The Botanist Arrives In Alderley Edge

Living Ventures swings back into 'the Village'

Published on October 11th 2012.


The Botanist Arrives In Alderley Edge

ALDERLEY Edge has witnessed many changes over the years particularly in food and drink.

There's also an open fire, a deli-style smokehouse menu with rotisserie, and an external barbecue for year round al-fresco dining the walled garden. 

On Wednesday 2 October, The New World Pub Company ( a Living Ventures product) opened their pub, The Botanist. This follows the model of their phenomenally successful Oast House in Spinningfields in the city centre.

The Botanist takes over the site of Number 15 Wine Bar, the aspiration is to become as well-known and popular as its illustrious predecessor.

Tim Bacon, Managing Director of Living Ventures says: “The Oast House in Manchester has established a very strong following in a short space of time so I’m confident we will achieve the same with The Botanist and bring No 15 back to life."

In addition to cask-conditioned ales (which might suprise a cocktail and lager laden village) there are around 50 bottled beers and ciders from around the world and a selection of Champagnes, wines and spirits. 

There's also an open fire, a deli-style smokehouse menu with rotisserie, and an external barbecue for year round al-fresco dining the walled garden.

These images are further proof that we did not have a BBQ summer this year...

Looking forward already to those Alderley Edge specials, "The Frozen Forehead" and "The Fixed Smile". No doubt also at £4 plus a pint. Or something equally ridiculous...

oh Poster, you're such a joy... I don't think you are the Alderley Edge type to be fair, so just stick to a nice Old Man's Pub in Swinton.

Pray tell-what exactly is "the Alderley Edge type"...?

Let's hope the bar is bigger than the one at The Oast House. Given up going as it takes so long to get served through a sea of people...

used to love the No15 when I worked in Alderley Edge and the boss of the place was frequently to be seen in Somerfield trying to stock up and things he had run out off for lunch - my fondest memory is of him clearing Somerfield of Halloumi cheese - must have been a first for them!!
