The menu is packed with exciting treats, including their famous hanging skewers for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. Brunch platters and roast dinners are also on the cards for the New Year.
There is an epic range of drinks as well, with a particular emphasis on including exceptional mocktails.
Deputy Managing Director Chris Bussell said: “This is something that sometimes is not looked at so much in a bar, but in st century now there are so many people who don’t necessarily drink.
“It’s a personal decision or a religious decision and it’s something that we, as a company, want to take charge of. We want to give people different options and having a really good mocktail menu just gives people variety and that’s something we’re really proud of.
“The openings are always interesting, but it was a brilliant trip. We have a great team so far and are delighted to welcome the people of Exeter to The Botanist.
