Combine a serene pre-dinner river cruise with an exquisite three course evening meal at our restaurant.

Your experience begins at 6pm, boarding one of our elegant Edwardian Gentleman's River Launches for a 30 minute cruise taking in the highlights of river life in Oxford. We see Folly Bridge, Christchurch Meadows, the University boat houses and part of the Regatta course whilst a complementary glass of Prosecco* is served. This can be a wonderful time to be on the river as the sun gets lower in the sky and the light takes on a magical quality.

Disembarking on to the restaurants pontoon your dinner will be served in charming surroundings either inside the restaurant or, if the weather allows, on the floating river terrace.

Our Cruise and Dine experience combines two of Oxford's best experiences in to an exceptional and memorable evening. 

The cruise lasts approximately 30 minutes and we suggest allowing at least 90 minutes for your meal. Advance booking is essential. £55pp. 

*passengers must be over 18. A soft drink alternative is available. 

**ticket price includes a starter, main course and dessert from The Folly a la carte menu. A surcharge may apply to a small number of premium menu items. Additional items such as drinks to accompany your meal, side orders and service charge are not included and must be paid to The Folly at the end of your meal. 

We had such a joyful cruise and then followed up with a great meal from the a la carte menu. In my view it was good value for money and a great way to enjoy an Oxford evening.

People who have tried it tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained.
