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.

Ate here on Saturday afternoon. This is our local and not our fist time. The quality and choice of food at the Botany is very good. They have increased their menu and there is something for all tastes. As we are in Tier 3 they are open between 12-6pm, there’s no alcohol but they have created some delicious mocktails. I recommend the Raspberry Faiquiri . Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food.

Food was good, the staff lovely, however I feel it was a bit overpriced especially for lunch. Maybe some other options that were not so pricey especially for lunch.

Food was of a very high quality and portion size was plentiful. Staff were very friendly, professional and attentive. Social distancing rules very clearly marked out and restaurant was extremely clean. Great cocktails too at very reasonable prices. Great beer garden too where we enjoyed a drink after our meal. Will definitely return!

As always, great service and food and unbeatable atmosphere. This is our favourite place to go, and would prefer this cosy spot over most west end places. The food is always of the highest quality and the creative menu and daily specials are a delight.
