The Gun

27 Coldharbour, Docklands, LONDON, E14 9NS

Once a dockers', stevedores' and boatmen's local, this old Thames-side pub was named after the cannon fired to celebrate the opening of West India Docks in 1802. In the main bar London brewer Sambrook's Junction sits alongside Adnams Bitter, Otter Amber and Symonds cider. There is also a restaurant, two private dining rooms (one where Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton secretly met), two snugs, and a riverside terrace overlooking the Millennium Dome. Snacks include Colchester rock oysters; devilled whitebait; and black pudding Scotch eggs, while the main menu offers pan-fried fillet of golden bream with Dorset crab mash; thyme-roasted Suffolk poussin; and sautéed potato gnocchi with kale and roast squash. Croatian, Greek and Lebanese wines feature among the 100-or-so listed.
