At one time very good - now terrible
Food which at one time was well cooked and of top quality is now terrible. The garlic bread has artificial flavouring leaving a bad after- taste which lasts through the whole meal. The steak which in the past was cooked as asked (medium rare) now is served cooked to a cinder. The puddings at one time were the best, now the worst. Home made brownies soft and gooey with real chocolate? No - dry cake with a weak cocoa flavour.I have recommended The Gun to many friends and colleges in the past, but now I would say stay clear, cheap food badly cooked at a high price.

Superb
  9 / 10
My family (8 of us) had a meal here last week. We have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal but on this occasion the staff really excelled, the food was top quality and the best meal out we have had for quite a while. I was prompted to write this review by the comments by ZakMarsh, he complained about the "fried camembert" he was probably expecting the mass produced camembert covered in breadcrumbs which are bland and tasteless. I ordered the baked camembert which is real camembert and is baked in the balsa-wood pakages they are sold in. This does taste strong and does whiff a bit as well it was fantastic!

I STILL can’t believe that he refused to adjust the bill!
  1 / 10
I had the misfortune of eating in this pub yesterday and what should have been a pleasant relaxing experience became an exercise in not losing one?s rag with an arrogant over bearing manager who forced me to pay for a £5.95 starter that I politely sent back. I ordered fried camembert as a starter as it is one of my favourites. I have had it often enough over the years to know what to expect and what it tastes like. It was giving off such a strong smell when it arrived I was hesitant to try it. I did and it was awful and in my opinion horrible. The Manager came over and he insisted it was camembert which was fine, he did say sorry and removed it. We then waited over 45 mins for our main courses, nice and simple chicken and chips with vegetables with a jug of gravy. I did eat this although the chicken was dreadfully over cooked and the entire meal had that scorching hot microwaved taste. The gravy I left as I could have made better myself with gravy granules! The meal came to £36.00 and I left a tip for the waiter bringing it to £40. I was incensed when I got into my car to find I had still been charged for the starter I did not eat. I returned to speak to the manager who insisted on showing me the box the camembert had come in. It was a rustic camembert that is much stronger than the usual, so this does become a question of personal taste. He had completely missed the point. It wasn?t about the ruddy cheese; it was about how he reacted to the situation and how my experience as a paying customer had been compromised. I didn?t like it with good reason, I sent it back. I should not have been charged. End of. I should not have been forced or challenged over what became an incident in how not to deal with a customer. refused to adjust the bill! I STILL can?t believe that he refused to adjust the bill! Really bad form and I wish I had now refused to pay the entire bill. Anything for an easy life eh, even being fleeced. I actually feel sorry for whoever owns this place as they have obviously put in a lot of time and money. What is the saying about not being able to get the staff? Be warned.
