Piggy Dave: Music in the background when we arrived and it wasn’t intrusive. One customer here reading at the bar. Service was immediate, unsurprisingly. The tables give a rustic feel and the walls are painted black and cream. Plenty of pictures on the walls, some for sale by local artists, others old photos of Brentford. The beer is a bit on the pricy side and the atmosphere is almost non-existent. It appears to be trying to be a foodie pub but we turned up too late to check what was on offer. I really don’t feel this pub, it should be better than it is. I can only imagine they do very well at lunchtimes and earlier in the evening when food is available.

Piggy Corin: A free house with Fuller’s and Twickenham beers on offer tonight. Good beer and a pleasant atmosphere, although it isn’t busy. Quiet background music, clean tables and good service. There is food offered, quiz nights and interesting pictures on the walls, including creations by local artists that are for sale. Altogether, not a bad boozer, if a little pricy.

Piggy Sue: Quaint looking pub from the outside and my favourite beer, Naked Ladies, is on tap and is good quality as usual, though not the cheapest. Good menu with Japanese food as well as the usual pub offerings. There is a garden out the back, darts and bar billiards (though sadly out of order when we visited).

Piggy Rod: Pretty looking little pub from the outside with a nice interior. Only two ales out of three are available but at least one is a Naked Ladies. I like the feel of the inside but it could be made more of – maybe a bit of live music occasionally and mismatch furniture to mimic an old country pub.
