Lovely food and great service. Portions are generous. I had the poached egg and smoked salmon on crushed potatoes, which was big enough for two!
Good value and would recommend.

We booked a table for my sisters birthday lunch and were looking forward to our first visit. We asked for a table near the window as it's quite dingy inside but the waiter told us only larger parties could book those tables, there were 4 of us. That was okay, we were seated elsewhere and we were happy until another waiter came to take our order. No hello, no smile, just "are you ready to order yet ?" So we quickly ordered some cocktails which were great. Unfortunately, the waiter was extremely dry and miserable which made our dining experience here slightly marred, especially when I asked him nicely to clean my corner of the table as there was some dry sticky sauce from the previous customers and every time leant My elbow got stuck...........The food was good
But I won't be visiting again

We went to a friend's birthday celebrations, having paid a small deposit per head in advance.
The bar area was very busy and service time at the bar was around 15 minutes. We were told our 9 o'clock table would be delayed for 15 minutes and the party of 18 was left to stand amongst the throngs of drinkers on their Saturday night out. We were not seated until after 9.45 and our food orders were not taken until 10. The starters came out relatively quickly and were ok. But people were so hungry by this point, they just ate.
The main courses from the set menu (choice of chicken, salmon or pizza) were not brought to the table until 10.50 and the salmon and chicken dishes were all cold. The pizzas were a good 5 minutes later than those. A waiter promised to bring some warm mashed potato to the table but nothing materialised. At 11.20, some of the party had to leave their meals unfinished in order to catch the last train home - 2 and a half hours (from 9pm) should have been ample time to eat 3 courses.
To add insult to injury, the toilets were disgusting - in the gentlemen's toilets there was faeces smeared on cubicle walls.
10% service charge was added and then 20% deducted from the total bill as recompense for a disorganised and very disappointing evening.

Enjoyed an excellent pre Christmas meal for two at Artisan. Fairly simple fare of excellent quality and quantity which is very well prepared and presented. Accompanied by an excellent Italian Pinot Noir and delivered with friendly, timely and engaging service.

Reminded me of an excellent meal at Smiths (Smithfields Market) but Manchester style ie as good but £20 cheaper.

Full of 20/30 year olds and serious up market competition to Nandos.
