My wife and I went on a Thursday night. We didn't book. The place was quiet. There was a good choice of draught ales. We received a friendly welcome. There was a good menu for a small establishment, although the 'specials' weren't available. We started with squid. My wife had sea bass and I had a Thai chicken dish. The food and service were excellent. The bill came to £66 including drinks (two glasses of wine and two pints of beer) and 10% service, which was included in the charge. It was a pleasant dining experience and we shall certainly go again.

Local or not, this is where you go to feel at home. Excellent service, fantastic food with the flakiest puff pastry crust I've ever seen on a pie. Have had lamb, beef and Guinness, chicken, and all other types of pies here and always impressed by the rich flavours, pastry, crisp beans and fresh mashed potatoes. So happy that this place is walking distance from us so we can easily go there at least a couple of times a month.

Very nice original British pub atmosphere in walking distance of the DoubleTree Docklands hotel. Pretty good food, in particular loved the generous helping of Salt and Pepper Squid, very well cooked, spot on. Pleasant almost innocent service.

We were staying at the Hilton Docklands & wanted to find a pub for a drink on Christmas Eve walking about 150 yards came across The Blacksmiths Arms & enjoyed a great evening with a very lovely couple who run this great historic pub the locals were also lovely & made you feel very welcome sharing their history of the area. Finding this gem of a pub made our night. Would highly recommend & I'm sure we will be back.
