Went for a mid week family treat as seen excellent reviews and fancied something quirky. The decor is interesting, although minus the flora and forna was like weatherspoons as per the waiter comments - we serve average pub grub and your paying for the experience. Still not sure what the experience was? Food was ok. We had the hanging kebabs which were average quality and over priced. Drinks were the best part of the night. So if you want over priced average food but in a quirky environment then it's worth a visit!

Me and the girls visited The Botanist on Saturday afternoon for a couple of cocktails whilst out in Sheffield for the afternoon and I seriously believe this is one of the best cocktail bars and restaurants in Sheffield. The service was fabulous and the cocktails were even better, we'll be back soon :-)

This is a very special setup for a restaurant. On top of that we were completely satisfied with our dishes and service. Will come back for other type of meals.
