About Wild Artichokes
Wild Artichokes is a food and event company based in Kingsbridge, passionate about good food and hospitality. We set out to create unforgettable dining experiences wherever we are.
Our business holds dining events in and around the South Hams, provides catering and organisation for weddings and events, food for private dining at home and 'how to' at our cookery demonstrations. All this and much more, in fact any other fun stuff that involves food and community.
Our dining events are at the heart of the business here at WAHQ in Kingsbridge. They are built on the foundation of feasting – sharing food and large tables with other diners (strangers that become friends). WAHQ is small, cosy and often noisy with the chatter of diners which all adds to the atmosphere.
You can expect a seasonal set menu with a variety of dishes generous in flavour, brought to your table to share with fellow diners. We create interesting menus using ingredients and dishes that you might not normally use at home, try at other dining venues or even like. We have converted many a beetroot hater!
Top Tip: Come hungry. Elasticated waistbands recommended. Be prepared for a dining experience with a difference.
Cannot thank you enough for an amazing evening on Saturday. I was with a group of international friends and they were amazed and astounded by the delicious food and amazing dining concept that you have created! I wish you all the very best during the forthcoming challenging times ahead. We will most certainly be back! Any chance of sharing some of those fab recipes?
As always, the food was absolutely delicious. I recommend you eat sparingly before you go and pace yourself when the dishes start arriving as the the food is plentiful and too tasty to resist! Sam is a wonderful host and took great care of us throughout the evening. A truly unique dining experience.
A lovely evening, thank you Sam.
Brilliant as always!
Always an adventure, lovely exciting menus. The Thai feast was amazing, lots of lovely tasters. A real treat.
This was our second visit and we didn’t enjoy the Thai evening as much as the previous predominately veggie menu.
We had another fabulous evening with amazing food. Thank you x
Fantastic evening, amazing food.
We had a very enjoyable evening. Great food and pleasant company. It was a delight to be able to try so many different dishes. We enjoyed them all and will definitely be back.
A fabulous find! Delicious food and incredible value. We will be back!
Thankyou soooo much for another amazing evening. Fabulous food, fabulous service and fabulous people. We bought our Neice and her boyfriend with us for their first WA experience and they rated you 10 out of 10 :-) see you soon.
We have been eating out on the restaurant scene of the South Hams for many years, and can honestly say that there is no better place to eat than Wild Artichokes. The setup of the sharing menu, the way in which you’re encouraged to mingle with new people, the absolutely delicious food, the relaxed atmosphere, the incredibly welcoming service.....the list is endless. It’s just an epic evening out and the value for money - given the quality of the food and service - is incredible. Highly, highly recommend.
Amazing food and service as always!!
Really lovely lunch - all completely perfect . We are proper foodies - this was all top draw. Thank you
Our first time with you and a wonderful experience. A cosy and warm atmosphere. The food was beautifully created and cooked with unusual tastes and delights. And the generous desserts allowed us to enjoy the whole range on offer! Thank you. We shall hope to see you again! Felicity and Jonathan
I always enjoy my visits to WA and the service is always first class. The previous times I’ve visited the food has been superb, full of flavour and a real joy. However this visit fell below those very high standards for me, as the food was not as I would have liked. Still ‘excellent’ but not ‘superb’.
Fantastic food, great service and incredible value for money!
We love coming to dine with you. Always something different, but always amazing. The only criticism would be that it gets so noisy some of us can’t hear.
A wonderful dining experience,
Amazed at how good the food always is,you all work so incredibly hard to provide such an amazingly briliant meal.the quality of the food the presentation and service were of the highest stadard Thank you
Lovely tastes and good service. We'll be back!
Thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes presented to us. Lovely atmosphere and friendly hostess who informed us of each dish as it was served. Recommend highly and will be returning as often as possible!
Faultless in all respects. Creative & wonderfully tasty food. Shared table with total strangers who were great fun.
Really enjoyed having a great variety of food. All delicious and every course was a surprise and a delight. It was very welcoming and enjoyed the whole evening! This was our third visit and won’t be our last.
Always a delight to visit WA - great atmosphere , love the surprise menus - a lovely treat with friends.
