Square Meal Review of The Gun ?

From the outside it looks like a small old boozer on a quiet street. Inside, Tom and Ed Martin’s gastropub is a succession of smartly renovated rooms and rickety staircases – and the whole lot abuts the Thames, with ample alfresco dining and outstanding views of the O2. Locals sip ales in the bar, snug in the knowledge that Emma Hamilton (Lord Nelson’s mistress) often met her man at the premises. White tablecloths distinguish the more formal dining areas, where fresh fish and shellfish are a hit: sumptuous oysters counterbalanced by red wine shallot vinegar, followed by roast cod with lemon ricotta ravioli, given a salty kick by sea vegetables and a caper dressing. Big beef and lamb dishes evoke the heartiness of a pub but here are presented with finesse. Puds of zesty lemon curd or apple tart arrive in hearty portions, too. Despite an out-of-the-way location, The Gun is certainly worth a shot.

    Happily sitting on the eastern fringe of Canary Wharf is the Gun; a lovely gastro pub with a superb view on the O2.

    The Gun is the perfect spot for a sunny Sunday brunch beside the Thames. The terrace is really nice, though be careful not to go on a windy day, you might not enjoy the view so much if you’re being swept away.

    All year round, this lovely pub serves traditional English food (mainly inside), which is well presented and delivered to nicely dressed tables...
