Set underneath a railway bridge, the interior is less interesting than the exterior suggests. A sizable opened out room of little character but set out with plenty of sensible seating. Despite six handpumps only Doom Bar was available on cask when I arrived, so BrewDog Planet Pale was my fall back choice on keg. Rather annoyingly within five minutes of taking my seat the afore mentioned Doom Bar was joined by Oakham Citra, London Pride and Landlord, timing is everything, or not in my case. Not a pub likely to pull me back in anytime soon though.

This is a very old pub dating back to at least 1600, but rebuilt into the Fenchurch Street railway arch. It had been a Charrington’s house – sorry arch – as was evinced by the Charrington’s lettering which has now sadly gone.
This was my first foray into the gentle art of drinking underneath a railway arch, once the purview of Flanagan and Allen but now all the rage amongst hipsters. The floor is bare boarded or tiles and the colour scheme grey. There’s a fairly ornate bar back with some red and green stained-glass infill. The crowd here, most seemingly munching burgers, seemed to comprise some obvious City workers, but also indigenous locals, all very vocally cheering on Liverpool, broadcast with commentary from a large array of TVs, further distractions provided by multiple flashing games machines and a horrible Clear Channel ad board; lighting was provided by brass and glass sconces, which illuminated all the tables with their uncleared dinner plates and glasses.
Aside from one unused pump and one with a reversed clip, there was the uninspiring choice of Doom or Pride, with redemption arriving in the form of Ringwood’s Boon Doggle, £2.50 the half and nice, served by a friendly barmaid.
Closed at weekends, I really didn’t take to this raucous place one bit, the worst stop on my seven-pub City crawl, though at least the TVs were actually being watched for once; the Crutched Friar and especially the Ship are all close at hand.

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.
