Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Arch Rivals

The Arch Rivals was our second stop along this stretch of railway arches. The pub itself is located under one arch. As others have said, it has music memorabilia on the walls. But they also had a second bare arch with seating, as well as further seating in the passage.

Just 2 ales were on - Wye Valley HPA & Hartlebury Rock 'n' Roll Star. There was no real cider. I was hoping for a little more from this place. But it's worth a try.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Arch Rivals

One of several bars, coffee shops and restaurants under the railway arches, this one is a bit hidden away down an alleyway so is unlikely to be encountered by chance... Anyway, it is larger than one might expect and the interior of the structure is mostly covered over and squared off, apart from the counter at the far end. Sparsely furnished, with rock'n'roll decor and background music. This theme extends to the names of the 'house' beer and cider on two of the four handpumps, with Hop Shed Wybar (£3.50) and Salopian Lemon Dream available from the other pair.

One to hunt out - hosted in a railway arch along a lane that has a gated dead end nearest the river.

Interior decor described by Quinno - very musical vibe. Can only liken it to drinking in an Anderson shelter and the trains rumbling overhead can be interpreted as falling doodlebugs, for the full experience.

Started to fill up with regulars around 5:30pm - which was an encouraging sign. Many craft cans on display and a couple of handpulls - with the Wye Valley HPA in tremendous condition.
