'Following its spectacular comeback in 2010, The Artichoke has stepped up yet another notch by taking over the building next door, adding an open-to-view kitchen & refining its confident, big-city approach to things '

Square Meal 2012

Over the past seven years and during his enforced time out, Laurie has sourced a wonderful array of passionate suppliers. It has always been our mission to seek out the best produce that the British Isles have to offer and Laurie has been delighted to discover a collection of artisan producers right on our doorstep, many within the Chilterns.

With the support of these producers and others who are slightly further afield, Laurie and his team are able to create the inspired cuisine served at the Artichoke.
