Lovely wine bar, busy, but good value for money with a super cool/spooky atmosphere!! The cheese and meat selection is also great...specially the Ham hock! One of my favourite spot in London.

Visited with a friend who knows London very well and this is the type of pub easily missed. Very authentic old pub with the old cellar housing small tables and lit with candles which makes it very atmospheric. Lots of other seating outdoors. Reasonable prices for bottles of wine and the food looked interesting. Well worth a visit if your... More

This is the second time we have visited this place after being recommended it by our daughter. We love it. Got there early,12 o'clock, to make sure we had an inside table even though it was a nice sunny day. We love the atmosphere inside with all the candles lit etc. We started off with a nice bottle of chilled... More

On arriving having not been there before and unsure about what to do stood at he bar were a rather rude female thrust a wine menu at me and said look at that!... More

This is by far one of the coolest bars I've been to. The cave like room with their rickety tables and eerie candle light creates an amazing ambience. The wine and food prices are reasonable and the wine list especially is of course extensive. They also make their own sherry kept in barrels behind the bar. Must get there early... More

A must do- be you a group of friends catching up after work, a couple wanting to sneak into one of the dark corners to share secrets or solo visit to drink in the atmosphere ( and the wine!) They do do food... But I have to say the open layout of it; where you help yourself or get server... More

I've been going to Gordon's for the past 8 years and this year I took my new partner there as part of her birthday celebrations. As usual, Gordon's didn't let me down. The food was great, the wine was good (suitable for the occasion) and the atmosphere is excellent. Easy to get to, out the side exit of the Charing... More

Gordons never lets you down. Great wines, great atmosphere, always a good night out. Definitely worth getting a table as early as poss cos it often gets crowded, but...love it here every time!

Popped in here for a post-dinner nightcap. Managed to find a table straight away and settled down with colleagues over a good valued bottle of red. Great atmosphere until "last orders" when lights went up, candles were extinguished and within 5 minutes we were back in Villiers street !

Cheeses, I just love this place ;) Had a great wine and some lovely cheeses (three big ones, and bread for only £15, a nice botle of wine for £19. Great!!). We were two sharing and skipped dinner, the cheeses was enough!
