The Gun

The Gun

| East London

Brothers Tom and Ed Martin - who already have the White Swan in Fetter Lane, and Clerkenwell's The Well to their names - have struck gold once again with The Gun. This historic establishment perches on the Thames on the West India Dock and the brothers Martin have come up with a foodie offering that has made this a favourite with locals and a place worth travelling east for.

"The Gun is a very slick operation, if not a wilfully underpriced one, and just the sort of languid setting that makes you want to sit drinking until sundown." READ REVIEW

"A fine example of gastro as it should be done, the Gun is thoughtfully decked out in dark wood and grey slate tiles, with sofas, bookshelves and huge barrels as stand-up tables." READ REVIEW
