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 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!

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!

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!

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.
