Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cheshire Cheese

Apparently basic pub somewhat buried under Fenchurch Street station viaduct, but surprisingly features a more attractive refurbished second floor created from three partially opened-out rooms which is rather larger than the main bar at street level. No obvious branding, but the menu reveals this to now be a Stonegate house. Rather better beer choice than on my previous visit some seven years ago, with four of six handpumps in the main bar operational - offering Hanlon's Firefly and Yellow Hammer, Cottage Thunderbolt and Twickenham Redhead (£3.90, and in good form) - and two more duplicates upstairs on the second (smaller) bar counter. Overall, an improvement.

Steve of N21 left this review about The Cheshire Cheese

Its location underneath the Fenchurch Street railway arches does make a bit of a dark and dingy location, and there are no redeeming architectural features to please the eye.
But if what you are after is a passable pint, and these were London Pride, Adnams Bitter and Jennings Cumberland Ale at the time of my visit, and perhaps a game of pool, (there are two pool tables in the upstairs room and a decent seating area which is quite separate from the pool tables so that you are not interrupted by them), then this pub is OK.
But probably only OK if you work around the corner and want a quick one before catching the train home.
If you have a bit more time then there are far better examples even quite close by.
