Visited with my family on Mother's Day and as before the service and food were excellent.Once we were seated the ladies received a free glass of prosecco which we thought was a lovely touch. Being Mother's Day it was very busy but we never had to wait long for our food,all meals arrived quickly and were fantastic. So well done... More

We eat in Alderley Edge regularly, and usually find that The Botanist looks much too busy for us; on this occasion it seemed quieter, so we went in. The decor is quirky and unusual, with an Olde Worlde almost Victorian feel, echoed in the menus and furnishings. Our waitress, Elle, was excellent, warm, friendly, confident, and knowledgeable about the food... More

I visited the branch in Alderley Edge - or, as the locals prefer to call it, Wilmslow - on a midweek evening, when it was packed. I found precious little evidence of anything horticultural. A sign outside invited guests to visit the secret garden, although the secret is so well kept that I was unable to find it. With its... More

I've been using this place on-and-off since it opened, and have never been disappointed. The staff are a credit to the place: efficient and polite, yet informally friendly. Weekends are very busy, but weekday evenings are a delight. They often have quite a talented and playful pianist towards the back of the room, which brings a great atmosphere to the... More

We were a party of 6. All but one of us had the deli boards, and another the chicken hanging kebab. This was the only reason I have given it a review of 4 rather than 5, there wasn't a lot of chicken and my hubby had specifically asked them not to put mushrooms on the kebab but they still... More

Decided to treat ourselves for a change and heard great reviews about this place. Had the calamari and scotch egg to start. Calamari was fab, as was the scotch egg. Went for the lamb kofta and pork kebabs, lamb was nice but the pork was our favourite. The service was brilliant and all very friendly. Only reason not to give... More

Travelled 30 minutes to get here after specifically booking a table for brunch only to find that the pancake kebabs they advertised all over the website, facebook and instagram pages weren't actually available for another 2 hours. Surely it would make sense to serve them in the mornings and if not then to specify before people travel. Then when I... More
