With a story that starts almost 700 years ago, The Artichoke pub in Chartham isn’t short on character. It’s everything you’d expect from such a historic building - with old oak beams, cosy corners and exposed brickwork providing the backdrop to fabulous food and drink.

There’s even an old well protruding through the floor - now topped with glass to form a very special dining table, and the best seat in the house.

Outside, hanging baskets greet your arrival in summer, showcasing the old timber-framed pub in all its glory. There’s a lovely garden area too, perfect for a pint or two in the sun after enjoying the Chartham circular walk.

And if our beer tastes extra special, perhaps it’s because The Artichoke laid the foundations for the brewery at which it’s brewed! Back in the 1650s, The Artichoke was owned by Richard Marsh, who turned the place into a brew house before going on to found the Shepherd Neame brewery in nearby Faversham

Why not pay us a visit and sample a little drop of British brewing history…
