The Botanist is an elegant restaurant and bar on Sloane Square, within a two-minute walk of the tube station. Drawing on influences from far and wide yet remaining quintessentially British, this is a classy affair well suited to a variety of occasions.
The modern interior provides a comfortable and relaxing space in which to enjoy a meal. You can come for a hearty breakfast from 8am on weekdays, and the flow of quality food continues as the day wears on. There's a strong seafood contingent at The Botanist, with a choice of steaks and chicken dishes also jumping off the page. The Botanist is there for those prone to some brunch on a Saturday, with roast beef and lamb with all the trimmings served on Sunday.
You could just come for some after-work refreshment, of course. The wine list is international, there's unique cocktails (try the Sloane Ranger) and a choice of beers if you're after a crisp pint. It's well suited to a chic cocktail and canape reception, indulgent dinner and - with their exclusive discounts for those going to the theatre at Cadogan Hall - a shoo-in for the pre-theatre crowd.

A word from the chef:
Carefully comprised seafood and steak headline the show at The Botanist, with the lovely brunch and Sunday roast options keeping punters sweet at the weekend. Try the indulgent kilo of Shetland mussels at £17.50, or tuck in to the Herdwick lamb rump with baby beetroot and more at £24.
Chelsea is more than just a destination, it's something of a lifestyle; and from my visit this weekend, an inherently luxe one at that. Epitomising everything that this overtly ostentatious area has to boast, there's one dining destination that...

Such a great venue for a dinner and a cocktail with your girl firends (they do a great brunch for the hangover afterwards too!)
I love The Botanist, it does really good food and it's the sort of place you can chill with a beer after work. It also pulls in the crowds later on in the evening and creates a great atmosphere.
