Having read the review on Square Meal and looked at the web site, we visited the Artichoke for the set lunch. Sadly, although the decor is appealing and the service friendly and professional ,the quality of cooking did not meet the required level. As starters, croquettes of oxtail were over floury, glutinous and lacked flavour (hard to do with oxtail) and the hot smoked salmon need to have been rather close to the fumes. Game casserole was small, lacked the richness of flavour that game should posess and appeared to be just the offcuts from the free range venison on the a la carte menu. The vegetarian option, a cheese souufle was hugely over cooked and should not have been released from the kitchen. The wine list is confidently priced and does not represent value. Every establishment can have a bad day and we may visit again if passing through but a first experience was not good.
