“Best Sunday roast in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Have had a Sunday roast twice at this pub restaurant and both times it's been fantastic. Always happy to recommend it to anyone staying in London and it's worth going a little out of the way for. A little pricey, but worth it occasionally.

Great riverside spot with views overlooking the Greenwich Peninsula and 02. A nice spot to while away Sunday afternoons while working through the BEER LIST!!
Did I mention cracking cask ales too?

“Go, go, GO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

I had arranged a group Sunday lunch for 14 close friends and were given the beautiful red room, food was superb, service was excellent. I cannot recommend this enough, whether you are going there for a supper for two or a big group. The staff at The Gun know good service. Worth every single penny. View is an added bonus. Please go and try this restaurant you will not regret it. A big thank you to Anna and her excellent team, we were very happy and eternally grateful! It was such a success we will be making this an annual event in our calendar See you soon!

“Superb restaurant and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I feel compelled to write about this absolutely amazing establishment and cant recommend it highly enough to you. The Gun is a period pub and restaurant nestled on the banks of the Thames with fantastic river views, it also looks directly across the river to the O2.

A friend and I had lunch there yesterday and we could not have had a better experience. The food was superb quality and presented beautifully. Our fish board starter, which is designed for two people to share was absolutely divine! There was so many different types of fish presented that we started to wonder if we would be able to manage our main courses!

The main courses also did not disappoint my baked cod was the best I think I have ever had and my friends steak was exceptional too. The seasonal vegetables were also cooked to perfection and so tasty.

The key thing about The Gun that really added to the experience was the friendly warm greeting that we received from every single member of staff. Many places seem to forget that the staff are just as important as the food, but not here at The Gun where every detail has been carefully considered.

The person who looked after us throughout our meal, Brenda, was also exceptional. Her advice on the food selections when we were ordering was spot on and she kept a careful eye over our table without being in the slightest bit over-bearing. Congratulations to her and the Gun for making our lunch experience so memorable.

We are already looking at dates for when we can go back again. If you haven't yet been this place is a must, I promise you wont be disappointed.
