About Us

Folly Lake Cafe photoRisby fishing ponds were built 17 years ago on the ancient site of Risby hall and gardens. The hall was burnt to the ground in 1784 but the Folly remains on the bank of the lake which adopts its name. All the lakes are set in a tree lined undulating valley that once boasted one of the biggest deer parks in Yorkshire. The odd wild deer can still be seen by the die hard early rising fisherman.

Here at Folly Lake Café, we not only have homemade cakes, alcoholic beverages and a fantastic selection of freshly made food, we also have the perfect environment in which to enjoy them. Whether you’re a seasoned fisher or simply a person who enjoys fine views, we have it all here at Folly Lake Café.
