The Botanist In Alderley Edge - Oast House-like

New World Pub Company to bring ale, cocktails and thrills to quiet, restrained, Cheshire village

Published on February 6th 2012.


The Botanist In Alderley Edge - Oast House-like

THE New World Pub Company has decided to situate their second venture after the run away success of the Oast House in Alderley Edge.

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

This is because of the village absence of a ‘proper pub.’ Although there are already a number of eateries and bars, The Botanist will cater for those wanting a nice relaxing drink and bite to eat in a comfy pub environment.

The pub will be located in the same spot as the previously fashionable but presently defunct Number 15 Wine Bar, which closed in 2009. The New World Pub Company are hoping that they can emulate the success of its illustrious predecessor - with presumably less fake tan.

Due to open in summer, The Botanist will also be a mixture of old and new and will have the 'feel' as its city centre counterpart.

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 a well-stocked cellar of cask-conditioned ales, The Botanist will have around 50 bottled beers and ciders from around the world and a selection of the finest Champagnes (de rigeur in shy Alderley) plus wines and spirits. 

There’ll also be a deli-style smokehouse menu with rotisserie and external barbecue for al-fresco dining, whatever the weather.

No doubt being in Alderley Edge the prices will be even more astronomical than at The Oast House. £9.50 for a ploughmans, £15 for a beef kebab. £3.50 for a 330ml bottle of lager, £4+ for a glass of wine. Outrageous!

Nobody is making you spend your money there. If you don't like the prices and aren't willing to spend your money in that fashion, learn to be less catty and leave it up to those that do. Being labelling Alderley Edge is boring. Really boring.

4 of us went out to eat here. The music was so loud that we could not even shout at each other and be heard. No wonder they make you write your own order out as there is no way the staff can hear what you are saying! A request to turn the music down was ignored three times until a cocky young manager replied " we are a bar, this is what we are about"- in other words like it or leave, so we did, half way through our meal, ending up at the Lebanese a few doors down. A much better place and much better food. Make your mind up guy's as to what you are, a loud bar for the young peacocks bereft of any conversational skills, content in an environment that allows them to strut about thinking they are having a good time deafend by loud music- but don't try to say you can eat here in a relaxed atmosphere. Just awful, absolutely awful!
