Eat At:

Grill Off The Green

10B Kew Green, Richmond TW9 3BH

With its diverse menu and opulent feel, the Grill Off The Green is a lovely restaurant that caters to all dietary requirements. Despite offering an impressive selection of meat-based dishes, Grill Off The Green features a number of delicious vegetarian and vegan options on their bistro menu which makes it that bit more appealing. Plus, this venue also serves a selection of classic cocktails and wines which you can pair with your main course, making for a meal that ticks all the boxes.

Drink At:

The Botanist on the Green

3-5 Kew Grn, Richmond TW9 3AA

Just steps away from Kew Gardens, The Botanist on the Green is home to a charming outdoor garden, complete with blankets for the colder months. There is a vast drinks menu at this venue, featuring cocktails, wine and an array of non-alcoholic options. If you fancy trying one of their boozy beverages, we recommend ordering the blackcurrant and rosemary gimlet which combines Tanqueray blackcurrant gin with rosemary and lime to create a sweet and sour treat.
