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.

Fantastic Sunday roast! Delicious food and super service. Will be back again! Would also like to commend front of house and kitchen staff on how they dealt with a member of the left who has allergies, absolutely how it should be done.

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!!!!

Service was a bit slow on Sunday night. Took a while for our food to arrive. Other than that, can’t fault it.
