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.

Best pub in London, always a welcoming atmosphere, wonderful selection of local beers, always amazing ambience. In the week it feels like you've been invited round to a friend's house it's so warm and welcoming and at the weekend the careful selection of amazing DJs create the best vibes I've ever seen in a local, like being in the best club with the best crowd. Special gem. The landlord even organised Well Street Market Against Racism festival which really showed his ethos of uniting the local community. Every time I go in there I make new friends and have a blast. Food is incredible too. Best place in London never mind Hackney!
The Gun manages to be modern, without feeling pretentious. As such, it is visited by a broad range of people and feels very inclusive and local.
This place is an absolute treasure. Super committed to the local community, supportive of independent breweries, and just an absolute kick-ass place to be on a Friday night. Plus they regularly play David Bowie. It's the best.
Good drinks, friendly staff, and great vibes generally. Not tried the food yet, but we plan on returning here soon after an unplanned, but singularly awesome Saturday night in there last weekend.
