The Folly stands beside the River Medina and you can, if you wish, travel here from Cowes on the pub’s own waterbus. In the bar are timbers from the hull of an old barges. The menus offer a wide choice of lighter bites – sandwiches and jacket potatoes – as well as burgers, steaks and classic pub grub such as sausage and mash; and breaded Whitby scampi tails. In addition, there are sharing platters, and international mains such as sizzling fajitas. Wednesday evening is ‘Get Spicy’ curry night and from Mondays to Fridays, the 'Great Value' meal option is popular.
