Piggy Dave: A Fuller’s pub a little off the beaten track but surrounded by houses that I guess provide much of the day to day business when no rugby is on. Flags and decorations are all rugby based, reflecting the pub’s relative closeness to Twickenham rugby stadium. Service was immediate and friendly and there was a guest ale on. The ambience was nice with music playing in the background. There is also a real fire that gives off a cosy feel to the place and the furniture is a little more rustic than one normally finds in a Fuller’s pub. Food is a big part of the marketing plan here and the pub is large enough for it not to impinge on the pub side of things. There are quite a few veggie options and it is quite reasonably priced for a pub, particularly from Monday to Thursday when most of the main meals are 20% off. There is bare wooden floor except for tiling around the bar area and plenty of comfy seats. The decor is foodie grey and white and they appear to have live music every weekend, though I suspect it is cover bands. This was a pleasant start to a night’s pigging, there were a few people in when we arrived and more kept arriving which is a good sign at 7 pm on a Monday.

Piggy Corin: The Royal Oak is a warm and welcoming Fuller’s pub in residential Isleworth. We were greeted by a decent selection of Fuller’s beers and Hobgoblin as the guest ale, a roaring fire and quick, efficient service. This pub has a lovely, cosy ambience. There are wooden floors, low beamed ceiling and comfortable seating. There were a few others in the pub, appearing mostly to come for the food. The menu is reasonably priced for suburban London and offers standard pub fare with good veggie options. There is a separate dining room from the bar area, but one can still eat in the bar if preferred. Monday night football was visible on the screen with music playing in the background. Live music is offered on Saturday evenings, there is also a listing of forthcoming rugby union matches to be shown. If I lived nearer, this would not be a bad option as my local.
