One of the most historic pubs in London, The Gun also has comfort and character in spades. We like to think Lord Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton enjoyed the same level of fireside cosiness and spectacular views as we do today in this Docklands gem. The riverside terrace is perfect for a summer day, and there's now a gin garden too, if that's your thing. A roast, accompanied by the jug of Bloody Mary, is an ideal Sunday activity, but you'll need to book ahead or turn up early as people travel far and wide for a taste of riverside history.
