Piggy Dave: What a lovely pub. After the last three, it’s like a haven tucked away out the back. Massive bar, but only two ales. Lovely area for the pool table with sumptuous seating near it. The pub has three screens, all showing the aftermath of the Wales v Eire match. Furniture-wise it’s reminiscent of a typical Fuller’s pub (even though it isn’t) with dark brown woods and padded seating. A very nice feel to the place with just the television on and chatter from the locals. Once the game was over the jukebox was played instead, rather loud and intrusively. It’s definitely a sports pub, but not overbearingly so. If I need a pub in Isleworth to watch football I could see this being one of my favourites. It seemed to be closing at 10.30, which I found to be rather early.

Piggy Corin: Although there were only two beers on (London Pride and Tribute), the ale was good and reasonably priced. We may have timed our visit fortuitously, the pub has three screens showing football, but we arrived as the match was finishing and the pub felt warm and welcoming. There is plenty of space. The tables and bar stools are wooden with the comfiest red velour armchairs I have sat in for a while. There is a pool table and a beer garden. Rugby is shown on the screens when it’s on and there is a digital jukebox. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, I would go back again when in Isleworth.

Piggy Rod: A large, pleasant pub with a warm interior, tastefully decorated and lit. Nice wood furniture and next to the bar is an expansive pool room with what looked to be Louis VI antique style furniture to recline on between shots. Three decent screens, all showing football and not overbearingly. It was strange to see adverts promoting vegan food in the toilets while the menus for the pub seemed to be all animal-based fare.
