Newest Review: ... ceilings are very low in places and most people have to stoop to get around but this just adds to the experience. There are numerous signs around warning you to keep your belongings close to you at all times as it is so dark down there that it would be easy for thieves and pick pockets to steal your bag/wallet/phone. There are specially made hooks underneath most of the table to hang your ... more

I would never go to London without visiting Gordons wine bar. If you didn't know it was there it is very easily missed as it looks very small and understated from the front. The front is quite dark with a sign on the front saying Gordons wine bar a standard size front door. You could easily walk past as it doesn't look much at all from the outside and in fact looks a bit shabby. It is in Villiers Street right by Embankment Tube Station so is very easy to get to.

This is the first port of call for friends of mine visiting London as it really gives you an olde worldy feel, and you completely lose track of time when your inside. You would'nt really know Gordon's wine bar was at the bottom of Villiers Street near Embankment station, unless you noticed all the people drinking wine in the park next to it after work. I didnt know it was there until I was introduced to it on a first date. It is based in the cellar and features underground railway arches that you can sit under. The wine list is very extensive, and the staff very friendly if your not sure what to choose. They also serve a buffet style food, although I've never eaten here. Read the complete review

About half way down the Street between Charing Cross and Embankment Tube station, is Gordon's Wine Bar, which is an excellent place to meet up with people either at lunchtime or in the early evening. The bar consists of a number of tables set in a former wine cellar, with sawdust on the floor. They sell good wines in generous measures and also have a variety of Ports and some minimal food (salads etc) as well. While it can be a bit noisy and crowded that just adds to the atmosphere. ...
