Why we love… The Botanist

While we can’t be there in person, we thought we would take a moment to consider what makes each and every one of our Milsom Place family special…

First up, is our botanical-based restaurant and cocktail bar,
The Botanist Bath.

A concept like no other, The Botanist Bath offers a selection of botanical cocktails, craft beers and ales, Champagne and wine with food inspired by the deli, rotisserie and BBQ.

Housed in the historical Octagon Chapel, a fashionable, eighteenth-century church which counts Jane Austen amongst its distinguished visitors, the distinctive architecture of the space with its impressive domed, full-height central atrium and gallery level seating makes for a spectacular backdrop to dinner and cocktails in the heart of Bath!

The collection of botanical cocktails, inspired by resident botanists’ travels across the globe has something for everyone. Long drinks for you to savour their flavour, small and mighty shorts and spritzes, shaken and stirred martinis (although no suit required to enjoy these botanical sippers!) and sharers for you to sip, savour and share with friends.

And when you’ve worked up an appetite, The Botanist’s tempting menu delivers every time. Choose from their deli boards to share with friends, classic home comforts and pies or opt for burgers and steaks from the grill. But for the ultimate Botanist experience, don’t miss their famous hanging kebabs, dripping with flavour and all served seasoned chips…

The Botanist Bath hanging kebabs

In their own words “It started with a seed, an idea to create a secret garden of food and drink. A place where antiquities and trinkets hang from the walls, and resident botanists craft unusual concoctions. Some arrive for the live music, some for the conversation; but here at The Botanist, all can enjoy a wondrous occasion…
