Cruise and Dine at The Folly Restaurant

Elegance and simplicity come together in this river cruise and three-course dining experience at The Folly


2 hours in total: 40 Minute Cruise + Dinner (we suggest allowing at least 90 minutes for your meal)


Your experience begins boarding one of our elegant Edwardian Gentleman's River Launches for a 30-minute cruise taking in the highlights of river life in Oxford. We see Folly Bridge, Christchurch Meadows, the University boathouse, and part of the Regatta course whilst a complementary glass of Prosecco* is served. This can be a wonderful time to be on the river as the sun gets lower in the sky and the light takes on a magical quality.

We disembark at The Folly restaurant where your exquisite meal will be served in charming surroundings either inside the restaurant or, if the weather allows, on the floating river terrace. The Folly's a la carte menu offers relaxed fine dining (sample menu here) and there is a comprehensive wine list available to complement your meal.**

Our Cruise and Dine combines two of Oxford's great attractions to create an exceptional and memorable experience.
