Gordon's wine bar

London, United Kingdom

Gordon’s Wine Bar is thought to be the oldest wine bar in London having been established in 1890. The bar is very much a family affair, owned by Wendy Gordon who is the wife of the late much loved Luis Gordon, and now overseen by Luis’ eldest son Simon. 

The bar is loved by old and young alike due to the totally unique atmosphere in which time seems to have stood still. As you enter the bar you find yourself in a room with old wooden walls covered in historical newspaper cuttings and memorabilia faded with age. Make your way to the cellar and you need to stoop to get to your rickety candlelit table – anonymity is guaranteed!

Most importantly, the award winning wine list is varied and full of interesting wines at very reasonable prices with some Sherries served from the barrel. Food comes in proper portions ranging from homemade pies to wonderfully mature cheeses. It is a perfect place to enjoy a glass or two of Sherry in London.

Our recommended Sherry Pairing

Camembert cheese and oloroso

The Oloroso has a lot of body and structure. It is a delicious dry wine that is explosive in flavours, so is ideal to accompany intense flavors such as Camembert cheese.
