Booked a table for around 15 of us on a Thursday night and it was excellent. The food was great and quite reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and accommodating and a lovely atmosphere too. Will definitely be returning!

What was a quiet Resturant is now a loud music venue with total disregard for people living near by. Not only the intolerable music stopping us sleep we have the joy of the drunks at 01:00 when they kick them out .

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

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.
