My fiancée took me here first to start our secret all day anniversary adventure. The place is one of the most unusual bar settings found underneath London's busy streets. All most cave like & peculiar, we sipped our lovely wine & ate a lovely lunch (the pork pie slab & salad is delicious) in the unique setting. Will definitely return.... More

Gordon's wine bar is one of my favourite bars/pubs in London. Variety of wine, friendly atmosphere, always full of people, very lively.... Basically, all we need to have a great night out. Highly recommended.

Great in winter, you can huddle in the cellar like feel of the bar itself, and lovely on a summer evening in the outdoor area. It gets very crowded after work so get there early! Beer enthusiasts - serves mostly wine (duh).

This little 'pirate bar' as a local referred to it is one of the best restaurants I've ever been in. Rumor is that the bar was a favorite for pirates, roughens, and scalawags alike in it's heyday. Ha, I can believe it! It is just a small little place downtown, if you weren't looking for it, you would definitely miss... More

Wonderful and full of character with the best wine choice in the capital. We went on a very hot day and the outside tables were full. Inside was dark, candlelit and cool. We had a cheese plate 2 large prices of a selection of cheese baguette and help yourself to salad for £9.50 barga

The place is just amazing and full of history!! It is such a beautiful atmosphere, we couldn't have been more happy! Table and... More

Always a popular place, this cosy, cave like, atmosphere filled wine bar is a great place to enjoy a glass (or bottle!) - but it can be difficult to find a table or even space to stand due to how small it is. This is not a problem in summer when you can congregrate outside in the sunshine. Staff are... More

I love Gordon's and have been going for many years. The atmosphere is great and its setting unique. There is a fabulous choice of wine and the food is great. However , their opening hours are a bit outdated. Having been to the theatre we popped into Gordon's on the way home. We had only had our drinks in our... More
