A great location which isn't in the center of London. It isn't a turistical location but the tourists are wellcomed the same as the local people. The place is very good, the food also tasty; Gourme. We recomand it!!

I used to visit The Gun in the 2000s as the setting was wonderful and service exceptionally friendly. I returned on the 24th March with a friend and, whilst the service was still great, I have to say that your prices are truly off the scale and do not represent value for money. It is for that reason and with... More

Wanted a pub meal with no fancy dinning in a relaxed environment. This pub delivers both with great food. The word pub is used loosely as this place is more of a restaurant, with a relaxed seating. Great atmosphere with log fires and seating outside on the river. This was recommended to us by our cab driver. The menu is... More

I organised a 21st birthday dinner for my daughter with 55 guests. Everything was excellent - pre-event planning, the food, the staff and service. As well as the quality of the food (from the Feast menu) we were particularly struck by the flexibility of the chef and the front of house staff to accommodate last minute changes (an extra guest,...

Perhaps I'm being unfair for giving The Gun a poor rating because we didn't actually have lunch - but that was only because they didn't have anything available for vegetarians whatsoever! I'm not vegetarian, but my husband is and, living just around the corner, we would love to visit more. We had hoped that the place might become slightly more... More

We took our American counterparts to the Gun whilst they were in town to show off a great example of the British Gastro pub. As ever, it didn't disappoint. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I personally went for a meat feast with the veal sweetbreads followed by venison steak. Both were excellent and exceptionally tasty.... More

You wouldn't find this place by accident and to be honest unless you have business around Canary Wharf I can't quite see why you'd be in this area, but if by change you are this is a little gem. It's 250 years old, has stunning river views and lays claim to Lord Nelson as a regular (obviously not recently). If... More

This is a great pub with lots of history, really nice staff, dining room with impressive views over the Thames and O2, great selection of beers, but the food was awful. The menu has good choice but nobody really impressed by the food at all. So if you are after a great pub experience then the Gun is great but... More

We visited For Sunday lunch on the spur of the moment and found the staff very friendly and accommodating. We were sitting inside and a table on the river came available and they moved us swiftly which was a nice touch. The food was lovely and plentiful, the wine list superb and the desserts were great. Great views of the... More

Description
The Gun is a beautifully restored Grade II listed riverside pub, dating back to the 18th century. Frequented by Lord Horatio Nelson in the late 18th century, the venue has been transformed in recent years into a legendary London gastropub with a 40 cover dining room in the main bar, a back bar with two snugs, two private dining rooms and a fantastic riverside terrace that seats 40. Previously awarded London's Best Dining Pub 2012/13 by The Good Pub Guide, The Gun serves the highest quality British food complemented with experienced service. The bar offers a wide range of beers and cocktails and the wine list is seriously classy too. The nearest stations are Canary Wharf for the Jubilee line and South Quay or Blackwall for the DLR.
