Gordon's candle-lit low-ceiling cellar bar is a time warp. They've been serving fine wine and fortified wines (no beer or spirits) since 1890 and it looks like it.

Two glasses of good house wine will set you back close to £10. Ports & sherries in barrels to write home about. Sparking wines etc to fizz up your mood.

Tons of tables & seating outside under umbrellas for the overflow and sufficient staff to cope with the demand.

Worth a visit. And if you're lucky to snag a table for two in the cool, quiet, dark 'deep end' of the cellar you'll quickly discover there's no better place to make indecent proposals, or plot the overthrow of the state.

Gourmet Chick - 7/10

Thursday, April 28, 2011 - The wine list has a host of options by the glass or by the bottle and there are also serious barrels of port behind the bar. We chose a bottle of Chianti and the cheese board was an incredibly barginous 11.25 for a choice of three cheeses, bread, pickled onions and cornichons. You just specify to the bar staff whether you want hard cheese, blue cheese, cheddar etc. There are also some hot food options and other goodies like pork pies and scotch eggs...Gordon's can get incredibly hot and packed and probably has serious health and safety issues with those low ceilings and lack of exits. It is great fun though and I can't believe I waited so long to try it out.
