Ian Mapp left this review about The Folly

Rambling ex farm house with a wonderful beer garden.

Catering for diners, canal user and ramblers.

Food looked great and three real ales - 2 from Hook Norton and 1 from North Cotswold (chosen) were in excellent condition.

Recommended to seek out.

Very much as described in the previous two reviews, with a great old-fashioned feel. Beers (from Hook Norton, North Cotswold and a house beer of unknown origin) were in excellent condition and the home made food was also superb. Do reserve in advance if eating however. Strongly recommended.

The Folly has improved immeasurably over the last few years under the management of the characterful, friendly, welcoming and extravagantly moustachioed governor.
It has been well described already so I'll simply add that it is a cosy three roomed pub which is comfortably full of clutter with an attractive and welcoming staff who all seem to get along and enjoy working there. A winning recipe.
Food is reasonably priced (mains around £10) pub grub with both a home-cooked section on the menu and a specials board. All that we had was substantial and decent. Food is the main draw during the early evening with many of the tables on our Friday evening visit laid and reserved. Last food orders are at 8.30 though after which the pub becomes more of a local drinkers haunt and it's very easy to be drawn into friendly chat and banter with both staff and locals.
Beers available were mainly from Hook Norton - Hooky, Old Hooky and First Light with North Cotswold Shag Weaver being the only exception. The Shag Weaver was in good shape, went down well and was a welcome alternative to the malty Hook Norton beers.
A delightful pub to visit and with some decent beer to boot.
