Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Gun

Smart new 'Barrel House & Kitchen', with a mix of semi-modern furniture around the bar area which features plenty of window area on two sides under a high ceiling. There is also a slightly raised seating area at one end with more traditional furniture and decor. The beer barrels are visible too, housed in a glazed mezzanine behind the bar-back. Four real ales on handpump: the 'house' Gunners' (£4.80), Pride, Deuchar's IPA and Otter Bitter.

Clive Thompson left this review about The Gun

This is a 're-imagining' of the previous pub of the same name that stood on the site until around 2015 when the whole site was demolished for redevelopment. It is vastly different from the old pub, a fair bit bigger and they are going squarely down the gastro route. Being new it's all very sterile looking and with a new smell. There are a lot of glass doors and windows so it is not easy to spot the right entrance - which is on the corner where the old one was located. To the right of the bar at the far end of the pub is a raised area with a large fireplace and snug areas on either side. Much of the ceiling is exposed beams and copper piping in a brewpub sort of way. I don't think they brew on the premises but they did have a bespoke ale called Gunners Ale. The other cask ale was Caledonian Deuchars, which I recall they used to have on at the old place. All in all it's a decent venue and it's good to see the Gun rising from the ashes. I suspect the owners, The East London Pub Co. did a deal with the developers, and do seem to have spent the money well.
