Fairly standard pub - light, clean, modern interior. Three cask ales on - nothing to get a tickerís juices flowing. Small patio area out the back.

I visited The Gunmakers on Thursday 30th October 2014. Yet another one of those pubs that I had somehow managed to miss hmeven though I always knew it was barely a 2-3 min walk from Craft, Clerkenwell. Beer choice was limited but appeared decent I had a half of Castle Rock Pumkin Porter which was in pretty good nick and served in a cute half pint dimpled mug. I overheard the young barman explaining to someone over the phone that they had taken over the place quite recently (1st October, I believe he said) so having never been here before I am unsure if the beer choice is better ir worse, though a chalkboard that announces *new* beers such as Guinness and Peroni may suggest it is dumbing down the beer menu, though I noted that Brewdog Dead Pony Club looked to be on as a permanent keg (Loz would be happy) it is another pub that is situated just a short distance away from the hustle and bustle, Small frontage and with bar on LH side immediately as you enter. I never explored the place but I guess it went back a bit. Pleasant, tidy place, certainly worth a quickie on a crawl of the area.

A charming little two-roomed cornerpub in the Clerkenwell area, a short walk from the Craft Beer Co. Itís a freehouse with six hand pumps, one of them for cider. I had three cask ales from the Portobello microbrewery, all of them in tip top condition and served at the very right drinking temperature. For lunch I had a tasty dish called Ham, Egg, Fries which was one of five food options. Friendly service with Stonch hanging around. Music free and relaxing. A good banter! (Visited 23.09.2014).

Visited in August 2014, with beery friends :-). After a long walk this little cosy place turned up ( I spotted it, while the guys were discussing where to go ).. A small, but very cosy pub, beers and the perry were served in good condition, very friendly staff, who knew their stuff of the beers. In the back a nice little beergarden, I really loved this place, maybe because I spotted it ;-)..

Cozy English pub with a tiny bar and. Nice rear patio. Service was friendly and a few casks to keep you happy. Prices are good. A great quiet local in a busy part of town.

Mostly an alright place. Not very many taps, seven I think. Hurried service but was crowded. Food looks good, a bit on the pricey side I suppose, but pretty nice.

A small pub with guest beers usually from some local newish breweries eg. Windsor & Eton / East London Brewery etc. Did have a London brewery fest about a year ago which was good as had beers on stillage in the back room aswell as beers passing through the handpumps. But the high prices put me off this pub.

First visit to this great little pub last night, only to find they were running a beer Festival. I didnít appreciate that this was Stonchís pub at the time, but we really quite enjoyed it. On our vote going home it equalled the pub of the night. I have put a good mark for selection as the Winter Ales Fest was on, there were some big beers on thatís for certain. I would imagine itís quite a bit more restricted normally. The pub itself is a bit higgeldy piggeldy with a hump to get over, tricky with a handfull of beers. Great little pub though, shame itís shut at weekends.
Revisit Feb í13. Unfortunately the beer quality in here was pretty poor on this visit, the service remains decent and the food looks fine. The prices seem to have shot up.

The Gunmakers is small pub located less than 2 minutes walk from The Craft Beer Co. There were 4 cask beers on when I visited, plus 4 keg options including two beers from the fantastically mediocre Meantime Brewery. As others have pointed out, the prices are pretty steep; I paid £2 for a half of beer by Windsor & Eton. The ambiance is fine, full of office types. The food looked good. Overall, this pub isnít much of a destination, though it wouldnít be a bad choice on a Holborn/Clerkenwell pub crawl.
