Previously The Elusive Camel, it’s now been found and is a drinking bar only, now the upstairs dining and function rooms have closed. The main bar is formed from knocking through the two groundfloor rooms, and there is an enclosed sunken garden at the back reached by descending a small flight of steps. The TV screens were showing a music video, though the HiFi was playing 1960s music which made it all a bit disjointed. There are 2 gaming machines as well. The barman was rather surly and unwelcoming, while the majority of the younger customers were mainly fairly laid back, many of them bringing in food from the street market outside. The 3 handpumps were dispensing Hobgoblin and Jennings’s Cumberland, both very much over-gassed and in poor condition, plus Old Rosie. On pressure were Punk IPA, two from ABK, Shipyard IPA and the usual range of megakeg. There were also some cheap (and nasty) cocktails being sold. OK for a quick one if you won’t get the hump about the ale quality but there are better pubs around this area.

The Camel and Artichoke is long and thin with a bar midway down the left hand wall. There is seating at the front and also at the rear where there is also access to a surprisingly large enclosed beer garden. Further seating can be found upstairs. Plasma screens are located throughout and during my visit one evening before Christmas muted Sky Sports was being shown. Available from the bar was a premium draught selection and I counted four hand pumps. One of these was off leaving St Austell’s Trelawny, St Edmunds Golden Beer and Greene King’s IPA as the cask ale options. I found the service to be very friendly and would pop in again if passing.

The Camel & Artichoke is situated in the trendy looking lower marsh.
Once inside there was a small single oblong shaped room which ran to the rear,the serving bar was on the left side,the seating was a mix of bench seating and normal tables and chairs,there were 3 TVs showing sky sports,there was also some decent background music playing.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bombardier Gold which went down very well,the other beers were GK IPA / GK St Edmunds and St Austell Tribute.
I thought this was a decent pub to have a drink in.
