Saturday was my first visit to the botanist and it will not be my last. From the outside it is appealing in an odd sort of Green house way, but as you go through the door you enter into a retro garden wonderland. It is quite odd, yet quirky and inspiring.
I was on a girl’s day out and as we all sat sipping, (well maybe not quite sipping it had been a hard week) our wine, we could not stop staring at the decor. It’s just so unique, like sitting in an upmarket potting shed, there was so much to look at.
The light were different in every room, my particular favourites were the ones made from a mini greenhouse and the spectacular chandeliers that were made out of a mixture of glasses and decanters, yet looked stunning.
It is a compendium of rooms all decorated differently to fit in with the secret garden theme; there is even a walkway of trees with twinkling lights. It really is such a different experience.
We were served quickly and all the servers were upbeat and friendly. We only had a light lunch; I can’t wait to go back as what we ate was so tasty, and uniquely served. I mean; have you ever seen garlic mushrooms served on a trowel before? Or cocktails served in jars?
We had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch at the Botanist and just loved the environment it is such a great unique space and an absolute must place to eat in Manchester.
