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.
We were treated very well by the staff. We knew some of the staff from a previous restaurant which made us book. The food was really good, the menu choices were just enough to make selection interesting. We were celebrating an anniversary, and received a glass of bubbly, which was a nice touch. Excellent value for money as well. Congratulations to the owners for a good newish addition to Glasgow's go-to restaurants.
First time back since the refurb-was a favourite before but a well judged refit has helped enhance the experience
Lovely cosy setting food service fab
Lovely staff especially Manager..cool environment. Pleasure to have this place on my doorstep
Staff are always lovely. Also really like their own gins they make there always fab. Lovely meal as always.
Over priced and pretentious
This was our first time visiting. Myself and my cousin along with my toddler enjoyed a delicious lunch and felt very welcomed. I’m always very nervous when dining out with my lively 2 year old as he’s always on the go but his excitement wasn’t a problem at all. It was very quiet in the restaurant so that did help. I have already been recommending The Botany to family and friends.
Great pub with lovely staff. I love the cauliflower pakora and lentil Dahl x
Unfortunately last night was too noisy with large group of guys 🤦♀️ Could hardly talk to my friends. But good food 👍
Great place, but don’t tell everyone. Angus

Food was excellent,staff very pleasant, think that veg.should be included in the meal price rather than an extra.
A good experience overall in a surprisiningly nice setting. Wee bitit overpriced for a couple of the dishes we had. Wouldn't stop me going back or recommending though.
