MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Artichoke is located in a 16C red-brick house set at the centre of a picturesque town. It’s a bijou place, with a heavily timbered interior and a contemporary, design-led style. The narrow beamed main room leads through to a modern Scandic-style extension with a semi-open kitchen and glass screens etched with branches – and neutral shades give it a laid back, ‘natural’ feel. Self-taught chef-owner Laurie Gear has completed ‘stages’ at The Fat Duck and Noma, and brings his experiences together in an array of menus. Accomplished modern British dishes are confidently prepared and well-measured flavour combinations have an understated complexity. The English larder is kept to the fore: lamb is reared locally, venison is from the Woburn Estate and seafood from Brixham is a particular highlight. Relaxed, super-friendly service completes the picture.
