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.
SUPER food and really excellent service
I have been here a few times and the food has always been excellent, the service is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful and there is always a good atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Really great food, fantastic service, very welcoming to both dog and baby. And our dog got a free dinner! We’ll definitely be back soon.
Delicious meals, excellent atmosphere and friendly staff. Always a wonderful meal out.
Lovely sunday lunch. Very nice welcome and attentive service. Enjoyed the Mocktail and No Alcoholbeer Staff very friendly and food is good See you soon Mags and Dennis Hill
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.
Nice to be able to come back!
Always enjoy a trip to the botany! Wonderful food and atmosphere.
Consistently great food, service and value. Look forward to going back ASAP
Lovely lunch. Our dog made very welcome. We've been a few times now and will definitely be back.
Fabulous local eatery. Always reliable and consistent. Lovely food and nice ambience. Comfortable surroundings .
Very attractive restaurant, contemporary, bright and airy. Welcome log burner adds to comfort and atmosphere. Well priced delicious food.
Service was first class. We were quickly made welcome and shown to our table. Food and drink excellent. Would def recommend.
Staff were friendly and all following guidelines. The food was amazing. I had the steak and my mother in law had the sea bass. I will definitely be back.
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.
Fantastic service and very welcoming staff. Great place, cosy setting. Food and drink unrivalled, I am there at least twice a month.
Nice meal with friendly staff
We felt well cared for by your precautions and the staff were very pleasant.
Fantastic service and delicious food!
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.
A lovely bar and restaurant with an unexpectedly gorgeous glass house at the back. Food was delicious and we were servied by very friendly staff. We also received a 20% discount off our food which we weren't expecting! Will definitely be back.
Very well organised but in a calm atmosphere. Staff brilliant and service great. Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed lunch for the first time in motnths. Thx Botany
