“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

We've been here a few times. The portions are enormous! You certainly get your moneys worth. We had a very nice home made steak and ale pie with a selection of fresh veg - all perfectly cooked.
Pleasant staff and not too long to wait for the food.

“Charming 15th century pub/restaurant !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Spent a lovely couple of hours with a good friend here. We both just had starters, I rememered from a previous visit that the portions are very generous and we only wanted a smaller meal. My friend had the spare ribs which she loved and I had battered brie and salad, both delicious ! Wonderful attentive service. We decided to have our coffee outside in the lovely garden as it was a gorgeous sunny day. Highly recommended !!

“Proper pub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Visit the Artichoke often! Delicious food and large portions. Nothing fancy, but good, well cooked pub favourites. You will need to book a table for lunch on the weekends though.

“Fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed a meal at this pub after a bike ride finding it in chatham. Has a beer garden too so can eat out in the sun on a hot day. I had the fish and chips, was really nice and hand made. Would come again.
