The Folly Restaurant

Restaurant, Oxford

The Folly Restaurant is a riverside restaurant located in Oxford. Having received a certificate of excellence from tripadvisor, the family owned restaurant pride themselves on providing an excellent dining experience in a unique location with a stunning backdrop.

The restaurant required a substantial area of coverage on their outdoor terrace. They wanted their outdoor space to seem more appealing whatever the weather and wanted to encourage customers to take advantage of the amazing views that the restaurant has to offer.

A markilux syncra flex frame was installed, accompanied by two 1710 awnings in a cream colour palette. This suited the nautical theme well, as you can see from the images, the cream shading system complements the colours of the boats in the background well. As a result, the system provided extra cover and an enhanced dining experience, whilst failing to impede on the peaceful view of the water. With an extension of their usable space, they have been able to cater for more covers, providing them with more opportunities for profit.

System used

markilux syncra & markilux 1710

Small and compact. Perfect to fit at wall or at ceiling. Minimizing size and weight due to u-shaped front profile that encompasses elegantly both folding arms and roller tube: the markilux 990 is an ideal friend for balcony and patio. Last, not least because of its many choices – markilux 990 offers operation via round steel-link chain or via bionic tendon elbow joints, a broad variety of fabrics, intelligent accessories for perfect convenience. Only the sun does not (yet) come as an additional extra.
