We were travelling to Canterbury, in the middle of the afternoon, - a time when a lot of pubs have stopped serving. We were looking for somewhere to eat and having noticed the sign on the main road we decided to stop and try out the Artichoke. We did not know what to expect, but what a great find ! The garden was busy, the restaurant likewise, but the bar area thankfully had room. We visited with our 8 year-old.
Even at 3 in the afternoon, the place was full of walkers, cyclists and families. Whilst we had to understandably wait a while, the food when it arrived was fantastic.
The mixed grill is enormous, and apparently the plates are often not cleared, but I gave it my best shot ! Tremendous value for money. Kid's meals are also excellent, with chicken nuggets made from real chicken breast ! We will definitely return (even though it is not local for us), and have no hesitation in recommending the Artichoke to friends and family. Friendly staff and all together a great experience. Thank-you.
