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.

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.

The veggie options are very good and they have gravy to suit. Sometimes you have to queue but that is testament to how good the food is. You can easily seat large groups.

It's a great place to eat cheaply, the waitresses will let you know what deals are on even if you don't have paperwork.

Overall ok. We always enjoy a Toby. Very happy with the usual meal. Visited for lunch with my wife and my son. Used a voucher for free gorgeous ice cream. Just the service was slow, and they weren't that busy. Drinks came in late and had to chase the waitress because we wanted to leave.

We went there recently on a Sunday. We arrived just before 2pm and had to wait approximately 40 minutes for a table. It was very busy but once we got our table and food, the food was delicious. Very hot, lots of choice and a very good meal. It is a good hearty roast dinner for a very reasonable price.... More

If you are looking for an up market restaurant then don't go here then moan about it, if however you are looking for a no frills roast lunch with tasty desserts and friendly staff then this is the place for you. Yes it could do with a refurbishment but it is a victim of its own success and due to... More

My husband and I took my mother out for Sunday lunch to The Artichoke at Brentwood, which is a Toby Carvery. The staff were very helpful, we were told there would be 20/30 minutes for a table and given a block of plastic, which apparently would `bleep' when the table was ready! It did just that. We were then shown... More
