Botanist Restaurant, Birmingham
The bustling business centre of the Colmore District in Birmingham is about to receive a new boutique bar in the form of The Botanist.
The new haunt will see craft beers and ales along with rotisserie inspired gastro grub we’d find at the finest delis. Not to mention incredibly cool looking cocktails from watering cans!
We can expect all the usual starters and nibbles including pork crackling, home made Scotch eggs as well as Welsh rarebit fondue. For mains there are burgers and hanging kebabs, plus a menu of “home comforts”, including bangers and mash, fish and chips, and steak and ale pie. Yum!
The drinks menu lists martinis and long cocktails as well as the selection of watering cans for up to four people to share. ‘Up to’ the key phrasing we think!
The 5,000 sq ft Cheltenham House in Temple Street is the setting for this trendy haunt after a £1.2million revamped that will see The Botanist open it’s doors on the 9th March.
Julian Rose-Gibbs, formerly of The Victoria on John Bright Street, who has been appointed general manager at The Botanist, said, “The location in Cheltenham House on Temple Street is perfectly situated to benefit those working, living and visiting the city and we can’t wait to add to the exciting mix of leisure and hospitality in the area.”
The Botanist in Birmingham will be the sixth Botanist in the country with boutique bars already established in Leeds, Alderley Edge, Newcastle, Chester and Manchester. It’s high end but the food looks amazing as does the decor. We think this might be the perfect place to start your weekend. Plus, those watering cans looks awesome!
