the building

Please, be mindful that Artichoke is located in a Grade 2 Listed Timber Framed Building therefore in places our beams can be low and our floors slightly uneven, plus there are also steps and stairways.

We would advise consideration for footwear for your visit and stiletto heels are not recommended.
