When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings - including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Brentwood's favourite carvery restaurant.

Dead quiet!

Popped out for a " spur of the moment" family meal, haven't been here for a long time. We arrived about 8.15 p.m. Which is near close of service, because they shut it down at 9.15 p.m. The last time we were here the place was heaving and the wait for a table was long!

My wife and I took our granddaughter and her boyfriend here to dinner. The tables hadn't been cleaned properly. There was rubbish and bits of food left under the tables. The carvery was not up to the standard it used to be, the beef was particularly poor, though the gammon was good. Vegetables ok but some had been left out... More

we have been visiting the artichoke for a number of years now and have always enjoyed the food very much. last week we visited and the quality of the food had dropped quite a bit although it was midweek and it was early in the afternoon, I think we will give it one more chance as it has always been...

We was given our buzzer and went to get a drink, the buzzer went off immediately so we went to our table, so first impression... More

Hazel was lovely but that's probably only saving grace. Food was dry and bland, stuffing was in particular quite bad. Flavourless and doughy, like it hadn't been cooked for long enough. Beef was fatty and portion size was meagre. Horseradish sauce had no spice or hotness to it at all. We were left waiting for a little bit before being... More

My wife and I decided to have breakfast out for a change before going shopping. The Artichoke is on route so we gave it a try. We were greeted by a teenager who took our money and gave us mugs and cutlery, no napkin. We were left to find a table. Breakfast is buffet style and you could help yourself... More

Excellent food piping hot, we gave gone in the week and also Sundays. It's a pity you cannot book as it really gets crowded on Sundays especially. Also breakfast is very good value.

Description

When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings - including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Brentwood's favourite carvery restaurant.
