Very cosy pub. Alas far from City center but with the travel for. 6 tapís of own brew and of High quality. 9 ordinśrt tapís. 30 bottles, severel belgians and english i had not sene before. I Will be back
***Update late 2013 - now taken over by M&B who have closed the brewery with immediate affect. Pub still open*** An interesting pub layout with the brew equipment as the centrepiece in the pub, no glass segregation like most brewpubs I have visited (I do wonder about infections...) I have found their beers inconsistent in quality ranging from good to undrinkable and not exactly cheap at about £4/pint (though they give CAMRA members discount). Despite being fairly local I have not been for almost a year as I am waiting until things improve quality wise, which I am told is happening, gradually. Worth visiting if in the area.
Visited for the first time around 5pm on Thursday 28th February 2013.
Medium to large sized brew pub with a central bar and rooms to the left and right (slightly smaller and more dining orientated so it seemed).
Bar carried 6 cask lines - all Botanist and some average so so taps.
Decor was nice, an upmarket gastro type of place, all wooden floors and mix of wooden seats, tables, vintage style affair, mix of chairs and some leather bench seating.
Only 7 or 8 other punters on my arrival but this had risen to 25/30 by the time I left 40 or so minutes later.
Service was good, albeit not busy, and I was offered samples.
They acually do a 3 x 1/3rd pint sample bat for £3.45 but this doesnít work out any cheaper than buying 1/3rd pints at £1.15 a go !!!
Nice place - will come here for dinner at some point in the future.
Visited this place 6/8-2012, together with some great beer friends.
Rather large brewpub just outside the famous Kew Garden. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. With 6 taps its possible to have a nice selection of their beers. The brewery is a part of this place, very nice :-)
The Botanist have a small beer garden and also a bottle selection.
They have a nice menu, both for lunch and dinner, we didnīt eat there, but for sure will be back to eat and try their Queen Charlotte, which wasnīt on that day :-)
A nice brewpub. Upscale, with lots of seating and plenty of natural light. Good prices. Nice range of house beers (appx. six on my visit) plus about 20+ bottled beers from other breweries. The house beers are decent, though nothing has blown me away. Friendly staff, happy to offer samples - and they were generous with their samples. Food menu looked good, though I didnít eat on my visit. Pleasant music, nice decor. As one of only a handful of true brewpubs in London, this place definitely one of (if not THE) best. Well worth making the trip here.
A nice and cozy restaurant with a small brewery. Decent beers indeed, friendly service and the food where fabulous. We went for some charring platters with tapas and ending up with one of the better meals Iíve ever had at a British pub. Not a typical pub, but a restaurant with a brewery and a decent beer selection. A good alternative for lunch if the wife has an interest for botanic and gardens.
Modern brewpub located just off Kew Bridge. Some nice touches - such as the exposed ingredients tables. The small brew kit is located right in front of the bar. Iíve had a couple of their beers before and they are of pretty decent. The main disappointment was that on a Friday night they only had 2 of their beers of draft!! Bottle list is solid, with the likes of Magic Rock, Thornbridge and flying dog, but itís damn expensive for what it is! The food is modern pub fare and pretty tasty at that. Will have to return when they have more beers on. Has potential.
