Enjoy a quintessentially English afternoon in Oxford with this delightful dining experience at The Folly. You and a friend will be welcomed into this unique city centre restaurant, perched on the banks of the River Thames, for a simply magnificent afternoon tea for two with exquisite views of Oxford’s famous boats floating by.
Relax with a glass of chilled sparkling wine as you both indulge in a delicious array of fresh sandwiches, assorted cakes or pastries, scones with cream and jam, all served alongside your choice of tea or coffee. You can choose to head out onto the restaurant’s floating river terrace in warmer months and will be in easy reach of a cruise boat if you fancy continuing your journey by water after your tea. Few venues in Oxford can offer such a special riverside setting in which to enjoy this traditional afternoon treat, so prepare for an outing to remember with this fabulous afternoon tea for two at The Folly.
On arrival at the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by staff and shown to your table where you’ll enjoy a delicious afternoon tea for two. Sit back and relax as you feast on a tasty selection of sandwiches, cakes or pastries, scones with cream and jam, as well as your choice of tea or coffee.
As part of your dining experience, you’ll also be treated to a refreshing glass of chilled sparkling wine each – the perfect beverage to accompany your traditional afternoon tea for two. Take some time to soak up the spectacular views from this unique riverside venue before leaving for whatever the rest of your day has in store, whether it’s sightseeing in the city or taking a river cruise along the Thames.

A relaxing, friendly experience.
I bought this experience a few months ago for myself a friend to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon in October. It was super easy to book and the postal confirmation came the next day. I rang up the venue to book a table, as suggested on the booking information, and the staff were extremely helpful on the phone and throughout our tea yesterday. I anticipated some difficulty with payment or getting a bad table because we were using vouchers, but I'm pleased to say I need not have worried. We opted to sit outside as it was still sunny, everything was brought to us promptly and was delicious. This was my first time booking anything through lastminute.com as I'm always a little skeptical and believe you get what you pay for, but I'll be booking a lot more in the near future! Thank you!
