“Bringing people back together this Christmas!”

With everything that’s going on in the world, we want to make planning your Christmas Celebrations as easy and flexible as possible. Our fabulous festive menu is being served from Thursday 3rd December to Monday 28th December. You never know our best-laid plans may have to change! 

So with that in mind, we bid a festive farewell to deposits, set menus and the need for you to complete a pre-order. We have packed this Festive Seasons menu full of festive favourites so you can choose a full Christmas Feast or maybe just a salad! After all, you may visit more than once and you don’t want Christmas dinner every time do you? 

Our Traditional Christmas Roasts will be available every day as well as other great Winter plates, so you can indulge in whatever tickles your fancy. All you need to do is book your table and then just order on the day! Simples!

No deposits, No pre-orders, No Hassle…Just Joy!

At this time we are taking bookings for tables of up to 6 guests from mixed households and if the Government guidelines change then we will keep you updated on how that impacts your visit. You can book your table below or just give us a call on 01923 778677

So yes, things may be a little different this year but our pub will remain a haven of warm welcomes and hospitality. A place of laughter & celebration. The Artichoke is always a magical place at Christmas time and this year will be no different!

Bookings

At this moment we’re encouraging bookings only, even just for a drink! Please be aware that bookings cannot exceed a table size of 6 people. These 6 people including children may be from multiple households.

Please note, you can book our heated outside tables but with the British weather what it is, you may still want to wear a warm jacket!
