Reservations & COVID Arrangements

Reservations are a must, so we can manage the timings of our incoming & outgoing guests – call 01245 400315

Our ‘little’ bistro originally built in 1642 wasn’t designed for distancing! – however we have made lots of changes to help protect you & our team during this time

We would politely ask you to:

Sanitise your hands when you enter the Folly (for convenience we have a foot operated sanitiser unit to the left of the front door)

Take notice of the new signage & any instruction from our team

Maintain social distancing & be aware of the space of other diners

Most importantly not to visit us if you feel unwell or have any COVID symptoms


We take our responsibility of reducing the spread of coronavirus very seriously. Our team are fully aware of their responsibilities & new practices. Staff temperatures are checked before entering the building prior to the start of their working day. As always hands are washed frequently & surfaces sanitised after every use. We now have ‘single use’ menus. We will be wearing PPE where appropriate to do so. Tables have been removed to maintain distance & allowed sufficient time between reservations to correctly sanitise the table, chairs & surrounding area.

The Folly Team would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to check our COVID arrangements prior to your visit & also for your patience as we find our way to a new ‘normal’.
