We have always enjoyed our visits here. Many good meals, served efficiently and in lovely surroundings. It's a very good restaurant with a great range of menu options. The bar menu is decent. It doesn't quite squeak into 5 stars, but it's not far off. Well worth a visit.

Me and my partner ordered Squid, Chilli and Rocket pizza whilst I ordered Meatballs and Chilli. When the pizzas arrived they were coated in cheese which completely ruined the taste and overpowered the pizzas. The side dish of doughballs and chilli was a joke, nearer to soggy bread. On the plus side it was two for one on the pizzas... More

Visited with family (14 of us) this weekend. A really great experience all in all! Set right by the canal there's seating outside to enjoy a coffee or a beer. We were really well looked after, the waitress was patient and gave us plenty of time to settle. Great menu choices - i had the seafood pizza which was lush.... More

I've eaten many roasts all over Chester and I can say that the one served in the Artichoke is the best by far. Nice staff, warm atmosphere, beautiful and calmed place (far from the usual Chester busyness) and the food has always been very nice (I absolutely love their honey glazed parsnips). A special mention of their great range of... More
