A Night With The Botanist

Morning Flowers!

I’m writing this whilst sat on the sofa with a facemask on, wrapped up in a blanket because I refuse to put the central heating on yet!

Every so often it hits me just how many doors blogging has opened for me and the amazing opportunities I’ve been given because of it. Recently I’ve been really lucky to be invited to a handful of exciting press nights and new openings. These are the best type of perks as it normally means I can go with my girls!

This week myself, Rebecca & Jess all headed off out to the opening of the HUGELY talked about The Botanist in West Bridgford.



The botanist can be found all over the country, but I’ve never actually made it to one despite hearing nothing but good things, so I was excited to see what they had to offer!

The restaurant area is made up in two parts – the first section is mainly smaller tables, two’s and fours, then the second section is more bench style seating for larger groups.

Now what night out with the girls doesn’t include cocktails? I’m a loyal Pornstar Martini kind of girl, but I do love something a bit different from time to time! Nothing says quirky more than drinking a cocktail, out of a plant pot, with a test tube coming out of it…that’s smoking!


West Bridgford is well known for being a food lovers dream. The Botanist doesn’t let you down, the menu is fantastic and you are totally spoilt for choice!

We opted for a few starters to share, my favourite being the pork crackling with the apple sauce being served in a little wheelbarrow! Then for mains had the most incredible hanging kebabs! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The food was second to none, I couldn’t fault it!

Outside they’ve added a beautiful terrace area, draped in fairy lights that will be simply stunning next summer, i’m already looking forward to spending sunny afternoons and long evenings on there with a bottle or 3 of prosecco!




What do I think of Botanist? It’s fantastic. It’s everything that West Bridgford needs, it’s upmarket, it’s smart, it’s quirky yet stylish. It’s perfect for date night, girls night, boys night..and even all the millennials that are slowly taking over WB!

I can’t wait to go back, I feel this is going to be top of my list everytime!
