The innovative pub brand draws inspiration from all things botanical, with a cocktail menu boasting over 45 creations, many with a plant-based twist. Sitting alongside its impressive offer of world famous beers and ales, the extensive cocktail offer sees fresh fruit, herbs and spirits expertly mixed and muddled to deliver an array of unique infusions.

Customers can expect botanical twist on classic favourites, such as Rhubarb and Gin Old Fashioned or a Green Pepper and Grapefruit Daiquiri.

The food menu is no less of a marvel, with home comforts such as Prawn and Chicken Gumbo sitting alongside delicious deli boards and The Botanist’s famous hanging kebabs.

The atmospheric surroundings will be brought to life with regular live music, with the cosy, homely venue playing host to high-energy evening gigs, as well as chilled out Sunday afternoon sessions.
