We've been here before, but what makes me want to review the Gun again, is their staff. In particular, a young lady that went the extra mile for us (when one of us stupidly left a laptop in one bar while dinning in the other!)...More

Hi Kay, Thank you for your feedback. All of our Sunday Roast is slow cooked from the previous night. Unfortunately this means some of the items may run out towards the end of service as we do get very busy. Your comments have been noted...More

Hello, There is step free access into The Gun and to access all facilities. There is one small step onto our riverside terrace area but we do also have a ramp facility if required.

I haven't seen any dogs there but then I have been during the week when most people are at work and are there for their lunch break. I'd suggest giving them a call.

Yes we do allow well behaved dogs on the patio providing they are kept under control at all times and do not disturb the other customers.
