We visited twice, once for wine (party of 6) in the evening air, and once for a quick supper (2 of us) in "the vaults". Thoroughly enjoyed and good value.

My friend took me to this bar after work one Friday evening. From outside you'd barely notice it, and you'd wonder where your going as you walk down the narrow stairs.
But inside this bar has great atmosphere, and decent wine. We couldn't get a table so found two chairs in the corner and soaked up the atmosphere.
We didn't eat here on this occassion, but some of the food going past looked superb.
This is not to be missed!

Husband introduced me to this place a number of years ago and now I'm hooked. Almost a hole in the wall it looks nothing from outside and I would not have given it a second glance. Wander down the steps and you enter an atmospheric cave of port and sherry delights. Brought our son here last weekend to celebrate his birthday and introduced him to some superb schooners of port a bit different to the dirty pints he is used to in some of the West Country bars. Loads of seating outside along the Embankment to enjoy watching the world go by and you can also grab a quick bite to eat should you wish to. Coming back to London for a concert in October and Gordon's will most certainly be on the agenda!

I came here on a saturday night, and it was very busy. We went to the outside part, which was huge, and takes up the whole of Watergate Walk on the edge of Embankment Park and they had an outdoor bar, and later an outdoor grill where you could get burgers and such. It had the atmosphere of a great bbq/garden party, as it was on the edge of the park and so was quite leafy. The wine was superb and not nearly as expensive as you would imagine.
The front entrance make it look tiny and old fashioned, and I had walked past it a hundred times without even noticing it. Now I will make a point of going there every time I am in London
