Yes, I’ve blogged sbout this place before, but you know, it’s really worth highlighting.
It’s a chain, there’s one closer to me in Alderley Edge and there is one soon to open in Knutsford, whoop! Unlike other chains however, the food is really rather good!
Food: I enjoyed the halloumi Kebab with the giant cous cous and chips. Totally tasty and a decent size portion
Price: No complaints. £12 for a main course is cheap in my book
Drink: Damn good cocktails. I had the passion fruit cocktail which could have kept me say there all day.
Ambiance: Here lies the winning element. This place has a great vibe, the decor is relaxed but utterly cool and the music, typically live and acoustic, is a perfect background buzz.
I have been to the Botanist before in Alderly Edge and it has always been great.
I have been to the one in Chester twice now and both times I have to say that the service has been slow, slow, slow! We went yesterday, it was quite empty and so slow, was not excusable!
However the food did not let me down. This time I had the chicken and chorizo pie. It was creamy, a tad spicy and throughly enjoyable. I would certainly revommend!
It also has a nice atmosphere in here, relaxed and comfortable plus slightly quirky.
