Eaten here before with family members who are coeliac. They advertise food with gluten free options, the only ones being salads or curry. Chips stated as gluten free but fried in general friers so cross contamination. Have been advised previously as gluten free. Spoke to waitress and manager who didn't appear to have a great understanding of coeliac . We... More

Been meaning to try this place out for ages, heard lots of rave reviews from friends. We went for Sunday roast; wife and I both had roast beef, perfectly pink, hot plates, great veg with roasties and gravy to die for! The restaurant itself has a wonderful friendly and welcoming vibe, with a comforting warm decor, it's spot on in... More

We visited on the Saturday the 26th with my mates. We came in and were welcomed by the hostess who was very sweet. We sat down straight away and we got told the server would be over in a couple of minutes. The waitress sarah came over. Bubbly and smiley girl made us feel at home straight away. She recommended...

Called in at 4pm Saturday with two friends as a special treat. The food and service are second to none, from the menu through to the final bill we enjoyed every part of the experience. Lovely little touches combined with superb food and service make it a must.

Have to say a disappointing trip to this establishment. Ordered the gambas pil pil starter and when it turned up it wasn't cooked through with prawns still looking grey. Waiter was apologetic and immediately took it away and brought a new dish. This time it was cooked but the food still wasn't hot. For the main course my husband and... More

We didn't know the area and felt very lucky to have stumbled upon The Botanist. The food was very good indeed but the cheerful, friendly service was exceptional. I would have preferred my dinner on a plate rather than a seed tray but it still tasted great.

Wow! A meal to die for, really spoilt my choice for when I go back again as I don't know if anything else on the menu can match it, unbelievably tasty

I regularly go to the Botanist and have been to many different locations and I have to say this restaurant was the most disappointing of the franchise. Unfortunately our table got a bit forgotten and service was slow but pleasant. When I booked the table for 7:15pm I was told they would need the table back for 9:15pm but we... More
