See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Beautiful 15th century half-timbered former hall house, the exterior carefully restored by Shepherd Neame. Interesting half-timbering in the Ladies. There is a well in the dining room and a small garden at the rear. The Artichoke is a few yards from the end of the Great Stour Way, a pleasant 3-mile cycle and walking path between Canterbury and Chartham. Steak and "brontosaurus ribs" are a Saturday night special. There is a quiz on the first Thursday of each month
