Loved my trip to Gordon's having heard much about it. Great wines, nice buffet style food. Particularly enjoyed the pie. Will certainly come again.

Although the place is a bit crowded and it kind of sucks to be in there if you don't have seats, the place is pretty awesome overall. Great range of wines, VERY tasty, reasonably priced and generous servings of tapas. Great atmosphere inside in winter - I bet it's great in summer with the outdoor seating when not freeeeeezing.

Gordon's is a great place to visit for a drink of vino and a cheese platter when uptown. It's right next to Charing Cross Station so is perfectly positioned if visiting Trafalgar Square or going to see a show. Inside it is really cool; it's underground and there are lots of little cubby holes. There is also an outside area... More

I have been going to Gordon's for a while now and each time I go it seems to get busier and busier. This time we sat outside and managed to get a few chairs. I have always enjoyed coming here but the grumpy bar staff could be a little more welcoming, i understand that they are very busy but I... More

Kind of relaxing place to have some good wine and a meal. Love the cave-like interior, but prefer the exterior tables.

Went here quite often with friends. We really enjoy it here if we are looking for a relaxed night out instead of the usual party ruckus. The wines are amazing, and many choices, for every palet there is a perfect wine It is always crowded and inside of the bar is quite dark, it used to be a wine cellar... More

This was a great place to stop for lunch and a glass of wine. Atmosphere was wonderful a lot of history in the actual wine cellar, my son is a chef in London and he recommended this place. It did not disappoint.

You need to go to this wine bar, even if it is just to see its location. You enter on the main street level, and after a few flights of stairs you are underground in a "cave" like area, lit completely by candles. AMAZING!

We were lucky to have some friends in London who knew this place, since it is quite hidden (but still very close to public transport). Beneath a bar, in this cellar the atmosphere was awesome. Imagine a low ceiling, candles, wooden chairs and red wine. Also the food is pretty good, and it goes well with the wine!
