Venue Introduction

Escape to The Folly, immerse yourself in a world of wonder and relax in this botanically-inspired haven. An eye-catching centre-piece, 8m-high Norwegian Spruce tree trunk runs from the basement through the floor above to the main bar, plant-pot lampshades and a bee hive-inspired back-bar work together to create a bar and restaurant that instills a sense of the outdoors and nods to all things natural.

The large dining room sees heavy-set wooden bench tables set against contemporary bar stools to create an open-plan feel where guests can watch the theatre of the kitchen. For a little more privacy, the chunky kitchen-style chef ’s table is ideal for 14 guests. Towards the rear of the first floor, the library snug is great for a quick coffee with friends, where books are read, borrowed and replaced at leisure.        

Additional Notes:

Downstairs, three raised private vaults, decorated with free-hand botanical ‘graffiti’, each have space for six to people-watch from above, whilst curvaceous leather booths are great for cocktail sharing. Turn to the deli or ‘potting shed’ for foodie delights from Borough Market including Spanish specialities from Lethams, oils from Danilo Manco of The Olive Oil Mill as well as mustards and pickles from London’s oldest butcher shop, Allens of Mayfair. Bursting with freshly made breads, sandwiches and cured meats, the deli is a quick and easy option for those grabbing a bite to have at their desk.

The potting shed also offers freshly cut flowers for those last minute gifts whilst a pop-up element to the space provides guests with something current, seasonal and fun to explore time and time again, from a hair and make-up boutique one month to a champagne bar the next followed by a cupcake cafe, it’s full of surprises!
