Botanist on the Green
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Taking its cue from Kew Gardens, this light, flowery bar-restaurant a short hop south of Kew Bridge offers the illusion that you’re drinking beer in a greenhouse.
There’s plenty of choice: Sagres, Greene King IPA and Erdinger Weiß, plus Symonds and Aspall Suffolk ciders. Anchor Steam Ale, Estrella and Duvel number among the bottled options.
Cocktails (available by glass or pitcher) include a Botanist of gin, passion fruit and sundry juices; the wine list is equally user-friendly.
Quality bar snacks are typified by the meze platter with Exeter Street Bakery focaccia.
Kids’ drawing kits encourage ice-cream pitstops after a trawl through Kew Gardens. The one flaw: brusque-almost-rude bar service on our most recent visit.
