Private Events

The Gun is the ideal venue for private events in Docklands, with a number of function rooms and areas available for hire any day or night of the week. From business meetings to birthday parties and wedding receptions, we accommodate and cater for all manner of events, with a selection of special menus available to suit your needs.

Details of our private rooms are available below. For more information, costings, menus, floorplans and photos, or simply to talk through your ideas for your event, contact our events manager on 020 7515 5222 or email

The Dining Room

We can host private dining for up 80 people, or a standing reception for up to 120, in our main dining room and bar. Of course, the dining room is also available for small groups - you can book a table for up to 8 people online.

The River Room

Our historic River Room, once the scene of secret meetings between Lord Nelson and his mistress, seats up to 16 people around one large, oval oak table. It’s a charming room with plenty of natural daylight, an impressive high ceiling and stunning views of the River Thames and O2 Arena.

The Cabin Room

With beautiful oak-panelled walls and a ceiling lined with antique tankards, The Cabin Room certainly doesn’t lack character. It seats up to 22 people on two long tables (or 15 people on a horseshoe table set-up) and boasts great views over our riverside terrace and the Thames.

The Red Room

With its cosy and traditional pub atmosphere, an open fireplace, Chesterfield armchairs and full views over the terrace and riverside, The Red Room is ideal for canapé parties for up to 25 people standing.

The Red Room is also available for semi-private dining, seating up to 20 guests on two long parallel tables. Combine this room with the adjoining terrace area for the perfect area for pre- or post-dinner drinks.

The Terrace

Our Riverside Terrace is ideal for relaxed gatherings with stunning views of the river and O2 Arena, providing a spectacular backdrop to your event.

The space is fully heated and enclosed, with retractable walls and roof as well as dimmable lighting, so is ideal for parties of up to 60 all year around!

Exclusive Use

For larger events with up to 300 guests, you can hire the whole pub and enjoy the run of the place for the day. This is particularly popular for wedding receptions, with the venue promising a magical event by the Thames.
