Bell and Crown

Kew Gardens is an oasis of botanical wonders situated between Richmond and Kew stations. Although internationally important botanical research is carried out here, the principal draw for tourists is the huge range of plants on show (the world’s largest collection of living plants) and the beautifully tended landscaped gardens. Just on the bank of the Thames is the Bell & Crown. Although the pub’s history is centred more around smuggling than botany, it is a great place to catch a pint after a wander round the gardens. The pub used to be where smugglers landed their contraband, back in the day. The pub now offers some of the best food in Chiswick and is a great place to have an al fresco lunch looking out over the River Thames. However, the Bell & Crown is also a good year round pub, with a cosy fireplace, and a sunny conservatory right down by the river’s edge, which is a unique place to catch the winter rays. Interesting fact: the pub’s name comes from the fact that church bells used to bear the inscription 'Praise God, Honour the King'.
