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.
Had a lovely steak ,great atmosphere,friendly staff,would really recomend the botany,cosy,comfy,and very friendly 😊
I had monk fish curry, there was 2 pieces of monk fish and one prawn @£15.50! There was 3 of us had the same and we all found the portions were too small. 2 friends had the super salad, with 6 ingredients and 2 of the ingredients were missing! On bring this to the staffs attention, a separate bowl came with one of the missing ingredients, but the other one is still missing! But the atmosphere and the staff were fantastic. I will definitely give it another go. ps I dont like dogs in a restaurant though!!!!
Food was amazing - everybody loved it! Staff are very helpful and polite and kept on top of our drinks bill even after the restaurant got busier. Can't thank you all enough :)
Quick friendly service with well presented food
Excellent value and great pub
Service was a bit slow on Sunday night. Took a while for our food to arrive. Other than that, can’t fault it.
Beautiful setting. Staff really attentative and food was lovely
Enjoyed our lunch. Nice atmosphere n particularly liked the log burner. Food was good. My chicken was very tender. Will definitely be back.
Really liked the botany. Cosy beautiful setting, nice atmosphere, very happy feel because of friendly, observant staff. Will make this our local!
We aways enjoyed our visits to this restaurant when it was the Strathmore so we were delighted to find on our first visit since it became the Botany that the service, food & welcome remain great. Our next visit is already booked!
Excellent service and food lovely surroundings too .. will go back
Really nice place!
Fantastic and friendly staff and I would definitely come here to eat again! Brilliant food and lovely, calming atmosphere, great staff who were always there to help without being intrusive. Thank you!
Really chilled,relaxed atmosphere.Very cosy.Meal was lovely,loved the log burner.Staff was great.x
Lovely restaurant and great value for money definitely worth a visit
Overall, everything was very good and we would recommend the Botany as a place to go for food or a drink. The staff were excellent, very friendly and professional. One small thing is to have some form of potatoes offered with some of the mains where potatoes do not come with the meal or offer potatoes as a side, as not everyone eats chips (the only potatoes on the menu as sides were handcut chips or skinny fries with truffle oil). Having some variation of potatoes would be good.
Excellent service from knowledgeable staff. Food was delicious.
we had the set menu and the cull and skink and risotto were the best choices dissaoointed that the tuna was finished at 8pm! monkfish skewer had two tiny bits of monkfish! sticky toffe was dry but choc mousse and creme brulee were both delish 7.5 overall out of 10 pedro? was a great server very attentive and professional so service 9 out of 10 atmosphere - hated the naff plastic ikea plant and planter could do much better and no salt pepper grinders on each tble ? thats just lazy sorry! the room was pretty nice very on trend mix of chairs but there was a glut of one type of dining chair in one area weird?! will come again but maybe brunch or lunch im sure you will iron out the teething problems! good luck
Really lovely venue and the food is really amazing! So pleased and I love the change from the Strathmore. Space is used far better and seems cosy :)
Overall just OK. The service was good but the food wasn’t great. Overpriced for what it is.
Great food and a great atmosphere. All at a very reasonable price.
Love this bar, especially the conservatory at the back. Ignore what daily record columnist wrote yesterday and try it for yourself
Enjoyed the food, staff were friendly an helpful, loved the environment it was comfortable and cosy. It was was delightful to eat and drink in, will definitely be back.
Food and staff were excellent. Only thing I would change would be to lower the volume of the music, but that’s just my preference
