Not really improved much since previous visits. A bit run down. the small bar is more pub-like but the larger bar is where to go to watch sports. had a lager here as the ale looed a bit iffy.

air to say that I wouldn't have ventured into this place if it hadn't been in the Good Beer Guide 2019.

But never judge a book by its cover.

Two rooms - with a larger main room exactly what you would expect for a Railway Arch. Setup for sport, with large screen showing Rugby on my visit. Majority of tables occupied, so a perch along the lengthy bar.

Plenty of real ale choices - the Hogsback TEA was perfect condition and served in the branded glass.

Would go back, if in the area.

This place seems to get dirtier and dirtier. Service is fairly clueless and what's with the plastic glasses. We only came here because the Waterloo Tap was closed. Ales were Watney's Pale Ale, Truman's Gunboat Smith, Greene King Abbot, Hogs Back Tea, Southwark Bankside Blonde & Harvard, Young's Bitter & Sharp's Doom Bar.

There was a crowd of us who popped in after visiting the Christmas market. When we walked in it was pretty empty and dark. The beer were ok but the service for the bar staff was very miserable and the manager I presume (a guy) was very miserable and wouldn't make eye contact with you and basically ignored you and before last orders was clearing up and when asked if the pub was closing he just grunted yes, still not making eye contact, it was like he just didn't want us to be there. I wouldn't recommend wasting my time or money in going back again as there are a lot more happier pubs around who are willing to take time in greeting this customers and actually showing an interest in them rather than just taking their money!

The last poster didn't have a drink - but opines that it probably is a good beer pub!

Why not try it, and tell us after?
