If The Botanist were a person rather than a place, I believe their style would be steam punk. For the Botanist Newcastle has an industrialised garden feel about it. However industrial it may be the place is relaxed and comfortable. There are a range of seating areas to suit all tastes. From a dinning table and chairs to the outdoor garden style seating and the high tables and chairs. 0191 261 6307
