Rutland Arms, Hammersmith

Late March 08

Now re-opened after refurb. Pity - as so often - that they spend so much money creating a replica of an older-style building, replacing so much of what was taken out only a few years ago.

Since it re-opened mid March I've been back once. Not again as things are. Music (background music - ha ha) so loud that talk was difficult though not impossible. Meanwhile the Dove, 200 yards away, has no music and just lets you talk easily.

If they cared about their regulars or even regular occasionals, they'd have announced the closure for refurb.. they'd also put signs up to annouce the re-opening. As I write, this is some two days away - no indications visible yet.

Let's hope they retain the best of the past, the gentle atmosphere: and that they don't copy the adjacent Rutland with unstopping loud music.

Pity the re-furb, by creating a new doorway, has reduced the river-facing area of the main bar. Wasn't that one of the main attractions? Written 21 3 08
