Stopped off here when on a canal boat holiday. Moored at Napton and this pub was a 15 minute walk along the canal. Incredible food and service and a great selection of vegi options too. Definitely worth a visit!

A real pub in a canal-side setting at the end of Folly Lane in Napton on the Hill near Southam. You can expect a warm welcome, great beer, good food and on many occasions live music. The Folly has been a pub, lubricating local residents and canal folk since at least 1840 and possibly earlier. It continues to fulfil this role as a 'real pub' with individual style and quirkiness.
