The Gun Pub in Docklands voted best county dining pub in London

A historic pub in the Docklands has been voted the best county dining pub in the capital for the second year running.

The Gun, at Coldharbour, which was frequented by Lord Nelson until his death at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805, picked up the gong from The Good Pub Guide 2013.

The award is based on excellent reader reviews and an anonymous inspection by guide editors, Fiona Stapley and Alisdair Aird.

Ms Stapley said: “It was obvious from the excellent feedback that this pub was a cut above the rest.

“The Gun is a very deserving winner. They adhere to proper pub values within a contemporary setting and the menu is genuinely interesting and imaginative”.

The ETM Group which own the pub was founded by brothers Tom and Ed Martin, who own nine other pubs across London.

Tom Martin said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this significant award again. With London’s gastropub scene burgeoning, it is a real achievement to have won it two years in a row and a testament to our fantastic kitchen and front of house team.”
