A great place for a special meal, we took our parents and they loved it. Need to book as we've been disappointed before when they are fully booked.

Came here for a meal one evening, pre-booking was essential as it can get very busy. The staff were friendly and attentive, the pub quirky and cozy and the food was lovely. I thought it was a tad on the expensive side, but on the...More

Quirky canal side pub. British pub classics on the menu. Faggots were good, my daughters scampi was enjoyed. Really good selection of craft ales.

A real pub in a canal-side setting at the end of Folly Lane in Napton on the Hill near Southam. You can expect a warm welcome, great beer, good food and on many occasions live music. The Folly has been a pub, lubricating local residents and canal folk since at least 1840 and possibly earlier. It continues to fulfil this role as a 'real pub' with individual style and quirkiness.
