Went for dinner here on a Saturday night and it was a great evening! The food was really lovely and the famous hanging kebabs were delicious! Our waitress was so attentive and talkative and live music started at 9pm. The restaurant has a really lovely atmosohere! I can't wait to go back here and try the hallumi kebab!

We went here on the off chance as we could not get into The Ivy. We waited at the bar for a while, which was fine, and staff were fantastic and kept us informed.

The seating area is really nice, a different type of layout to normal which works quite well centred around a large fireplace (although it does look gas fired but don't let that put you off).

The food was really good, can't fault it. Alcoholic choice also great and staff were amazing, all so helpful.

This is a great spot, and a worthy substitute for The Ivy around the corner. Good for famalies and price is quite good too. We will be back.

Came in for a quick drink, and was reccomend a zombie with a twist by the bar tender! He made me a majestic and easily drinkable zombie with a fine range of Legendario rum as a twist! Highly enjoyable time thanks to Mr James Purcell-Lacy

Very small pieces of roast meat, and what we had was chewy and very fatty.
We did complain and it was dealt with very well, Given two puddings as a thank you.
Which we appreciated. But went there for a Sunday Roast so very disappointed.

First visit to The Botanist yesterday and it was by far one of the best meals I have had!! Really enjoyed my roast and so did my other family members, the staff were polite and efficient and made the atmosphere of the restaurant relaxing. Definitely coming here again! :)))
