Oxblood leather seating together with charcoal grey and pastel green walls can be seen throughout, interspersed with statement floral wallpaper and botanical sketches hanging on the walls, mirroring the pub's leafy location. Slip comfortably into embossed banquettes for a leisurely post work pint, delicious mid-week dinner or weekend lunch with friends.
One side of the pub overlooks the green with its own private outside terrace, while at the back of the pub The Botanist's ‘Secret Garden' courtyard is Richmond's best kept secret and the place to catch some rays paired with a G&T on sublime sunny afternoons.
Choose the ‘Green Room' which features a large group table overlooking Kew Green – ideal for special occasion meals.
The Botanist features unpretentious pub food with an emphasis on seasonal and fresh ingredients and an unrivalled range of draught beers and cask ales.
We went to the recently renowated "The Botanist"'s launch mummy-blogger lunch last week. Most of the mums had their kids to taste the kids menu and to see how the premises work with children in tow. The Botanist is well situated just on Kew Green next to Kew gardens and is difficult to miss. So we thought it was a perfect spot to have lunch with friends or meet-ups. The interior and the staff are welcoming and smiling which puts one at ease right away. We were offered the menu with variety of dishes. Being a breastfeeding mum and hungry, I was very happy with generous food portions, as the food was very good. The kids had separate menu and the food served to them looked good too. There is a baby change on ground floor, with separate baby change and toilet area. There are more toilets upstairs. I had a buggy with me and it was easy to go in and around the pub as it was all levelled. The kids were happily running around the pub ( as it is spacious and not cramped with furniture) or outside in a colourful courtyard. The only minor negative, I didn't find any chair or a side table to place my nappy bag in a baby change area.
But all in all, I am glad that there is a new venue welcoming us with kids and have facilities with delicious food and drinks. I recommend this place to other parents to go there as a family or just with friends for a catch-up drink or a full meal. The Botanist will deliver!
