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.

“Brilliant pub restaurant with views over the river.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had a lovely meal here. Great food, would thoroughly recommend the slow cooked roe deer. A great selection of real ales and good wines. Great service. Lovely surroundings and a fantastic view over the river if you sit outside.

“Fantastic pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

The view from here is amazing, we sat outside overlooking the Dome across the Thames at night during a full moon, beautiful, and the menu was good too. You can choose a la carte or pub grub. We had venison, rib eye steak and fish for mains, and banoffee tart, carrot cake and lime parfait for pud. Couldn't fault any of it it. It's between casual to formal but there's no tick box for that.

“Buzy gastro pub! With a view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Lovely location on the side of the Thames with a view over the river to the O2 arena.

Food is good - whether it's the sit down restaurant or the bar menu.

Decent range of beer and wines.

Only issue is that it always seems to be packed - but that's hopefully just a sign that it's a good popular local pub - rather that being the only pub for a mile in any direction!
