This place has cosiness and winter written all over it although in the summer they have lots of wine barrels outside that everyone uses as standing tables to have drinks.
In the winter you go inside and downstairs into the cellar which is really cosy. It is dark with candles and wooden furniture and there is a big queue at the bar where you can get your bottle of (good) wine. They do not serve at the tables, nor do they serve food (eating is cheating..) However….They have a counter / bar where you can order delicious cheese platters with French guys standing behind the counter to give advise. You can’t make reservations at Gordon’s Wine Bar, it’s a self seating bar; so get your bottle of wine and cheese platter and find yourself a seat… I find this place extremely cool…47 Villiers Street | Tube: Charing Cross |+442079301408 | ££ | Website
