Gordon’s Wine Bar: Embankment’s Oldest Treasure20.01.2022
Gordon’s Wine Bar has quenched the thirst of wine lovers for over 130 years. Close to Covent Garden and London’s Theatreland, it is a hidden gem, just minutes away from Trafalgar Square between Charing Cross and Embankment stations. Renowned for its history, Gordon’s transports its guests into another era with a vaulted candlelit cellar and old oak barrels filled with sherries and port. With walls covered by old photographs and newspaper clippings of historic events, take a step back in time, escape the hustle and enjoy a huge selection of award-winning wines and great food.
Gordon’s is thought to be the oldest wine bar in London, established in 1890. The bar is very much a family affair, owned by Wendy Gordon, the wife of the late, much loved Luis Gordon, and now overseen by Luis’ eldest son, Simon. Over the past 10 years, Gordon’s has had to evolve to meet the demands of today’s world but has retained its unique, traditional Gordon’s style.
Outdoor seating under heated awnings provides an all year round al fresco experience. Choose from one of the many tables outside or tuck yourself away at a discrete, romantic cellar table. Gordon’s food menu offers more than 15 different cheeses, a selection of charcuterie and vegetarian and vegan options. There is something for everyone to enjoy. What better way to accompany world-class wine than with a great selection of sharing boards, snacks and home-made dishes.
As reservations are not taken, the best way to grab a table is to turn up early. You can learn more about Gordon’s Wine Bar here.
