Description: The Folly restaurant occupies a unique riverside position in the heart of Oxford. Our restaurant provides simply served, excellently cooked dishes crafted from the freshest seasonal ingredients. The restaurant's terrace floats on the waters of the River Thames as she runs gently under Folly Bridge. Inside we give a warm welcome throughout the year and offer relaxed drinks and dining from Sunday lunch to Saturday cocktails and everything in between.

Great time had by all. The staff were friendly and accommadating. The tasty food was beautifully presented and to have it all sat in lovely surroundings. It was a great afternoon spent with friends. We would recommend afternoon tea at Folly Bridge. The manager Eric has excellant communication skills and knows how to welcom his guests.

Staff were excellent and the cocktails were the best I've had in a while. Would love to go back in the summer.

I've now visited No. 1 Folly Bridge quite a few times - twice for high tea, once for a late lunch with my partner, and the last couple of times for a huge lunch for almost 30 people...and my 30th birthday party, which we decided would have a 1930s Speakeasy Prohibition Theme! We rented the whole Brasserie for the night, and it was AMAZING! So much effort went into all of the details, quite a few of them volunteered by the Folly Bridge team themselves, it made the overall success of this particular party (and my previous visits) very much down to an excellent choice in venue, staff, food and drink! You'll be seeing plenty of me in the future, that's for sure!

From the minute we walked in there is nothing I could fault. We were using a groupon voucher and still had perfect service and food. CONGRATULATIONS and thank you.
Great choice, great prices both for food and wine and of course the view, right on the river. We will be back
