We often visit Gordons and it never disappoints. Experience the hidden gem, under the ground or on the open terrace. Our favourites are the Gordons Tawny or Ruby port and with the amazing selection of over 20 cheeses it never fails to delight us.

Excellently curated wine menu, tasty tapa options, friendly staff, and an incredibly unique ambiance provided by the location in a catacomb like space. Check it out but get there early and the tables fill up fast and free up slow.
