A little gem in the centre of Petersfield. Beautiful, versatile venue that is equally perfect for a special party, a romantic meal for two, lunch with friends or just somewhere to relax with a glass of wine. The Friday steak and music nights have put...More

Excellent service and attention to detail, good food and relaxed atmosphere. Ideal for a couple or whole family, would recommend the pea and asparagus soup, fresh light and seasonal. An enjoyable evening

Came here for lunch in January, me and my partner weren't planning to but we thought it would be nice to try somewhere new. We both got the lunchtime burger with bacon jam and chips. The burger was so yummy, everything went really well together....More

Hi Melvyn, The building was converted in the late 1970's from a former car garage, and no provision was made for a lift, and as tenants, we are not permitted to change the internal layout or install a stairlift! However, our... More

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.
