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.
What a wonderful meal in a absolutely beautiful setting , can’t wait to return .
We had a great night in the Botany. The staff were lovely and very attentive. We had a large table and it seems the food went down really well (I would say the only disappointment being the creme brulée which was a bit on the eggy side) The place looks great, the atmosphere was friendly and cosy and the food very nice overall. We'll be back!
A slightly limited menu, but I’m assuming that this is because fresh ingredients are used. Food was good (burger and balmoral pie) well cooked (except the broccoli which was hard) and presented. Staff were attentive and pleasant. A good first visit, we’ll be back.
Botany is a lovely place to meet friends and relax,food is amazing and a great selection of drinks and love the cocktails,would highly recomend.
Lovely meal as usual never disappointed
The food was first rate-the crab and chilli linguine was just the right amount of sweetness and heat. Staff were spot on. Cheerful and attentive but not in your face. The music was a bit on the loud side causing the table to shout a bit. A bit chilly as well..maybe time try out the new wood burner?
Great food and smashin selection of beers, Gins and Whiskys.
Staff very friendly and the meals have been superb.
have been coming here more or less since it opened and only one occasion had a minor problem which was quickly resolved. Food always good choice and quality. Have also recommended to quite a few folk who've come back saying how much they enjoyed the place. Keep up the good work folks.
Had a small baby shower , nothing was an issue at all. Lovely pub, staff were great and food was amazing xx
Just a nice all round experience
Miss the old menu new menu lovely but family loved old my wee mum dad miss fish n chips
Excellent food in a friendly atmosphere
The food was fantastic, every starter, main and dessert loved. The service was great. Thank you. My only thing was, there was no service charge mentioned on menu! And does the service charge go to staff?.
The food is great, I particularly enjoy the soups and sandwiches. Besides the food, the restaurant interior is visually stunning and a pleasure just to sit in.
I was really disappointed with the new menu. Also our dishes were quite tasteless that we needed to add salt to both. Gutted I’m having to write this as I usually enjoy my visits to the Strathmore.
Absolutely love it. Ordered steak this time and cooked to perfection, opted for potatoes instead of chips and no problems for staff who were very attentive but not in your face, hope to be back soon. X
Meal was lovely very prompt service friendly staff
Food was lovely but unfortunately theee was a private birthday party taking place right beside us which spoilt our meall. The party was noisy and we were unable to hold a conversation. Our waitress was not very friendly either.
Fantastic food, Really friendly staff and great service as always. Can't recommend highly enough.
Nice food ; good atmosphere ; coffee could have been warmer! ..
Spent a very pleasant Saturday evening enjoying great food served by lovely staff. Enjoyed the open outlook and airy ambience and look forward to return visit
An Oasis of fine dining in Maryhill, so don't let the location influence your decision to go there. Everything is great, except drinks are a wee bit pricey; food prices are worth it though.
have been here quite a few times since the re-vamp and only ever had one small problem on a single occasion which was quickly sorted. Staff are great as is the food and nice place to stop in for a teatime drink. Everybody I've recommended the Strathie to says the same.
The Glassveggie burger is first class! Staff were very friendly and very helpful. The only downside for us was the lack of a parking space, which is not their fault.
