The Folly Inn

The Folly is a rustic pub perched on the banks of the River Medina, with lovely views from a large beer garden and patio. It's easily accessible by road or boat with its own mooring attracting a large number of both yachts and motor boats, as well as tourists and visitors to nearby Osborne House. A friendly river taxi "The Folly Waterbus" can transport you up the river from Cowes.

Legend has it that The Folly originated from a barge that ran aground whilst selling illegal liquor in the 1700s!

Today The Folly Inn is an extremely popular open plan, destination food house with a good selection of wines and real ale. It is advisable to book, especially at weekends.

Add to this the hugely popular live entertainment and unbeatable atmosphere on a Saturday night and you have a pub which should be on your "must try soon" list.
