Restaurant description

A haven of greenery in Monument, The Folly Bar is a botanically-themed restaurant and bar from restaurateurs Drake and Morgan. Modern European dishes partner exciting cocktails at this quirky setting, characterised by giant Norwegian spruce trees.

A kaleidoscopic menu at The Folly Bar ranges from British classic beer-battered fish and chips, to prawn lollipops and a wagyu burger with blue cheese. Succulent steaks are served with chips, watercress and a choice of sauce, while a breakfast and brunch menu offers a variety of options from around the world.

Tree trunks run the length of the basement and up into the main bar at The Folly Bar in London, accompanying plant-pot lampshades and a beehive-inspired bar. Drinks range from hearty ales to fairytale-inspired cocktails, while the ‘potting shed’ deli offers delights from Borough market.

The Folly Bar Gracechurch Street is just a minute’s walk from Monument Station, and runs frequent cocktail and flambé classes.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    It’s too big and so loud. In dining area you don’t need such loud music. Couldn’t hear what people we’re saying.

    Chips were cold . Food just average . Chefs seems to cook food and leave it under the lights - warming for toooo long . Also very difficult to read the money . Bad lighting x

    The whole experience was excellent. The service was great and the food was delectable. If I had to dig deep for a fault I felt the portion size was a little meager.

    Service was poor, had to ask for our order to be taken and where our food was. I ordered the duck hash and it was awful - just a piece of duck fat on some potatoes

    First of all the staff couldn't find my booking, though they did rapidly take us to a table. When the wine arrived it was warm and when the food came it was cold. The staff were apologetic , helpful , friendly and quick to put things right. I am not sure I would want to go there again though

    Ok, but no choice of where to sit, even though room was available, got taken downstairs. Food was pretty average, had the warm salmon salad, not worth the money.
