The Folly is a strange pub. On entering it looks a bit dowdy. Only one real ale on offer IPA but it was in excellent condition. The welcome from the staff was very friendly & genuine. We had booked a table but it was in a busy area, my wife asked if they had another table. They moved us to a quieter part of the pub with no problem. The food is very reasonably priced & of a good standard. When you consider the amount of casual visitors that pass through the Folly they could get away with less. I can only compliment them on their high standards & good value. The pub may look a little care worn but they are certainly worth their plus 8 rating.

Very popular Greene King pub on the water. Unsurprisingly, given the location, quite a few boaty people in. Although I agree with Lipster that it's no bad thing.
Big outdoor and indoor areas, with plenty of tables set aside for dining. Large menu with ever changing specials. Mains around the 10 mark.
Only one local beer (Goddard's Special) which I found a bit bland, with Old Speckled Hen and Abbot Ale also on tap.
Wine drinkers were kept happy by the selection on offer.
While the food was reasonably priced and decent (great pie), I did think the drinks were a bit expensive. Booze and softs, with a half of Coke 1.85.
Excellent service and friendly staff which is always worth an extra point or two.
TV with BBC News rolling around constantly and a pool table at the back.
Went back for a second visit, so can't have been that bad...

Lovely pub in a fantastic location serving excellent beer and food. Service was excellent although it was very busy.

If you can survive the evil potholes on the approach road, it's well worth finding this place. I took the "ignore national beer" option and had a local Isle of Wight beer - Goddard's Special - which was delightful and perfect supping for the sunshine. The duck wrap I ordered was good too. Despite the food queue, the food came quickly. Not the most obvious area to go to, but we could have stayed all afternoon had we not had the small matter of a wedding to attend in the nearby church. Boaty, but in a good way!

What a fantastic pub. I have visited IOW twice for the music festivals. However I have spent more time in this place than the festival itself! The folly inn has reached a cult status as some stars have been known to pop in before they perform. Keith 'cheggers' chegwin was in the house when I was there. Wa hey!
