Square Meal Review of The Gun ?

On a bend of the Thames in the heart of Docklands, this history-soaked gastropub from brothers Tom and Ed Martin provides welcome sanctuary from ‘the madness of Canary Wharf’. The terrific views across a wide sweep of the river to the dome of the O2 are a big selling point, but you can also snuggle up in the cosy nooks dotted around this handsome, cleverly restored Georgian building – once home to Lord Nelson’s mistress, Lady Emma Hamilton. We think that the cooking is accomplished and confident, with modern British dishes played straight (braised Yorkshire rabbit with pearl onions, baby carrots, leeks and mustard sauce) or given an intriguing twist (salmon fillet poached with wild garlic, accompanied by caramelised Cox’s apple and smoked-bacon cream). The wine list is impressive yet accessible, staff ‘aim to please’ and the set lunch menu is a real winner.
