Squaremeal Review of The Gun ?

One of Ed and Tom Martin's first gastropubs, The Gun is still a cracker thanks to its riverside setting looking out from Isle of Dogs towards the Dome. It's a "great place summer or winter", according to a fan, although we prefer it on hot days when the large terrace is put to good use. But besides the view, the tasteful modernisation of a rickety old boozer has been pulled off with aplomb. The dining room is more dress-up compared to the bar's jeans-and-trainers vibe, and prices can be eyebrow-raising, but the quality is high – try a terrine of smoked eel, pork and peppercorns with quail's egg and pickled mushrooms or the braised Devon kid with butternut squash, turnips and celeriac mousseline. While the pub menu is simpler (pies, pulled pork rolls, burgers), food is still far from cheap. Beers are well-tended, and there's "a great selection of wines" too.

An unexciting BBQ of burgers and chicken wings forced us inside, which food-wise anyway, is exactly where you want to be as we ate this:
