The Gun provided a separate room for my Mum's wake and I could not fault the food or service provided. I would happily recommend The Gun to anyone and also appreciate the quick response provided when my Auntie became unwell at the venue.

The Gun Pub is a welcoming and friendly traditional style pub with a fantastic bar menu that will suit all tastes ranging from light bites to traditional fish and chips, steak and ale pie and our very own minted lamb shanks. On Sundays a full Sunday roast with all the trimmings is served in the Restaurant and bar areas. There is a large selection of all types of beverage at competitive prices. We have function facilities available for private parties and weddings and we also cater for funeral receptions. We hold tribute nights in the Restaurant with a fine dining experience with a menu specially chosen for each of these evenings and we also hold special events and help others raise money for their chosen charities.
