Good news for both drinkers and job seekers – details have been revealed about a large bar due to open in York this November.

Award winning chain The Botanist is set to launch their 11th site in York. As we revealed in April the pub and restaurant, operated by The New World Trading Company, will be located in the former Mulberry Hall store on Stonegate.

Covering a total of 5,000 sq ft the new venue will serve up a range of botanical cocktails, world beers, and a handpicked selection of gins, local to each of The Botanist sites.

As for food, customers will be able to enjoy deli-inspired boards, and a rotisserie and BBQ-based menu.

The Botanist York will also host live music with daily energetic evening gigs and lazy Sunday afternoon sessions with a real home-from-home atmosphere.

Lots of jobs

The general manager has already been appointed. Ciara Appleton Mcdaid has more than 11 years of industry experience, and previously managed The Botanist in Newcastle.

CEO of the New World Trading Company Chris Hill said:

We’re incredibly excited to bring The Botanist concept to York, as we feel the character and atmosphere of the city fits perfectly with the brand.

It’s great to be able to bring so many jobs to the city and we’re delighted to already have Ciara on board as we begin the recruitment process.

The new venue follows the already existing sites in Manchester, Chester, Alderley Edge, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle, Marlow, Farnham, Knutsford and soon to be Sheffield.
