Gordon's Wine Bar


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.

Easy to walk past this quaint little place just up from Embankment Station - tucked away down a little alleyway next Embankment Gardens, Gordons Wine Bar fits in well with the very Dickensian feel of this area (Temple always worth a stroll around for some proper old London town vibes!)

Specializing in a great selection of wines (you guessed it) there's something for every price tag and...more

Definitely a big hit with the locals, this place is popping after...more

You know you are lucky if you manage to find a seat in this tucked away little wine bar right on the doorsteps of Charing Cross station.

Once seated and with a drink in hand you will appreciate the ambience and buzzy nature of the bar.

The bar holds a lot of history as its one of the longest running establishments in London.more

Great spot for a drink. If you are looking for something a bit different with some history, then this is your place. It can be a tight squeeze, but that's half the charm. We started off drinking outside as it was a warm evening and then we were lucky enough to get a table inside. Definitely a great place if you have visitors and want to take them somewhere different. It is really close to...more
