About The Artichoke
The Artichoke is a beautiful pub situated in the village of Croxley Green. Once you have visited The Artichoke you will see many of the beautiful original features, which have aged so well in time, sitting alongside the tasteful, more recent decor which still allows the pub to retain a country atmosphere from bygone days. The chefs focus on using quality produce and delicacies to create the most stunning food based on British classics.
Great food and a lovely place to go for an afternoon.
Had a very nice Sunday roast Thanks
Sirloin steak was badly presented, with only chips on the plate (steak was not cooked as asked and too thin), no garnish, my daughter had pasta, which lacked sauce and the pasta was beginning to dry on the top and the hot iron bean dish came up luke warm (had the cheek to put a protector on the handle), which I expected to see come up sizzling! My son had the best dish - the ultimate burger. To top it all, the waitress never said a word when collecting the plates and did not come back for a pudding order (we had helped ourselves to the pudding menu), but decided, after a long, long wait, to go up to the bar, pay and just get out of there! Did mention it to the bar person who took our money. To make it worse, it was supposed to be a surprise birthday dinner - it has been one of our worst dinners and a very disappointing birthday surprise! Sorry!
Come here at least once a month and its brilliant every time. Food is great and great value for money. In the summer its an even better place to be as it has a nice garden. Highky recommend.
Excellent as always
I visited on Sunday. I'm dairy free and so usually order vegan so I know my food will be dairy free. There was a mix up and I got dairy cheese on top of my risotto. I queried the cheese and the manager was lovely. He took my food away whilst he checked what happened with the kitchen. The manager explained that there was a mix up in the kitchen. He personally brought me a second risotto with dairy free cheese on the side. When we ordered pudding I double checked that the vegan torte was totally dairy free. The waitress checked with the manager and the manager checked the allergen folder before personally assuring me there was no dairy. I was very very impressed by the attention to detail and the attentiveness of the staff. The food was amazing. Definitely be returning and will tell anyone that will listen just how lovely and helpful the staff were.
Lovely roast dinner Good service
Food was very average. The same menu as The Feathers but not as good as there. Drinks are overpriced for a pub! Staff were lovely but won’t be in a hurry to rush back.
We like this pub very much. Nice food and ambience
Food is average at best, our server never went through the specials or dish of the day. We have been here twice for dinner now and have been let down twice. I will not be eating here for a long time.
We cannot thank Carl and the Team at The Artichoke more, for making my celebration with them so special! We hired out the back area of the Pub from 6pm till midnight, the costs comes off any food or drinks packages you order. We ordered both some food (you can order as much or as little food as you like, it’s not tied into how many guests you have and the food is delicious!) and some drinks packages and we fired a DJ – for about 60+ guests. The staff were superb from clearing an area to allow for a dance floor, popping up my decorations, topping up glasses throughout the evening and clearing up at the end. All my guests had a fabulous time and commented on how good the location, service and food was – we honestly couldn’t recommend it more!
Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon. Myself and my colleagues were incredibly impressed with the service and the food as we were such a large group. We were looked after very well by all the staff. Thank you we look forward to visiting again very soon.
Good food and excellent service
Excellent food and ambience - very nice staff...would highly recommend
A tad pricey but food was good; swift, efficient and friendly service.
A bit disappointed that after completing a full pre-order from our guests we then arrived to find dishes were not available, surely the whole point or pre-order is that you will be ready for us! Also found my starter of squid pretty poor, 4/5 pieces of random placed squid and a poultry portion of low grade salad
Amazing service! Fab food! I had the flat bread salad which was so fresh and delicious and really big- beautiful.
Great location, we were seated at the table overlooking The Green which was perfect for a Spring day. Two of our party had mobility problems and one was in a wheelchair and this was not an issue. The food was good too!
Wonderful evening at The Artichoke - fabulous food and service, will definitely be back! Thank you.
Service was excellent, the food was OK, not great, OK, also some of the chairs need cleaning and repairing, but apart from that we’d go back
Lovely food, very fresh taste to all, excellent service.
No very impressed with Sunday roast. Found the beef very tough and all dinners were lukewarm. As we were with friends we did not complain at the time wished I had. Would not recommend Sunday lunch. Will not be using your restaurant in the future. Very disappointed. I would add service seemed good though and very polite.
Excellent service and a perfect Sunday lunch
Good food and atmosphere. Friendly service
