The Gun

27 Coldharbour, LONDON, E14 9NS

1 rosettes

Renovated a decade ago after a fire gutted the 250-year-old inn which once hosted Lord Nelson's trysts with Lady Emma Hamilton, this former dockers' boozer now wears the spruced-up look of a modern gastro pub. The Thames-side terrace with views across the water of the O2 Arena, along with an upbeat atmosphere and big-hearted cooking draw in the crowds from nearby Canary Wharf. There's a smart dining room in the main bar at the front, cosy snugs at the back, and it's all decked out with wooden and slate floors, naval-related art on white walls, and white linen on the tables. Top-quality, seasonal ingredients are at the heart of it all, setting out with confit wild boar collar with celeriac remoulade and burnt apple pur?e ahead of roasted fillet of cod with lemon ricotta ravioli, samphire and caper beurre blanc. An indulgently rich dark chocolate mousse with confit oranges wraps things up in fine style.
