We were told about this place and swung past one day for a coffee. WOW! Promised we would return for an evening meal and did so. Great atmosphere and fab staff. Paul very engaging. Food very good. Cheap and cheerful. As I say, a quirky gem in soulless Knowle Village.clearly used by locals with their lively kids. You can also take your dog! How grown up is that? Lovely. The quirky bit is that you are surrounded by bric a brac which you can buy on the way out! Only 3 miles from Fareham so a healthy walk and cab back. There is also a bus service so no problem with that extra bottle or two of wine then. We shall be back

This was my second visit to Arty's with my other half. Once again we were rewarded with a wonderful experience. Paul, as we found last time, was welcoming, funny and helpful. The food we had was the cheesy chips with jalapeños. We devoured this without pausing for breath! We then had a pizza which we shared and went half and half with the toppings as we couldn't chose one between us. This, again, was delicious and left us feeling very satisfied and content. We can't wait to go back again soon, as the fixtures and fittings change, so you can spend ages finding artefacts and other bits of pieces, all of which are for sale.

Went here on a Saturday night, it was quite lively with kids but it soon calmed down.

Had two pizzas and fries and bread and olives, all of which was lovely and cooked fresh. I asked for extra topping too which wasn't any much trouble.

Owner was really friendly and passionate about the bar.

Nice bottle of wine too and all for good prices.

Unique in that everything is for sale! But the only thing I would say is that it could be arranged better but there is A LOT of stuff for sale and that's part of its charm.

Overall great visit and would recommend to anyone.

Yet another superb evening at Arty's. Proper pizza, choice wines and an ever warm welcome from Julie & Paul keeps us returning!

A warm welcome from the ever jovial Paul and the most delicious pizzas. Toppings for all tastes and a cheeky side order of perfectly crisp and delicious chips (or a side salad for the more virtuous), washed down with a good selection of wines and draft beers. Definitely a destination eatery.
