About The Botany
A new arrival to Maryhill, The Botany is situated on the outskirts of the ever-expanding west end. One of the last remaining building of what was once a bustling high street and old tenement flats The Botany was born from its previous incarnation The Strathmore. Originally a working man’s pub dating back to 1877, the original brickwork still remains but is now accompanied by an enchanting glass house conservatory with an outside terrace. As you sit overlooking beautiful garden surroundings and parkland you will easily forget you are beside the bustle of Maryhill Road.
The name pays homage to a nearby sub-district of Maryhill, possibly so-called as the starting point for prisoners working on the Forth and Clyde canal as they made their journey to Botany Bay. Fear not though! The only journey you will be taking here is one of a mouthwatering culinary experience. The Botany’s name is also a nod to the nearby Botanical Gardens which helped to establish their vision of bringing a fresh, ingredient driven menu to Glasgow’s Maryhill food scene. That same philosophy is applied to their seasonal cocktail menus, extensive wine list, rotating bottle selection, quality gins and whisky.
The eclectic menu hosts a selection of small and large plates to appease every appetite. During the day you can tuck into fresh ciabatta sandwiches, a superfoods salad or the staff’s favourite; smoked chicken tacos. At night you can delve into their large plates section with choices like monkfish curry, pan fried pigeon breast or ribeye steak. There are brunch specials promoted every weekend from 11-3pm.

Our lovely local with a big heart and a stylish glasshouse . Quality gantry, good food and friendly atmosphere makes for a happy experience.
No complaints, food good and staff very attentive.
We had a really nice experience eating in the Glasshouse restaurant at The Botany - the food was great, the service amazing and it is great value for money. The menu is a bit on the short side at the moment but everything on there is excellent. We’ll definitely be coming back!
Lovely place with amazing food and friendly stuff. Highly recommended. We'd definitely go back there again. Thank you for making our dining experience so enjoyable 😊🙏
God food in a nice relexed setting, we really enjoyed it.
Great to see you re-opened. Usually friendly and efficient staff. Hope to see the restaurant a little busier and luckier in the coming weeks and months
Food and service were excellent. We were reassured that all safety measures were in place and felt very safe.
Great pleasant service great food
Thank you! Great service, delicious food and lovely relaxed atmosphere for a sunday lunch. Always get the Sunday Roast and it never disappoints 😋 will be back again soon!
Great to be back, with usual good food and friendly service.
I have eaten serval times before this is why I chose the botany for my anniversary dinner & drinks. My husband had the rib eye this was cooked perfectly...I ordered the fish and chips as I had ordered this before unfortunately on this occasion the batter was soggy & didn’t taste very nice at all! Not till the plates were removed did any staff member check to see if the food was ok! I explained to the male colleague that the batter was soggy and he said he would pass it on!! My husband didn’t want to waste the food so he ate the fish and I had a little of his steak! A little disappointing!
Me and my fiancée and dog (Dex) would like to say thanks to you’re great staff who were exceptional and couldn’t do enough for us.... Thanks!!
We came in to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was very quiet due to being the first day open after lockdown. Staff were really lovely, very engaging and helpful choosing wine. Food was good too, we will definitely be back. Thankyou
First time out for lunch since easing of lockdown. Felt very comfortable with staff being attentive, tables etc being cleaned after being vacated and an overall competent atmosphere. No hesitation is recommending a visit!
Had a lovely lunch. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
First outing for our family since lockdown , we were slightly nervous but we needn't have worried the set up was excellent. Good food and great service and a nice selection of gins we will be back.
My wife and I spent our 2 best lockdown hours here yesterday. The arrangements for distancing made us feel secure, yet the great service made us feel very welcome and relaxed. It was a really special time; The gorgeous outside space is fantastic. The experience was special, yet reminded us of normality. These guys have smashed it. Thanks very much.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon of drinks
Very welcoming staff and great value for money!
Nice place with friendly polite staff
Great to see this place open again.
All round nice
