Piggy Dave: The Greyhound is mainly a foodie pub with a reasonable selection of beers. Although there is an upstairs restaurant area and the entire back garden is set up for food service when the weather is nice, the pub area always seems too cluttered and busy as if it’s too small for what they are trying to do with it. I’ve never been upstairs, and perhaps they just don’t encourage enough people to go up there to eat. The decor is foodie grey with stripy wallpaper above the paint. The tables are the kind of furniture I would expect in a cheap cafe rather than a pub. Service was quick and friendly and the barman was happy to join in with a bit of friendly banter. The food seems to be on the expensive side, though they do have a reasonable vegetarian selection. I usually avoid this pub because it’s always too full and rarely anywhere to sit, which I suppose says something positive about the place in and of itself. Regardless, there are better pubs nearby.

Piggy Corin: The Greyhound occupies an old mock Tudor building on the north side of Kew Green. There was a reasonable beer selection, as well as the ubiquitous Pride and Doombar, there was Mad Goose and Tribute. The Mad Goose was tasty and well-kept. This is predominantly a foodie pub and was fairly busy on the Monday we visited. The chatter of customers was not drowned out by the background music and I didn’t see any televisions. In all, there was a definite hum around the place. If you are hungry there is a menu that has several veggie options and specialises in seafood. It is, though, pretty pricey for food. Fortunately, the beer is slightly more reasonable. The decor is stripy grey, there are a few ‘yummy mummies’ around and it is a little too poncy for my taste.

Piggy Sue: Lovely looking pub overlooking Kew Green. Happy bar staff but quite foodie. While the food seemed popular, it looked pricey to me.
