The house wine form the barrel was some of the best I've ever had. This place is a must go, and I can't wait to go back next time I am in London.

Gordon's was extremely local and a cool find. The inside is seemingly inside of a cave, with great wine, cheese, and company. A perfect place to escape from the rain and enjoy some tapas. Perfect location!!

This was one of my favorite places in London! The wine bar is actually an old, underground cellar. Very cozy and a great wine selection.

Another one of London's great hidden gems. An underground bar with buffet-style eating and fabulous wines. Great for an intimate lunch with friends. Not quite what I expected, but it was good nonetheless.

V informal and houses many types of people - students, professionals, actors, people finishing a day's work, and a few tourists. There are some seats, benches, and tables outside. Inside it's a cellar, it's old, and cosy. They sell wine because it's a wine bar.... More

What a wonderful place, great atmosphere and an eclectic selection of wines. And that's what this place is all about. Don't leave it too late to order food, it's popular and they stop serving relatively early. You can end up in a quiet nook all by yourselves, or sharing a table with another group. Either way it will be a... More

If you need somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of London, Gordon's is the place to be!! With a huge outside seating area, outside bar and a classic selection of wines (amazing red!) then you'll not be disappointed It's claimed to be the oldest wine bar in the world, and when you walk downstairs into the venue you feel...

This is where great wine selection, friendly service and good platters of meat and cheese blend all together to create a great atmosphere in the center of London.
