The Gun – Docklands

Posted by on Apr 29, 2013 in FOOD | 600 Comments

As a Docklander, it might be a tad biased of me to I say that I love living in the Docklands area. Yes, there might not be as many restaurants to choose from like there are in Central or in West London, BUT there are so many hidden gems around here. So when you do find a gooden, it REALLY is a gooden!

I went to one of my favourite finds recently to celebrate the boy’s birthday – The Gun in the Docklands…
