Casual Gourmet Dining at Botanist

Our Botanist restaurant is perfect for a casual weekend lunch or dinner on any evening. Our head chef, Phil Yates, changes the menu every week using the best in-season produce available from our local suppliers. We offer both classic favourites and more creative dishes and our traditional Sunday lunch roast. If you are celebrating a birthday, an engagement, a wedding anniversary or a family occasion we have a number of private dining rooms and promise to make the event special for you. On sunny days, you can dine on our terrace overlooking the garden.

our head chef

Phil Yates is Head Chef of Keavil House Hotel and manages the kitchen team of our Botanist Restaurant.

Phil brings a wealth of experience to the cooking at Keavil House Hotel and has been serving up award winning dishes for over 20 years. Phil cooks with fresh local produce from Fife and Scotland and believes few places have a better natural larder than the farms, hills, seas and rivers of Scotland. 

Our restaurant menus are inspired by Phil’s belief that when dining out you should experience food that you don’t cook in your own home and that you should leave feeling satisfied and surprised.
