Tried Folly Lake for lunch on the back of all the positive reviews but unfortunately we did not get a positive experience. On arrival we were told by a member of staff that they had been hoping to go home because it was a slow day so we did not feel very welcome. We felt the cafe was very dark... More

Lovely to sit in the sun and enjoy the views whilst enjoying a very good scone and cuppa. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I've been here once before this visit & cannot complain about the food or setting - although the menu seems to more limited now than before. Also the 'cash payments only' could put some people off - there are no cash machines nearby. I came here with a friend and 4 children between us. We were unaware there would be... More

I used to visit Folly Lake Cafe fairly often with my nana when she was well, we both absolutely loved it!! We enjoy very different things but found they catered for both, veggie options available. Whether you fancy a teacake, scone, quiche or just a coffee and cake it's lovely. All cakes homemade and what a range! Lovely in the... More

A lovely afternoon spent in a peaceful setting beautiful cakes, coffee, savouries, sat outside in the spring sunshine with the only sounds being birdsong.

We've been coming here for a good few years and it still feels like a secret. Large wedges of cake, good savouries, nice drinks. It's a lovely calming place to be sat there on a still, hot cloudless day!!

Lovely lakeside setting, we went mid week but I expect it gets very busy at weekend & in the summer as there is a nice walk round the area. Quite pricey sandwiches were between £6 & £8 & cakes were about £3.50. Proper home cooked chips which were lovely a real treat & despite the cost would definitely go again... More

Decided to call in for lunch having heard good reviews. A small cafe in a lovely location. Menu is fairly small and mainly sandwiches/quiche etc and of course a great choice of cake! I went for the hot roast beef baguette and it was delicious!! Very tender and with lovely gravy. Served with a salad garnish and homemade chips. A... More
