A Grade II listed early 19th century building, steeped in history, The Gun is located on the banks of the River Thames in the heart of the Docklands. The Gun takes its name from the cannon, fired to celebrate the opening of the West India Import Docks in 1802 and was allegedly home to Lord Nelson’s secret assignations with his lover Lady Emma Hamilton. The pub has been painstaking restored to its former glory, and with a multitude of stunningly refurbished private dining rooms and snug areas to discover, is the perfect destination to settle in with a bottle of fine wine and lose your self in the company of your guests.
The Gun serves a strictly British seasonal menu, with daily changing specials. They are open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with the choice of their carefully crafted fine dining menus and their less formal pub menu for their hungry patrons. Retire to the riverside terrace with sweeping view of the River Thames and the O2 for the ideal spot for your pre-dinner glass of champagne.
This is a very popular destination in the area, be sure to book your table online so you don't miss out!

A word from the chef:
The Gun serves a strictly British seasonal menu, with daily changing specials made with fresh produce from local British farmers.
The Venue In all honesty, The Gun isn’t much to look at from the outside. Cross the threshold however, and it’s a totally different ball game. The front dining area and bar is littered with beautifully laid tables, impressive...

Reply from GunThanks for your feedback. Unfortunately due to the works being done on the roof we're having to restrict the hours at which we can operate the fire. Additionally as we're closing for the refurb at the end of the week (and also because of snow problems) we're having to operate a reduced menu. Hopefully you can visit us again once we reopen to try out the new extensive menu that we will have
Reply from GunDelighted you had a great time with us! Be sure to visit again after the refurb and hopefully we can turn it into a 5 star review!
Reply from GunDelighted you had such a great time at The Gun for your husbands birthday! It's always a pleasure helping to organise such events and yours was no different! See you again soon!
Reply from GunThanks for the great review! We're not planning on any major changes (just a good fix up!) which you'll be glad to hear! With regards to the pricing, we are quite reliant on the availability of produce and stock so you may see seasonal increases depending on the time of the year. We haven't actually increased the price of our set menu for 5 years now! We also run our lunchtime deal of 2 courses for £25 or 3 for £29 so do check that out!
Reply from GunDelighted you enjoyed the food so much! Always a pleasure to have you!
