The Gun

If you’re looking for a quirky venue with history for a smaller, more intimate business meeting or private dining, The Gun ticks all the boxes. This unique inn can be found in the heart of London’s Docklands, just a short stroll from Canary Warf; it’s understandably gained a reputation as one of London’s best waterside pubs, enjoying a wonderful outlook over the River Thames and views of the world famous O2 Arena. You should try it.

The ambience of the Dining Room makes a good setting for a standing reception for 120 guests, or for private dining for up to 80. The Cabin Room has oak panelled walls which lend a distinguished and intimate feel to this beautiful room; look up and you can admire the interesting collection of antique tankards hanging from the ceiling – a quirky talking point! This room seats up to 22 guests on two long tables, or 15 in a horse shoe arrangement, and takes in the views of the venue’s riverside terrace and the Thames.

The lovely River Room boasts lots of natural light and high ceilings, and here’s something - Lord Nelson held secret trysts with his mistress here, so how’s that for history! Up to 16 can be seated round a big oval oak table and enjoy the delightful outlook.

The cosiness of the Red Room, with its open fireplace, comfortable Chesterfield armchairs, and terrace/river outlook makes it perfect for small receptions for up to 25 people, or for private dining for 20 guests on two long tables, with the option of pre-dinner drinks on the terrace.

The Terrace itself is fully enclosed and heated, and the retractable walls and roof mean it’s great for use year round - regardless of the unreliable English weather! This is the perfect spot for relaxed gatherings, with the spectacular backdrop of the O2 Arena and the River Thames being quite a talking point.

As well as individual room hire, you can have exclusive use of the entire venue, with capacity for up to 300 guests. A popular option for corporate events, offering a relaxed environment for training sessions, seminars and product testing. The Gun has a well experienced kitchen team who create a range of mouth-watering dishes to suit all tastes.

Parking is available at Lawn House Close NCP car park, whilst The Gun is just a short stroll from Canary Wharf tube station, and accessible by public transport.
