Square Meal Review of The Folly ?

‘It’s chic & very now’ says one reader of this capacious, typically theatrical Drake & Morgan bar, laid out on two levels close to the north end of London Bridge. The decor has a garden theme, with lots of greenery, a resident florist & some pretty furniture with hints of Scandinavian modern & 50s ‘stil nuovo’; there are even some pop-up shopping opportunities too. Cocktails include classics-with-a-twist, low-cal ‘skinnies’ & punch bowls for sharing, while food is served from breakfast onwards, with a menu that rounds up everything from fondues to flatbreads, Thai green curry & club sandwiches. If looks & inventiveness were everything, The Folly would be an unqualified success, but quibbles over food & service suggest it’s sometimes a case of ‘style over substance’.

Wine List Of The Year

This bustling bar/restaurant in the heart of the City demands a list that lets customers make an informed decision quickly, and the team at Justerini & Brooks have worked closely with The Folly to do that quite beautifully. Compact and easy-to-follow, the list covers a lot of bases very quickly – and the inclusion of the dragonfly logo (‘The Folly Recommends’) is a neat touch.
