My sister recommended this wine bar and I am so glad we went! They have outdoor seating but what you really want to do is go downstairs into the "cave." The atmosphere is cozy with dark wood and a rounded stone/concrete ceiling. Order a bottle...More

I tend to push for a visit to Gordon's each time we are in London. The atmosphere is always good, good wine, and great cheese all on offer. Well worth your time and money

Interior of the bar is really cool and unique. Outdoor seating as well. Wonderful atmosphere. Food was delicious and they have plenty of snack options too. Definitely recommend this bar!

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...More

If you are looking for a unique place to have a glass of wine, Gordon's is the best! It is an extremely old wine bar that is basically untouched. They offer fantastic food plates and the atmosphere inside is one of a kind.

Hi, no need to book. Just turn up. It's best to come early on a Friday or Saturday if you want a table. Thanks for your enquiry!
