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.
