Look forward to a light afternoon of drinks at Gordon’s Wine Bar, one of the oldest wine bars in the world with vintages from France, South America, and beyond! There is also a selection of 'fortified' wines, which are drawn from casks behind the bar itself; these include sherries, ports, and Madeiras. Consider these or other wines as a way to wash down the buffet-style food, which includes simple and delicious salads, pies, and cheeseboards.
The ambiance at Gordon's only adds to the charm of the place. The bar is surrounded by old wooden walls covered in historical newspaper cuttings and memorabilia faded with age. Venture down to the subterranean room for a candlelit table or head to the terrace alongside the Embankment Gardens to sip and nibble the night away!
