What can I expect on the day

Partake in a pre-dinner cruise and then dine at the Folly restaurant in Oxford with this superb package that is a great gift to give! Embarking from Folly Bridge, you will glide along the Thames through the heart of Oxford, taking in the sights and working up an appetite for your subsequent meal.

There's something rather serene and lovely about this Folly cruise and dine offering. Maybe it's the fact that you set sail in a 'Gentleman's Edwardian River Launch' just as the sun is waning, so you get that wonderful changing light and experience that evening calmness on the water? Or maybe it's because you will be dining at one of Oxford's finest bistros? It might even be simply because it's a moment you can really enjoy?

The itinerary for the cruising element of your evening is a classic tour of the river that winds its way through this renowned academic town. And as a reminder of that educational and sporting heritage, you'll drift gently past the university boat houses, as well as other delightful corners such as Christchurch Meadows. Oh and we should mention a glass of Prosecco will be served onboard to get this rather genteel party started

As you disembark on the mooring right outside No1 Folly Bridge, you'll love the candles and fairy lights that adorn the floating river terrace. If it's a suitably balmy evening you might be dining al fresco, otherwise you will be guided to your cosy table inside the restaurant.

As you peruse the menu for your three course a la carte meal, you'll soon appreciate that the food at the Folly is actually very accomplished cuisine and the fact that the small print on the menu states that main courses when ordered alone can take up to 40 minutes, assures you that all dishes are freshly prepared in a kitchen where the ping of the microwave isn't the norm.

We also have to mention that the Folly restaurant in Oxford also does a nice line in innovative cocktails (Banoffee Pie Martini anyone?) which could be the perfect accompaniment to your soiree of post river excursion dining at the Folly. Indulgent, impeccable service and really rather romantic. What's not to love?

What a lovely way to spend an evening. A gentle cruise along the Thames and back to a delicious meal at The Folly. Staff, situation and food could not have been bettered. I just wished we lived near enough to repeat this experience again and again.
