Gordon’s Wine Bar, Villiers Street, WC2N 6NE

On the corner of Villiers Street and The Watergate, down the steps and it feels like a subterranean cave, nooks and crannies abound, small tables hidden away and a queue for cheese and the ‘jambon’.

‘No beer no spirits’ said the sign

‘We are a wine bar’

It’s busy with tourists or workers, probably both.

Jam packed is closer to the truth, inside and out, and it’s 5 o’clock on a Friday night in the middle of November.

It is worth a look in if only for the atmosphere but perhaps not after a walk and you’re thirsty and you want somewhere to sit down.

Best to try it at lunch time when the sun is shining and the walk has just begun – just a taste of an older London.

It is worth the experience.
