THE STORY OF The Botanist

A cornerstone of local Kew life and steeped in history, The Botanist was once a butchers shop and later became a micro-brewery. Enduringly popular with local residents, workers and visitors to the capital, this friendly pub is one of the area’s most established watering holes.

Housed in a heritage listed building with a delightful glass roof hung with hops, The Botanist’s quirkily handsome interior blends original period features with sumptuous contemporary touches. Dog-friendly and boasting an open fire for those chillier months, this charming pub also offers a cosy courtyard beer garden - perfect for laid-back afternoons, al-fresco dining or just a glass of something special on a sunny day.

Living up to its nature-loving name, The Botanist is within easy reach of Kew’s beautiful botanic gardens and an ideal spot for relaxation and refreshment after a scenic walk or special event.

Close to Richmond, Brentford and Isleworth, The Botanist is well-connected to the rest of London via bus links and nearby Kew Gardens station – very easy to get to, this inviting pub is perhaps a little harder to leave!
