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.

Be warned: the tiny space can get pretty packed at peak times, so you may end up drinking on the pavement.
