Went for dinner without a reservation to find they were fully booked. There was a bit of expert table juggling and they squeezed us in. Really good meal and great service. Very friendly, thank you Folly Inn staff.

A very busy pub located next to the canal. The food was tasty but nothing special and I found the prices were on the higher end of the scale. The steak pie is a casserole with a pastry lid, this is not a pie.

A real pub in a canal-side setting at the end of Folly Lane in Napton on the Hill near Southam. You can expect a warm welcome, great beer, good food and on many occasions live music. The Folly has been a pub, lubricating local residents and canal folk since at least 1840 and possibly earlier. It continues to fulfil this role as a 'real pub' with individual style and quirkiness.
