Description: The Folly Wine Bar & Restaurant is one of Petersfield's most iconic and popular places. With its high, wooden timbered vaulted ceiling, leaded windows and congenial atmosphere, you'd be forgiven for thinking our beautiful building was a centuries-old country retreat. Although it could easily embody such a history, it was actually purpose-built in 1916 as Petersfield's local garage. Family-owned and run, The Folly is a stylish, warm and inviting drinking, dining and socialising icon in the heart of Petersfield. Combining the character of a superb heritage building with a delightful menu and wine selection- it is a true hidden gem.

Came here for lunch in January, me and my partner weren't planning to but we thought it would be nice to try somewhere new.
We both got the lunchtime burger with bacon jam and chips.
The burger was so yummy, everything went really well together. We both had sticky toffee puddings after and it was actually a homemade pudding. Like the ones up north.
It was hearty and filling and everything a sticky toffee pudding should be.
I love this place and the atmosphere is lovely, and it's really romantic.
The staff are really friendly and attentive.
I would definitely recommend coming here:)

This was the perfect venue for my wife's party as we already knew , having been to several functions there before. Every detail is taken care of and the food served for the evening buffet was superb. This venue has such a great atmosphere and is perfect for live music with our friends enjoying a rocking good night dancing to the I Witness band. If you want a party then this is the venue for you!

We visited as a bunch of friends for the early evening menu, which is great value at £12 for 2 courses and £15 for 3 courses. Nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle. Efficient but unobtrusive service. All enjoyed the food and ambience.

The Folly Wine Bar downstairs was full as we arrived without reservations. It was suggested we try 'Upstairs at the Folly' which I understand is now under the same ownership, for our business lunch with clients in tow. What a great decision!

The place wasn't full but considering the warmth of welcome, attentive service and really lovely homely food I'm surprised it wasn't packed.

A good steak, great wine pairing from the waiter and a lovely venue. Thank you.
We will be back.
