Edwards Bar, Hammersmith

I live just around the corner from this pub and always hated it as Edwards. My wife and I were looking forward to a marked change after the refurbishment. The inerior is now both contemporary and stylish. Music is good (possibly too loud at times) and the selection of ales is to be commended. Unfortunately, on two out of three visits I have been disappointed by a bad pint.
Last night (Sat 9th Jan) we dropped in for a meal (they don't take reservations - I stopped and asked earlier in the day). It was 7.30 and we were abruptly told on entering the upstairs dining room that the wait for food was 30 minutes. We ordered drinks anyway. I had a pint of Doombar served at the table in a jug, which I prefer, but I did not notice the colour. After taking an enthusiastic mouthful and swallowing the lot, I quickly examined the pint which was clearly 1 part beer, 1 part cleaning fluid. I asked for and received and alternative pint. 10 miuntes later we were able to attract the attention of the harassed waitress and tried to order, only to be told the kitchen was no longer taking orders as they were so busy. It REALLY was not that busy. We, like three other couples, decided to leave and go elsewhere. In relation to the dodgy pint - I can't leave the house today :-(
Lots of potential, especially as the crowd in this pub seems to have improved but failing right now.
