London’s oldest wine bar is celebrating its 125th anniversary! A magical place right in the heart of the city, buried deep beneath the streets only a small doorway and a crocked sign indicates its presence.
At first sight you would think that this old London wine bar is abandoned but once you go through those steep dark wood stairs you are mesmerized by the subterranean sight that awaits you.
It was once home to the famous Samuel Pepys in the 1680s. The enchanted ambiance and setting with candle lit tables, secret coves and caves makes Gordon’s Wine Bar one of central London’s best hidden gems.
Experience a Dickensian London, faded by time its wooden walls are covered in historical newspaper cuttings and memorabilia with rickety tables and chairs.
Gordon’s is famous for its great wines and homemade pork pies. The award winning wine list ranges from a selection of prestigious wines from the regions of France to South America and beyond. There’s also an unusual selection of fortified wines drawn directly from casks behind the bar.
