There’s a Brunch and Pub Menu from 11:00am-2:30pm Thursday to Saturday, a Pub and  A La Carte menu from 5:30pm-9:30pm Tuesday to Saturday, and on Sundays roast is served from 12:00-3:00pm.

So, if you’ve skipped breakfast get down to Artichoke for brunch; choose from the likes of a Full English, Pork belly roll, Salmon sourdough and Eggs Benedict. The Pub menu has Tapas and nibbles to start, moving onto mains of Honey glazed half chicken, BBQ baby black ribs and Handcut Parapdelle, as well as dry aged steaks, burgers,and pizzas. Go for A La Carte dining and you might start with Duck liver pate, Beetroot cured salmon or Slow cooked octopus, before tucking into mains of Beef Wellington, Pan fried cod, Rump of lamb, or Cote de Bouef. Sunday Roast is a choice of Pork belly or Slow roasted beef, Caramelised turkey breast, Sea bream and vegetarian/vegan options. It’s all made with passion and creativity, using fresh, quality ingredients sourced as locally as possible.
