The Botanist launches Valentine’s Day date night menu made up of sharing dishes for two

A proper indulgent feast for couples.

The Botanist has launched a special date night menu that’s made up entirely of sharing dishes for two people.

And it’s all to celebrate Valentine’s Day, of course.

With the international day of love right around the corner now, it only seems right that The Botanist – a chain that’s been known for its imaginative food and drink creations for quite some time now – would be one to launch an impressive array of dishes for those looking to celebrate the special day with some proper good comfort food.

The popular chain – which has a number of restaurants in Greater Manchester, and across the North West region – says its Valentine’s menu has been designed for “savouring the moment together”.

This is probably why all the dishes on the one-day-only lineup is especially for two people.


Available to tuck into only on Valentine’s Day (Wednesday 14 February) itself, couples can begin their night with a refreshing strawberry and elderflower mojito on their arrival, followed by a whole melted camembert baked in a sourdough loaf and accompanied by a sweet onion marmalade and crispy garlic croutons to start.  

Of course, Valentine’s Day at The Botanist wouldn’t be complete without those three little words… ‘famous hanging kebabs’.


For thee main course, the sharing kebab includes either chicken, lamb kofta, and Thai red prawn, or the vegetarian option of crispy halloumi, teriyaki mushroom, and vegan meatball, on a triple-skewer rack, and served with coleslaw, houmous, and flatbread.

Then, to finish things off and satisfy those sugar cravings is The Botanist’s signature warm cookie dough, which is served with a choice of either s’mores, Oreo, Crunchie, or salted pretzel toppings, and is topped off a scoop of vanilla ice cream – and two spoons, obviously.

Talented mixologists have also created a love-inspired cocktail menu especially for the night in collaboration with Channel 4 show First Dates, and the drinks are available in all 24 of The Botanist bars across the UK.


Live music will soundtrack the Valentine’s Day evening too, with talented resident musicians performing from 7pm onwards.

The Botanist’s ‘Valentines Date Night’ menu is available on Wednesday 14 February, and will only set you back £30 per person for three courses and a cocktail.

All First Dates collaboration drinks are priced separately at £9.25 each.
