John Gordons

Wine Bar in Cheltenham

This elegantly low-key wine-and-spirits bar, in a handsome stone arcade, delivers a wonderful globetrotting selection of whiskies, gins and wines, all accompanied by cheese boards, charcuterie platters and other light bites (£2.50 to £14). Carefully chosen international wines, ideally enjoyed on the convivial outside terrace of a sunny afternoon, cost £20 to £25 by the bottle, £7.50 by the glass.
