TO CELEBRATE The Botanist’s first Valentine’s Day in Cheltenham, couples celebrating their very first Valentine’s together will be treated to a complimentary glass of fizz!

If couples dining at The Botanist on Thursday, February 14 can show they’ve recently become ‘Facebook official’ they’ll each receive the glass of bubbly to celebrate in style. 

Sales and Events Manager Chelsea Rixson said: “We’re very excited about our first Valentine’s Day in Cheltenham. We’ve certainly been feeling the love from our visitors since we opened in December and we wanted to do something a bit special for our first year. We hope to get lots of people coming to celebrate with us, along with our first timers. We know there’s something magical about marking special occasions for the very first time.”


In additional to its special new couple celebration, The Botanist has plenty of options for everyone this Valentine’s Day. Whether loved ones are celebrating Valentine’s, Galentines or even single-times - there’s an event for all to enjoy.

A romantic sharing menu for couples starts at £75 and includes a bottle of Prosecco. Diners can share a baked Camembert in garlic and rosemary sourdough or a delicious deli board, followed by flavoursome Hanging Kebabs™, burgers or a steak. Finish off with the chef’s specially crafted chocolate fondue pot with strawberries, marshmallows and other delicious delights.

The Botanist will also be playing cupid this Valentine’s Day with a singles matchmaking mixer in the beautiful plant-lined glasshouse. A host will pair up singletons to get to know each other over ice-breaker board games, while enjoying a complimentary glass of Prosecco or bottle of beer. Tickets are £10 and include nibbles along with the opportunity to mingle and mix too.

For ladies celebrating Galentines, the private dining room will be specially decorated with peach and white flowers and balloons for a wonderful girly get together. Currently available for 8-10 people, guests will be able to choose from three bottles of Prosecco, 10 cocktails or four gin carafes, whilst dining from a delicious three course set menu.

The Botanist opened in The Brewery Quarter, Cheltenham, on Monday, December 3. The new bar and restaurant has been designed as a Botanist’s dream and gives the atmosphere of a plant collector’s paradise tucked away inside a secret garden. It brings a striking interior of walls adorned with trees and vines as well as intriguing antiquities, trinkets and treasures.

The Botanist serves an array of botanical-infused cocktails, mocktails, local gins, world famous beers and ales and a variety of classic food as well as deli sharing boards and its signature  hanging Kebabs™, against a backdrop of live music.
