Real Ale Ray left this review about The Botanist

A bar restaurant, which spans across a row of former shops. The interior is gastro pub style, with a small and central bar and various seating areas across both sides of the main entrance. Ale wise, there were four handpumps offering up Oakham JHB, Wychwood Gold, Doombar and Acorn Barnsley Gold. We went for the Oakham JHB, which was expensive. The service was ok, in spite of the staff rushing around attending to their diners.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Botanist

The former micro-brewery equipment has been removed since my previous visit five years ago, and the whole place has been refurbished too. The main bar area now seems more open and not over cluttered with furniture, but there are still a variety of other seating and dining areas available. Mostly dark gastro-pub decor. Rear patio beer garden. Four of the six handpumps were displaying clips this time: Pride, Doom Bar, Red Squirrel London Porter (which very annoyingly turned out to be off) and Tribute (£1.95 for a grumpy half before I moved on).

THE BOTANIST - a nice pub! I know...I travel the length+breadth of London looking for decent pubs, to eat or drink. This is a decent pub, and the good people of KEW are lucky indeed! :o) If this was walking distance from my humble abode, I'd probably visit at least once a week (...I nearly put 'day', but I'm getting side-glances from "her-in-doors"...so I'd better be more conservative)! Don't ask me what beers were on tap here, I was just glad to get thru' the doors, away from the London hubbub...a little 'haven' on the out-skirts of Central London! And I guess on a sunny day, over-looking Kew Green, watching a cricket match with a pint of best, where would you else be...?!?! ;o) 7/10
