Arrived early for our booking the lady agreed to let us have our table earlier than planned which was good. Restaurant was empty. Service was painfully slow staff were messing around ignoring customers. When our waiter arrived he was lovely. Took our order and waited...More

In London for weekend with my daughter, thought it looked nice when we walked passed earlier in the day but were very disappointed. The staff showing you to a table were very rude and arrogant. Waiting staff much better. Food was nice but you need...More

Extremely poor service with very arrogant staff. This used to be a nice venue to go to especially due to its location. Never again!

Visited many times before but this time was a disappointment. Miserable staff who couldn't advise about the food on the menu, forgotten orders, cold coffee and food and an automatic service charge added (luckily optional and actively removed by us). Heard other customers complaining and...More

I recently had to meet some colleagues over from the US so chose the Folly as it was easy for everyone to find being close to the underground network. It was busy and noisy (6.30 in the evening) so really glad we booked in advance...More

Had lunch here and the food was good and prices very good. There is a real buzz around this restaurant and it was packed for lunch. The only downside is that there is not a great deal of differentiation between buzz and noise. Be warned...More

The food was good quality and we enjoyed it. We were going to have dessert but after waiting for the dessert menu we waited another 20-25 minutes to try to order, we gave up. Then spent another 10 minutes trying to get the bill. Lovely...More

Went for a family Sunday brunch to celebrate a birthday. There was eight of us which clearly proved too taxing for the untrained and inattentive waiters. Service was diabolical and food was delivered piecemeal to three of our party. Rest of the food was sat...More

its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
