Great place and a quirky atmosphere. Food is delicious and good value for money. Out of norm, a bit pricey, one to try if you want to try somewhere different.

Been here a number of times for food and cocktails. The menu is varied and lots of dishes have a botanical influence for instance the pate in a plant pot starter. The hanging kebabs are really what the botanist pride themselves on with chicken, lamb, beef and a veg option of your choosing. The cocktails are delicious but hardly cheap and be prepared to fight your way to the bar on the busier nights.

This place is always buzzing and full of atmosphere. With live music, a huge range of great (and original) cocktails and a decent selection of food it's a great spot. It can be a little too crowded sometimes and service in restaurant can be a little slow on some occasions but made up for by how friendly the staff are.
