calling again now The Folly is on our radar. Given the bill we were presented with we got extremely good value for money and I would wager that much of The Follies trade is repeat custom.
I will certainly be recommending The Folly to all friends visiting Holt.
