The Spring Menu at The Botanist Newcastle

Spring has sprung, despite the odd snow shower. But come a new season there comes a new menu. Matty and I popped in for lunch before he flew back to work for the next few months. 

To kick start things I had a cocktail, Strawberry and elderflower bellini £7.25. A delicious mix of strawberry, elderflower and prosecco. I enjoyed sipping the fruity cocktails while people watching over Monument. The views from the window seats at The Botanist really are the best. 

Then my attention came to the food. 

For starter, Matty and I shared our favourite. We ordered this on our second date. Whole baked Camembert baked in garlic and rosemary sourdough with braeburn apple and smoked apple ketchup £12.95. 

Is there anything more delicious than baked camembert? This was absolutely divine, the bread ripped perfectly and was so garlicky. I'd quite happily order this just for myself! 

Matty was sure he wanted a burger and that is what he ordered. 

Beef burger with tomato and shallot dressing, served with vine tomatoes, red onion and rocket £10.95 with added bacon £1.25 and Lancashire cheese £1.25. The burger came with salt and pepper French fries. 

Matty truly enjoyed his burger and he managed to spill half of the contents down his jumper. 

I was really impressed with how many veggie options were on the new Botanist menu. I was spoilt for choice. I went for the Butternut squash, Goat's cheese and mushroom pie £11.75 served with homemade vegetable gravy, mushy peas, spring onion mash or chips. 

I went for mash, as I could steal a few of Matty's chips. It was the best pie I've eaten since I cut meat out of my diet. Even thinking about it is making me want to rush back and order it again. 

At this point pudding really did seems like a bit of a challenge. While we were looking at the menu we decided to take 10 minutes out and just do some people watching from the spectacular view over Newcastle that The Botanist offers. 

Homemade banana doughnuts, with salted caramel sauce and a peanut milkshake £5.75. The doughnuts were absolutely delicious and I'm so glad I managed to find room for them. The only let down was that the milkshake was warm, which was a shame. 

Matty who was positively stuffed at this point went for raspberry sorbet £4.50, which was a taste sensation and I did get rather jealous of his choice. 

The service at The Botanist was wonderful and all the staff were friendly and inviting. We left feeling so full and quite literally rolled home and I didn't eat again until breakfast the next day. 

I can't wait to go back and indulge in the camembert and cocktails again!
