137. Edwards, Portland Street

Edwards, Portland Street. (c) manchesterbars.

Currently called Edwards but has previously been Night & Day amongst other various names and guises, but seems settled on this particular chain now.  If you are not familiar with the Edwards chain, think Wetherspoons but with dearer drinks and less old people, because that pretty much sums it up.  As with the previous three pubs of the day, no real ale, and by now we're fed up with Guinness so it's a quick bottle of Desperados to liven the palate.  Bottle drinking isn't our normal choice but in this instance was justified and at least resulted in a sharp exit, leaving the diners to it.  It's not that Edwards is a terrible place, it's just very, very bland.
