Love it - my favourite place to go for drinks

Atmospheric with great selection of wines and tapas. It does get busy, but I've never failed to get a table.

This is a brilliant wine bar, so cosy with an unique atmosphere. Delicious food and a fabulous choice of wines, we had a bottle of desert wine with the cheese board. This place does get very popular but worth it. Can't wait to go back, would definitely recommend!

I've been here too many times to count and I love it. I love the atmosphere and the staff who are brilliant. If they know the answer re alcohol they'll tell you if not they'll find out. Always a friendly welcome and a great atmosphere

Gordon's is one of my favourite bars in London (OK the world), the atmosphere is always great and the setting is unique and beautiful. Its probably the only place I don't mind sitting outside in the middle of December, just remember to wrap up warm because there is never a guarantee of getting a table inside, unless you get there...

I have been to Gordon's wine bar several times and I have always really enjoyed the wine, food and atmosphere. I was completely shocked last weekend when a staff member asked me 'what the f***' I thought I was doing when I stood at a empty outside table waiting for my friends to come out. Obviously I asked how he... More

Excellent bar. Very cosy inside but only ever sit outside. The tables outside are always packed no matter what time of year! Everyone gets wrapped up and sits in the cold. Beautiful wine, large variety from reasonably priced to very expensive. The deli counter is quote expensive but it is fantastic - so many choices of cold cuts, cheeses, breads,... More

We come here quite often - it has plenty of space in the summer for a group to share a bottle of wine, and in the winter the bar is cosy. It can get busy - not surprising as the food is good value and tasty. I mostly have a selection of cheeses here with my wine when I come... More
