Established in 1890, Gordon's Wine Bar is possibly the oldest wine bar in London. Still family run, signs of the bar's long history can be found everywhere, from the cellar and candlelit tables, to the aged wooden walls covered in memorabilia and old newspaper cuttings. The varied wine list includes sherry, port and Madeira.

I don't like wine. Let's start there. So this place isn't the best choice for me. I came her with my parents, they love it here, I don't.
The food is okay. You pick your meat and then you fill your plate with a few different types of salady stuff. Nothing special. i wish I'd got the cheese board as that actually did looked yummy.
