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.

Well an establishment I have been lucky enough to have known about and visited for over 20 years...from boy to man! This venue exudes charm, it is wonderfully civilised and yet remarkably relaxed, cosmopolitan but rustic, all in all, one delightful package. It is the epitome of London at its best maybe even Great Britain at its best, traditional, distinctive, charming and warm. Unbelievably I...more

Nice and cozy little bar with a huge collection of all kids of wine.

They also offer some pretty good cheese and small meals to accompany your wine. Also they have a grill outside that serves sandwiches and chips.

You can decide if you sit inside downstairs in the old vaulted cellar or enjoy the park atmosphere outside.more

I don't like wine and I LOVE this place. It's easy to miss from the outside because of its cruddy-looking facade, but once you step inside, you really feel (and smell) just how old this place is. This place is cosy, the caves really create a great atmosphere and according to my friends who do drink there, the wine is great! The outdoor area is also buzzing.

It's definitely worth a visit and...more

Right of the bat,...more

Obligatory tourist place if you like a) historic things b) wine c) caves. Yes.. If you want to try something different... It's the thing to do.

My friend sent me a list of must dos... The wine here starts at 5.5 pounds. Lots on the list.. We also got marinated olives. Olives were like another 3 pounds but good since I was drinking at 2 pm with having eaten nothing.

Sure there are lovely...more
