Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Showcasing the work of local brewers and small enough to be someone's living room.

The Gun is that rarity in London: a ‘proper pub’. Though it was gussied up by new owners in 2014, its uncovered original signage remain evocative of the proper boozer it doubtless was for a goodly chunk of its existence. Don’t be put off though - it’s still an authentically local place to stop by for a couple of pints, with friendly staff and justly famous jerk chicken croquettes. Thanks to a peculiarity in the licence, you’re allowed to take beer home in a 1.5 pint bottle; before you do, settle in and order two-thirds of a pint of the local Five Points Pale Ale or others from a strong London selection: Beavertown, Redemption, Weird Beard (more generic beers, there to keep the old locals happy, are also available). With fair prices and a shiny new roof terrace, the Gun is certainly worth a shot.
