The Botanist York Fabulous Festive Foodie #Review

The Botanist York Fabulous Festive Foodie Review: January 2020

Quaint and cosy, located within Stonegate, the Botanist York is the perfect place for family and friends to meet.

Escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy some fabulous food and drinks, as you unwind.

The décor is rustic and relaxed creating a beautiful and gorgeous setting for lunch or dinner.

Christmas in full swing, we loved the festive vibes and the charming Christmas tree.

Even though the place was super busy the staff including Christian, Richard and our super server Kyley all remained as friendly and efficient as always, a true test of professionalism and skill especially during the crazy Christmas season.

Equally impressive was the staff knowledge of allergens, without faff or fuss, providing both useful advice and alternatives which made our visit super smooth.

Yet more praise for the Botanist York for their extensive drinks range including The Northern Monk and a range of mocktails such as the Botanist for those of us that do not drink alcohol.

Now onto the yummy food, my plus one scoffed his salt and pepper chicken wings with sweet chilli sauce in record timing.

My deli board was an absolute triumph! Fresh and fabulous including aubergine caviar, quinoa, hummus, crudité and a salad with olives.

Marvellous mains included a beautiful Vegetable curry with rice packed with flavour along with an added side of chips.  Both the taste and presentation of the Fish and Chips was amaze with mushy peas, curry sauce and Tartar too.

The Botanist York Festive Foodie Review 7a

End on a sweet note with sorbet, ice cream or this scrummy bread and butter pudding with lashings of Nutella all washed down with a super sweet hot chocolate.

Super service, fabulous food and delightful drinks, Botanist York is definitely worth a visit.

Thank you for reading 😊

  1. The food there sounds mouthwateringly tempting. I’d love to try that vegi curry it looks nice and colourful. A hot choc is perfect to wash down dessert.

  7. This food looks incredible and the decor just charming. I was especially interested in reading about the allergy-issue. I have food allergies myself and find that server/venue knowledge and ability or willingness to accommodate vary hugely. If you can find a place that gets it, eating out can feel a lot better

  11. It’s always comforting to come across a place that understands and actively works with allergies like that without you having to explain yourself over and over again. That is a HUGE plus, in my opinion! If we’re ever in the area, my husband and I will have to make a point of checking it out.
