Just the other day John Brunton came to visit us at Gordon’s and we spent a lovely lunch time listening to great anecdotes from his time as part of Gordon’s staff. John has worked with Luis Gordon, Simon Gordon’s father, and has been associated with the bar since the 1970’s.

He now is a wine and food journalist for The Guardian based in Paris and Venice, more excitingly he has recently participated in the writing of Lonely Planet’s book ‘Wine Trails’,  he has written all the chapters on France, Italy and South Africa. For further information and to purchase the book please click here.

We wish him all the best on his travels and writings and hope to see him soon here at Gordon’s again.
