Among the most praised of London pubs for beer and food is the Gunmakers Arms in Clerkenwell. The district was once famed for its healing medicinal springs. The Gentry resorted to them for solace and improvement – and the Gunmakers Arms will provide that on the evening of February 29. It is offering 4 courses accompanied by a selection of five ales.
The Gunmakers Arms features in the Good Beer Guide and the CAMRA Guide to London’s Best Beer Pubs & Bars for its exceptional Beer standards. Its chef-prepared meals are praised by media writers. Come along to discover why this recognition is so justified.
The pub has a policy of constantly rotating its beer choice to favour exciting new products and satisfy customer curiosity. So the exact beers can’t be detailed in advance. But award-winning Ales from Norfolk’s Wodforde’s and Warwickshire’s Purity are often available along with London microbreweries such as East London Brewing and Redemption.
