Wine and dine in a
This is the oldest wine bar in London established in 1890. The bar has quite a unique atmosphere, probably because it's not the typical wine bar most people have in mind.

Gordon's Wine Bar has been preserved to look exactly the way it was since its opening. The best part about this wine bar is that there's a "cage," which is the old wine cellar and you must book for a seat. If you didn't book for the "cage," you can still pick a spot inside the bar or outside the terrace. However, I will give anybody a heads up to be there early or you'll end up eating and drinking standing up.

The "cage"

Gordon's Wine Bar offers an extensive wine menu and it took me a long time to decide on what I wanted. I personally got the Paarl Heights, which is a fuller bodied white wine that has a crisp, tropical and citrus taste.

Apart from their extensive wine menu, they also have a food bar, which I personally enjoyed more than the wine. The food bar consists of a cold food menu as well as a hot food menu. The hot food menu changes on a daily basis while the cold food stays constant. My favourite was the Scotch egg, grilled mussels, sausages and barbecue ribs.

My friend and I loved going in the afternoon, relaxing with a few glasses of wine and some food to fill up our stomachs. It would be lovely to sit out on the terrace when London is not rainy, but also it's a great experience to dine inside the cellar.

Wine and dine it is.
