Very impress with the staff at the bar they were very nice and friendly. The whole evening made us melted and impressed with every single dish been served to us, of course a bit pricy but worth to try.

We were a large group of 13 & had a wonderful night of great food. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the restaurant had a great atmosphere, as did the gin bar outside, along the river. The only negative is that the barman...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.
