Artichoke: it’s a cafe, it’s a bar, it’s a bistro. This tagline, while seemingly broad in scope, actually describes Artichoke quite well. This is a cozy, more intimate locale where you can stop in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and order a bowl of Scotsman’s porridge with cinnamon, or a Lamb Henry with Marmite potatoes. They also offer many local ales, lagers, beers, wines, and an assortment of cocktails. Artichoke makes a point of supporting local suppliers, breweries, and businesses, and for that reason alone a quick stop (or perhaps a delayed stay?) is definitely worth your time.
Steam Mill St
Chester, CH3 5AN
