Description

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!

  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...

Husband - "the duck liver starter was the best I ever had" We had a delicious meal at The Gun. The fish for the fish and chips was so fresh and tasted so very nice. Excellent meal all around. Visited Gun on 2018-03-03

Cold and unappetising. Usually warm and inviting but not this time. No fire and uneventful food Visited Gun on 2018-03-01

Reply from Gun

Thanks 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

Wonderful steaks & a lovely lunch with great service. If the renovations weren’t happening we would have given it 5 Visited Gun on 2018-02-24

Hi There, We organised an event with the Gun to accommodate a lunch for my husbands 40th birthday. The organisation from the team were nothing but superb and I felt at ease the whole time. You guys were all a great help and were flexible on the day when we didn't stick to the timings. The venue was fantastic and everyone had a great time. Thank you for all your help in making it a day to remember. Visited Gun on 2018-02-24

Delighted 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!

I love it here. It was my third visit in the past year and I cannot fault the service, the atmosphere and the location in proximity to the river. However, noticeably more expensive this time. At least a spenny starter more expensive. The food here is consistently good, but not sure if it is acceptably good value for money I will still look forward to visits to the Gun after the refurbishment (please don't change it too much), but there may well be less of them.

Thanks 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!

Absolutely superb. The food in this place is SO good. I had a cured meats & pickle to start followed by the chateaubriand, which was one of the nicest steaks I have had in a long, long time. Beautifully decorated, lovely staff, loads of beers on tap, what more could you ask for? Visited Gun on 2018-02-20

Delighted you enjoyed your steak, they really are good aren't they?! Hope to catch you at The Gun again!

I took my girlfriend to The Gun on Saturday night and the experience simply could not have been better. The staff were attentive and exceptional and so was the food, the venue and the stunning views. The staff wrote my girlfriends name in chocolate as a special treat for us and we were blown away. I would recommend The Giun to anyone visiting London, you won’t regret it.

Excelent place. Food and drinks are good but the view is incredible. Book in advance since it is usually full. Ask for a table at the terrace. It is a must if you are in the Canary Wharf area.

Been here a few times now - whether you want an amazing dinner, a couple of G&T's in the summer or just a quiet catch up with some friends on a weekday this is it. It's a bit of a walk from the station so I tend to get a cab from wherever I am but it's worth the trip.
