Lincoln: An Evening at The Botanist Lincoln

The Botanist Lincoln

Press visit with Lincoln Bloggers UK

I've been to The Botanist in Leeds and London and have loved it both times (especially the cocktails!) so was super excited when I discovered that it was coming to Lincoln. I was even more excited when I was invited to their pre-launch press evening, along with the Lincoln Bloggers UK gang - a community I set up a few weeks ago and that is growing daily.

The Botanist Lincoln is in the Cornhill Quarter; an area which has undergone a huge amount of development and is now home to an Everyman Cinema (opens on Friday!), a Cosy Club and some lovely shops including Whistles and Hobbs. It's a gorgeous area and a great place to spend an evening.

The Botanist is just as beautiful as the other venues I've been too. Filled with plants, industrial style furniture and great lighting, it's a treat for the eyes and I was getting a lot of interior inspiration. My Mum and I were given a complimentary cocktail on arrival which was delicious, and we got to enjoy the downstairs bar area whilst our table was prepped.

We then went upstairs and were seated at our table where we could admire the views over the Cornhill Quarter. They have huge windows which mean there's lot of light in the day, and a lovely atmosphere as it gets darker outside. We then had to make the difficult decision of which food to go for (you can view all of their menus here). We settled upon the Vegan Board with sides of tenderstem broccoli and chunky chips. For dessert we chose the Caramelised Banana Sundae. The food hit the spot and the only part that we left was the Bang Bang cauliflower which was part of the Vegan Board and too spicy for our mild tastebuds!

Covid-wise, we felt very safe; there were hand sanitiser stations at the entrance to both floors and we were asked to sanitise as we entered, all of the staff were wearing masks and the tables were well spaced. It was obviously something that everyone was (quite rightly) very conscious of and made for it to feel very safe.

We had a really lovely evening. It was so nice to get dressed up and wear a full face of make-up and we had no complaints at all. We will definitely be back soon!

The Botanist in Lincoln opens officially on Tuesday 18th August and you can find out more on their website here
