The Artichoke, Bristol, Gloucestershire

 


 
Near St.Mary-on-the-Quay the Artichoke was demolished for the Colston Centre in April 1970. The entrance to the first floor bar was reached via St.Augustine’s Steps at the side of the pub. A pub just up the road in Lewin’s Mead now bears the name.

Name Dates Comments
Joy Gibson 1968/1969 Myself and my ex husband were Managers/licensee of this pub. I think it was in 1968. We stayed only a short time somewhere between 3 and 6 months. The place was severely haunted ! Our names were Barry and Joy Blockley.
We moved on to Manage/licensee of The Griffin Inn at Bridgeyate from a Tennant. At this time circa 1968/69 a livestock market was held behind the pub each week.
