What used to be a boot factory is now a creative hub where people can eat, drink and let their hair down. Where live events and energetic brainstorms occur in the same room as stylish post-work drinks or a quick bite with a loved one, Artist Residence can be anything you want it to be. It's the perfect fit!

It's cool, it's chic and it's quirky; all the best things in life are here and it has the whole town talking. Artist Residence boasts an intriguing setup that leaves diners with endless options for where to spend their evening. A colourful kitchen-cum-bar sets the scene, playing with homey familiarities whilst also being terribly artsy in the process. Move further and the main dining room - a bountiful mix of engulfing sofas, pretty cushions, textures and patterns - awaits. And that's before you discover the snug little corners that centre around roaring fires and a glamorous, urban bar that gets the party going every Friday night. An energetic pod of fun, Artist Residence is designed to facilitate every kind of evening.

Now, you're going to need something to eat to keep those creative juices flowing! Enjoy your first cocktail of the evening alongside some crispy ham hock fritters, sticky chicken wings or some smoked mackerel pate, perfect for spreading on top of crisp bread.

Once you've tickled the tastebuds, go all in with some comfort food. We're talking buttermilk fried chicken burgers, pepperoni pizzas with an irresistible drizzle of spicy honey, succulent sirloin steak in a pool of garlic butter and caramelised cauliflower with a spritely lemon dressing. For bubbly evenings full of fun every day of the week, head to the boot factory. Now that's a sentence we never thought we'd say!
