The Gun, 27 Coldharbour, Docklands, London, E14 9NS 020 7515 5222, (DLR: South Quay) London Pub of the Week No.10: The Gun
Bang bang, you’re fed. Residents and worker ants on and around the Isle of Dogs (shall we call ‘em Doggers? Er, on second thoughts…) no longer have to bite the bullet when it comes to decent pub grub. The Gun is a reformed character of a pub, once a down-at-heel boozer, now tooled-up as gastropub extraordinaire, it’s now taking a shot at the big time. (One more gun crack and you’re fired – ha ha – Ed. ) This 18th Century shop had been destroyed fire several years ago, but a top job of restoration has taken place to save this Grade II listed building. Fresh fish bought daily from nearby Billingsgate market graces both the restaurant and bar menu, with an excellent selection of New World, French, and even English wines. Stinting on nothing, the beer is top drawer, too. .
