Good service, delicious food - loved the Hoisin Duck wrap! Great size and flavour. Had all chips/fries and all delicious; especially the sweet potato fries! You need to create a gluten free menu - even if it’s just colouring in the gluten free friendly options on your menu - as it’s not right that the customer should have to look through the book to work out what they can/can’t eat. Also, gluten free bread should be advertised on lunch menu. Overall lovely food and experience. Tim and colleague (blond lad cropped hair) were very attentive! Will be back soon!

Last minute Sunday lunch, after seeing our daughter off on a school trip. Roast beef was delicious, highly recommend. My husband had the burger which was equally nice! A pleasant meal in pleasant surroundings. Service efficient.

After a couple of, less than perfect, experiences in pub/restaurant's over the past couple of months it was a pleasure to come to the Artichoke where the food, staff and overall experience was perfect. Thank you.

The ‘Wednesday’ wine offer of £10 off a bottle of ‘selected’ wines is very misleading. Given the limited extent of the wines it may be assumed they’re all ‘selected’. You need to make it much clearer which wines are included in the offer. I felt cheated when told the bottle I had chosen was not a ‘selected bottle.

We had to stand at bar for 10 minutes until we were acknowledged..only one couple at bar n 2 serving n after 10 mins told them we had booked table n then had to wait "as she was busy"...but doing nothing. I wont come back again as the service n professional attitude is what you woukd expect and this was not evident last night.

Went for Sunday lunch disappointing I’m afraid. The roast potatoes were so rubbery that we couldn’t cut through the skin. Had the Italian Bean Hash; a plate full of beans and tomatoes really needed something on the side which it didn’t come with. Service was great as usual. Although they failed to return our credit card to us when we paid so I had to go back this afternoon to collect. It’s not as good as it used to be which is such a shame.

Hi Yogita, thank you for the feedback regarding your recent visit. Our roasties are usually a big hit on a Sunday, its disappointing that you didnt feel they were up to standard. We hope to see you again soon, and we can show you the level you and we expect of ourselves

I would like it better if one of the numerous phone calls I made to book a table was answered. The pub itself, it’s environment, decor, design is very nice , food not bad but every time we visit, there is a problem with staff - lack of, inexperienced with little supervision, overworked and frustrated etc. No complaint about the service though as they are trying their hardest with a smile.

Nice venue but got a table with the sun streaming in so wasn’t comfortable on Father’s Day Sunday roast was acceptable. Drinks a bit pricy. Busy day and service could have been better.
