The Botanist, Alderley edge

Two of my favourite things are eating and spending time down on my allotment so when I spotted this quirky eatery in Alderley edge that has been designed to look like the inside of a potting shed my interest was high.

Checking out the menu on The Botanist website and reading some rave reviews had me picking up the phone immediately. 

Me and my other half was spending time with friends in Cheshire this weekend so we decided we would book Sunday lunch on our way home but after showing our friends where we were eating, they also loved the look of it so our booking for two was changed to four.

The Botanist really is a very interesting place to eat. Decor is rustic and film set like. Colours of pale wood and duck egg blue are beautiful, walls are adorned with pitchforks, spades, galvanised watering cans etc and display cabinets filled with plant pots and other gardening Paraphernalia made great talking points.

The food was fantastic my partner and I had the roast beef which was perfectly cooked pink and juicy just how we like it. The beef was accompanied with a giant yorkshire pud, roast potatoes, stuffing and a side dish of the most amazing tasting veg, carrot's, Parsnips and cabbage which had all been cooked in a garlic butter, the gravy nice and meaty in flavour. The little pot of horseradish cream was devine, punchy and nose stingily good.

Friend 1 had the roast chicken sunday lunch and raved about it, she also said it was the best gravy she had ever had in her whole life! While friend 2 chose the Botanist deli board  choosing four items from a list of 16, this was also served with Turkish flat bread. A clean platter confirmed her enjoyment.

Drinks menu is very good especially the cocktail menu which offered some very interesting combinations and twists on the classics. Staff where very attentive and friendly.
Overall we had a fantastic afternoon in a fantastic restaurant and one we will certainly recomend.
