The Artichoke in Norwich this year celebrates its 90th birthday. Built in 1932 by R G Carter, it was one of a series of Arts and Crafts style public houses completed, designed by architects Buckingham & Berry.

What is special about this pub for brewery Youngs, Crawshay and Youngs, is that now in its 90th year, it is still used for the same purpose it was built for all those years ago, which the landlord plans to toast with a bbq celebration later this summer.

The top image is from the 1930’s with a policeman directing traffic, replaced by traffic lights in later years, as seen in the lower image taken in 2022. Amazing to see the pub really has stood the test of time!
