We favour the simple things in life; good conversation, good wine and good food

Simply, we share the food and wine we love to eat and drink – which is exactly what you’ll find here at Gauge.

Taking inspiration from the bentwood chairs of a classic Parisian bistro and the warmth and conviviality of an Italian trattoria, our roots are proudly European: simple, honest and approachable (but able).

Be it a speedy panini for lunch or a juicy steak frites for dinner, we bring unpretentious, friendly dining to the table. Stop for a glass, stay for a bottle (we won’t tell anyone).
