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 Adnams and Jugged Hare Pale Ale sit alongside regularly changing guest beers. 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 O2 Arena. Snacks include Colchester rock oysters; devilled whitebait; and black pudding Scotch eggs, while the dining room menu offers dishes such as pan-fried fillet of sea bass with clams, saffron potato purée, sea shore vegetables, and fennel cream; or smoked loin of wild Suffolk venison, with braised leg shepherd's pie, turnip tops and parsnip purée. Croatian, Greek and Lebanese wines feature among the 100-or-so listed.
