More about the Gordon's Wine Bar
Home to Samuel Pepys in the 1680s, the building housing Gordonís is now home to a regular, thriving crowd of drinkers of all ages and all walks of life, united in their love of this unique venue and of good wine. Buried deep and dark beneath the streets with only a small doorway and a subtle sign indicating its presence, Gordonís Wine Bar is one of central Londonís best hidden gems. The subterranean setting is accessed by a steep, wood-panelled staircase which leads into a rickety old room plastered with centuries old newspapers cuttings and dusty wine bottles. Once youíve made the somewhat perilous descent, be prepared for a crowded crawl to the bar through throngs of office workers supping on glasses of vino. Having chosen your tipple from the award-winning wine list, head right to the back and find the low-ceilinged arches, under which tables and chairs huddle together, bathed in gentle candlelight. Youíll probably have to wait a while for a table, but thereís no great hardship in propping yourself up in a corner and waiting for one to become available or, alternatively, asking to share the corner of someone elseís. There's also a stretch of outdoor seating with brollies and heaters provided. Gordonís wine list includes a wide-ranging collection from the New and Old World, to suit any palate. The friendly Gallic bar staff know their stuff, so don't be afraid to ask. Sturdy tumblers of port or sherry served straight from casks behind the bar are an unusual but welcome detail as is the delicious, home-cooked food available (try a plate of pongy cheese, some pate or a hearty ploughmanís). The oldest wine bar in London, this friendly, family-run establishment has resolutely resisted change and its merit is demonstrated by its immense popularity. Thereís certainly not enough room to swing a cat here, and probably not even enough to open a newspaper, but this is all part and parcel of drinking at Gordonís. Enjoy, but remember youíll have to climb back up those steep stairs on your way out.

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if Iíd known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we werenít too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if thereís still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work
