The Folly Inn
Perched along the banks of the River Medina and round the corner from Osborne House, you'll find The Folly Inn; a rural pub serving up traditional, reasonably priced foods to yachtsman and tourists alike. As legend would have it, The Folly started up in the 1700s by a French smuggling barge selling illegal alcohol after running aground. After realising the success, there came the Inn.
The Folly Inn is all about providing a massive welcome to anyone who walks in the door and with a grand menu selection and a specials board that changes daily, it is sure to satisfy everyone's taste buds. This open-plan pub is great for families and groups, providing a relaxed atmosphere and rustic feel. The pub is great for a summery day with a large picnic area leading onto the river, but if the weather fails, the pub is well-equipped with plenty of room indoors.
The food is delicious and varied - extremely popular for groups of sailors, friends and families. Large groups of workmates always book The Folly Inn early for their Christmas parties - knowing how quickly the excellent three course Christmas meals on offer will be snapped up!
The evenings bring a lively, fun atmosphere for people of all ages. There is often live music and once the tables have been cleared, the large sturdy tables have been known to turn into a dance floor for some groups... And don't think its just the young ones!
