Review of The Botanist

The Botanist
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $10 - $23
Description: It started with a seed, an idea to create a secret garden of food and drink. A place where antiquities and trinkets hang from the walls, and resident botanists craft unusual concoctions. Some arrive for the live music, some for the conversation; but here at The Botanist, all can enjoy a wondrous occasion...

We, as a group of 8, popped into the Botanist for a couple of drinks before making the short walk over to Trent Bridge for the cricket. Upon arrival we were made to feel welcome, and the bar lady knew her facts when it came to Rob needing a gluten free beer, he was impressed. So much so in fact that after the cricket we popped in for a mix of beers and cocktails, we even got shown the bar nibbles menu, which we decided to try. They are BIG for nibbles, not a complaint, but very tasty, especially the onion petals. All in all lovely venue, great drinks and knowledgable staff, plus only a 3/4 minute walk to the cricket, see you for the World Cup!

So I have been to a few other Botanist restaurants and have always been very impressed with everything, however, this Botanist was awful in comparison.

We booked a table for 4pm and were not asked if we wanted to order drinks for 45 minutes. We then waited another 15 minutes before anyone asked us if we were ready to order food. We had to ask where the drinks were after 20 minutes as they had still not arrived and we had to ask twice to see the children's menu. It was an hour before we had even managed to order any food.

The cocktail that was ordered had very little, if any, alcohol in it, which is not what you expect when paying £8 for one drink. There was nothing special about it and basically just tasted like pineapple juice.

The food, when it eventually came out, was lovely, which is why I have given two stars instead of 1. The service, however, was dire! I'm afraid my family and I will not be returning to this Botanist.

Visited The Botanist today and had a wonderful time! The cocktails were made beautifully (looked great on my instagram) and tasted lovely! I was also blown away by the outstanding and very friendly service provided by the guys at the bar (Callum, Will and Aid). Thanks so much and will definitely be back again soon!
