Gordon’s ~ London’s Oldest Wine Bar

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.

They have maintained the original décor and sell only wine, whilst providing traditional and well priced food.

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! If the sun is out you can also sit outside in Watergate Walk and enjoy watching the world go by.

Their award winning wine list includes the following Champagnes

Gérard Loriot Cuvée Tradition 

From a small and exclusive family run vineyard this specially selected Champagne is of exceptional quality. With a rich golden colour it is floral and fruity on the palate with a smooth and beautiful aftertaste.

Moutard Cuvée Prestige

Creamy, biscuity and citrusy, baked apples in a glass. Award winning Champagne.

Moutard Prestige Rosé 

A lovely delicate colour of salmon pink, with aromas of strawberry fruit, good acidity and mouth filling bubbly richness.
