Quintessential thatched country inn for foodies

At a glance

Restaurant menu
Open all year

Sitting beside the A5 opposite Towcester Racecourse, the Folly beckons with its picture-postcard looks, flower-filled hanging baskets and coaching lamps. The interior reveals all the hallmarks of a proper diners’ pub, with neatly laid tables in a clean and fresh setting. Lunchtime classics range from roasted pork belly and crackling, to mushroom, brie, spinach and cranberry Wellington. Dinner could feature Perkins Lodge Farm steaks or pan-fried chicken breast stuffed with crab meat and wrapped in Parma ham. Desserts are tried and tested favourites such as blueberry and buttermilk pannacotta or sticky toffee pudding. If a glass of ale in the extensive rear garden is all that’s required, three of the county’s most cherished breweries are on tap.
