Overlooking Kew Green and the cricket pitch there,this is an good looking pub with a food orientation but with a drinking area around the bar.There are lots of beams,lightly coloured in a gastro theme with some comfy chairs,high backed chairs,pooves while further around the interior there are dining tables set with cutlery.There are some nooks and crannies creating discrete areas and a fine rear walled beer garden.
Service was very attentive with table service once you have said you are dining,although drinkers will be left alone.The food is really pub grub at a slight premium price but not exorbitant.Mains were hovering between £10-15 .
There are 4 handpumps with GK IPA,Hogs Back TEA and Surrey Nirvana (good nick,nice drop) on my trip.Overall decent place for something to eat with good views over the Green and close to an entrance to Kew Gardens.Unresticted car parking is an added bonus ,and a rareity in this neighbourhood.

Although there are various original and interesting features on view here, the overall feel is rather corporate and even clinical with uniformed staff and a definite lean towards the gastro route. The bar is ahead on entering, against a back wall, then the area expands to the right and runs back with a slight return at the far end, all this area being set for formal dining. There is a distressed beamed ceiling, exposed brick fireplace with stacked logs and some remaining leaded windows with the occasional bullnose. The cricketing theme runs through, there are a pair of wall murals of a game in the days of yore plus bats and stumps on the window cills, framed prints and even a table lamp with a series of cricket balls forming the base. There is just about every form of seating you can imagine but enough regular style to suit the likes of myself, the flooring is similarly varied. To the rear is a walled garden and there is a tiered terrace facing the green to the frontage.
The TV had some kind of game show on, thankfully muted while a strange woozy ambient music played.
There are four handpumps but just two were clipped, Hook Norton Greedy Goose (£4.13) and Plain Ales Innspiration. It doesn't really feel like a drinkers pub based on my mid-afternoon visit, in fact I was the only customer sitting with a pint, a few were eating and one lady came in for a pot of tea. I didn't feel awkward or unwelcome but I didn't really settle in here.

I liked the interior of this pub, with lots of large exposed original oak beams. The pub was comfortable and felt quite homely and relaxing. Probably the best on Kew Green on this visit. There were four pumps on the bar, so we went for the Twickenham Grandstand. The staff were friendly and service was fast, even though a lot of people had called in for lunch.
