SquareMeal Review of The Gunmakers

Standing on a slightly scruffy Clerkenwell side street, the diminutive Gunmakers makes an agreeable if unassuming bolthole for a pint and some sturdy pub food. Apart from a mini-arsenal of antique firearms mounted on the walls, the interior is a conspicuously stark affair, although the bar is loaded with some less regularly encountered ales – Mad Goose Purity or Hobsons Mild, for instance. Head for the cheery conservatory out the back to sample some gimmick-free pub fare, perhaps beef and stout pie with celeriac mash or a veal chop with spring greens and portobello mushrooms, rounded off with a luscious banoffee pie. Be warned: the tiny space can get pretty packed at peak times, so you may end up drinking on the pavement.

I booked a table for 4 here on Friday. We left within 10 minutes after shockingly rude treatment by the staff. OK so it's Friday night, a small pub and totally rammed but that's not an excuse for making people feel like they are in your way. If you don't want people to come and eat food in your pub on a Friday night then don't sell it. Of the real ales, 2 were off so you had a choice of Harveys best and one other. This might be alright for a post work pint but probably not worth going out of your way for, certainly not a place to take parents/relatives and definitely not somewhere to go if you want service with a smile.
