The Botanist

Restaurant photo

Located at the bottom of Trinity, The Botanist has a sunken outside seating area with plenty of heaters, as well as an extensive inside area. The high tables and swivel seating made the outside tables a little uncomfortable to sit at, but it was a nice day and we wanted to enjoy the fresh air.

The interior is beautifully decorated with wood panelling and wall boxes containing plants. The staff were friendly and worked as a pair to take my food order and get my drinks at the same time. I was prompted to add a gratuity despite going to the bar to order my food though, which I thought was a bit rich.

Their Sunday Roast menu comes with one of two meats - beef or chicken - as well as a Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, potatoes and vegetables. My food arrived on a decorative plate, although my rule of thumb is if I can still see the plate through the gravy, the gravy is took weak, and unfortunately I could.

The chicken was OK but did not possess the powerful flavour that I have experienced from other Sunday roasts.

Ultimately, I would not come back here for Sunday lunch. They are just not a tasty as their competitors and you only have a choice of two meats. The rest of their menu might be worth trying though. Elina had nothing but good things to say about her avocado and bacon salad.
