Blackthorn _ left this review about East India Arms

A smallish, single room pub in the shadow of The Gherkin, a sign outside proudly proclaims that this is run by Britain’s oldest brewery, which is apparently Shepherd Neame. It was surprisingly quiet on a recent mid-week lunchtime visit, with only a couple of other punters stood outside.

Inside it’s quite traditional with much dark wood panelling on the walls, etched glass windows and a few gilded mirrors branded with brewery names which included Bass as well as the owners. Flooring was black wood and there were a few strings of hops hung up above the bar. Seating was quite limited, with the majority of the space being given over to vertical drinking, and consisted of a few bar stools around the perimeter and fitted bench in one corner. A TV was showing a news channel, but the volume was off so this was not too intrusive. A few old pictures of the locale were hung on the walls.

Beers on tap were Spitfire, Spitfire Gold and Whitstable Bay, whilst a fourth pump appeared unused. The solitary cider was Symonds Founders Reserve.

Shepherd Neame pub with a characterful brick exterior set amongst the many modern glass/steel buildings in the area. Dark bare boarded interior with some nice mirrors on the far wall.

A nice looking Shepherd Neame pub, Its more than adequately described in pubsignMans review below, there is actually seven hand pumps in here with four on the main frontage with a bank of three tucked away around the side, despite this only three of the range were available, Spitfire,Spitfire Gold and Whitstable Bay. Its a nice pub and was fairly busy late on Tuesday afternoon,no doubt in part due to its near proximity to Fenchurch Street station. Its a nice pub but if you dont like Sheps beers maybe its not for you, I can take or leave them and wouldn't be adverse to calling in again.
