Whatever the occasion, we provide a comfortable and relaxed environment to dine with family and friends. Our suppliers are small local producers. Folly IPA, brewed for us by Roland and team at The Brentwood Brewery, is one of four resident ales on our bar. We know how much you like a well-kept real ale, so you can be sure our casks are carefully looked after, offering you a good pint! Our well stocked bar is sure to have everything you need, from champagne and sparkling to single estate wines handpicked by us to suit the dishes on our menu.
The Folly Bistro is a fully refurbished bistro pub, a stone's throw away from Chelmsford and the A12, tucked just inside the countryside village of East Hanningfield. We have everything you would expect from a British bistro, from house-made shortcrust pies, to fresh fish and steaks. Our seasonal specials will tempt you into trying something new! Bookings are advisable for lunch and dinner. The restaurant area offers cosy dining by a roaring fire, quiet corners for a romantic meal and larger tables for families to meet and dine together. During the warmer months we offer alfresco dining in the courtyard entrance a gentle extension of the restaurant - weather permitting!
