60 Jobs Created Ahead of The Botanist Opening in York

The award winning The Botanist is set to launch their 11th site in York. The unique pub and restaurant, operated by The New World Trading Company, will open its doors this November.

Holding a prominent location in the city centre, The Botanist York will be located on Stonegate, covering a total of 5000sq ft. The extensive offering includes a range of botanical cocktails, world famous beers and ales plus a handpicked selection of gins, local to each of The Botanist sites. The new venue follows the already existing sites in Manchester, Chester, Alderley Edge, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle, Marlow, Farnham, Knutsford and soon to be Sheffield.

Alongside the extensive drinks offering, 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.

The opening of The Botanist York will create up to 60 jobs for locals within the area. Those interested in joining the exciting brand, voted Best Employer at The Publican Awards, are invited to attend two recruitment days on the 4th and 5th of October at The Mercure Hotel. Please contact or call Jennie Bell on 07812668548 prior to attending.

A General Manager has already been appointed, Ciara Appleton Mcdaid. With over 11 years of industry experience, Ciara will be joining from her previous role as Designate General Manager at The Botanist in Newcastle.

Commenting on the opening, Chris Hill, Chief Executive Officer at The New World Trading Company 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.
