Description: The Folly Wine Bar & Restaurant is one of Petersfield's most iconic and popular places. With its high, wooden timbered vaulted ceiling, leaded windows and congenial atmosphere, you'd be forgiven for thinking our beautiful building was a centuries-old country retreat. Although it could easily embody such a history, it was actually purpose-built in 1916 as Petersfield's local garage. Family-owned and run, The Folly is a stylish, warm and inviting drinking, dining and socialising icon in the heart of Petersfield. Combining the character of a superb heritage building with a delightful menu and wine selection- it is a true hidden gem.

These day very rarely do you have a meal for two with no mistakes, so our Saturday night romatic meal for two was just perfect due to the smiling staff, beautiful relaxed atmosphere and perfect food. French onion soup was rich and delicious and our venison was tender and sweet. Portions were good for my hungry husband and the citrous tart was melt in the mouth.

We did not try the wine but I was impressed with the "bin end " board.

We will be back - thanks for a super evening

If you are planning a wedding in the Petersfield area and are looking for a warm, welcoming, intimate reception venue then I urge you to consider The Folly. On the lead up to the big day all staff were extremely helpful and professional, allowing us to come and sample menus, discuss room layout, decoration and general organisation of the day. The day itself was perfect - pimms on arrival, a superb meal for myself and my 45 guests, excellent service.

As for the evening do (which we held in the same venue), we couldn't have asked for better. The bar was well manned, the DJ knew exactly where he needed to be and what to do (he had been able to liaise with The Folly before the event), and the staff ensured that the dance floor was never empty!

All in all, a perfect day and night - thank you to all at The Folly for helping to make our wedding so special.
