Review: The Gunmakers


From the team that brought you Nine Lives, renowned drinks agency Sweet&Chilli, Gunmakers is a versatile blend of  Asian inspired cuisine making use of seasonal, British produce and bold flavours.


Situated in Clerkenwell, less than a 10 minute walk from Farringdon or Chancery Lane station.

Address: 13 Eyre St Hill, Clerkenwell, London, EC1R 5ET

The Vibes?

With foliage and lanterns hanging from wooden beams overhead, this is a place to get cosy under thick blankets by the heaters and sip on owner Tom Soden’s legendary hot buttered rum this winter.

What we ate & drank:

Gunmakers offer a selection of small plates with a veggie and asian focus.

We had:

  • King January cabbage with chilli, mint and ginger
  • Crispy tofu knots with sweet and spicy sauce
  • Bean and lentel curry pigs with tamarind sauce

Then we went for the Confit Duck which was just beautiful!


We had to go for the rhubarb and blood orange crumble- It was so fresh and perfect.

Our Thoughts?

Love this hidden gem hidden in the heart of Farringdon.

Highly recommend going for lunch and checking it out! They do great cocktails too!
