“Quantity and quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

Lovely atmosphere in a proper "Olde-worldy" pub. The feature table is centered around a covered 300 year old well and seats six people comfortably. Really good selection of traditional English fayre and no scrimping on the helpings. First rate friendly service who cater to dietary needs or tweaks to the menu.
Add the log fire and Christmas decorations and you have a chance to imagine times gone by.

One word of advice - only have three courses if you have a large appetite, can eat a lot of good, tasty food and don't have far to walk to the car!!

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Came here for Sunday lunch, it was packed but they fitted us in at short notice . We were so glad they did, the roast was first class and plenty of it. Takes a lot to fill my hubby up be he was very happy! The pub is wonderful olde world charm with gorgeous roaring log fires. We will be returning soon.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Have visited the artichoke on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the evening. The food is of an excellent standard, very good value and a wonderful atmosphere. I really do not understand how anyone could leave a negative review, I always recommend the Artichoke to friends and feel confident that they will have a lovely meal.
