Good evening out

Tried to book here several times, they are often full so try and make a booking. It was worth the wait, the resturant has a nice feel and good atmosphere. Our table was in the middle so it was a bit noisey, next time I would ask for a table at the side. Three vegetarian choices offered. I had... read more

My partner and I thought we would have a nice anniversary meal at the Weighbridge. How disappointed we were. The staff was very abrupt and rude. Food ok but very over priced. Would never go back there again.

The Weighbridge is always pretty packed in my experience, so probably best to book if you want to sample its delights. The food is of the very highest gastropub quality. It's not exactly cheap with some of the mains touching £40 (£60 for the Chateaubriand), but there is a light lunch menu with mains only £12.50. I use the word... More

My wife and I have visited the Weighbridge Brewhouse on many, many occasions since it was opened and as such we have really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere over the years although at times it has been a little disappointing..... Today was very much a BIG disappointment as they appear to have lost their way somewhat. To celebrate my... More

We were on business dinner and overall experience was very good. There is a good selection of spirits and beer, friendly bar person and lovely floor staff. I am vegetarian and there wasn't much choice for me, it is a very 'meaty' restaurant. I would never go there myself, but the food is exceptional, I must admit. Portions are rather... More

Fantastic food, very good service, lovely atmosphere we were a big group and were handled perfectly all got our food at the same time and all hot, struggled to finish the large portions. Live music added to the relaxed evening would definitely recommend & will be returning.

Went with a group of business colleagues and had an excellent evening. Great selection of real ales. Amazing Steak, Lobster, Prawns and Crocodile. Food is highly recommended and the service was first class. Friendly and efficient. I will certainly book again next time I am in Swindon

We have been to this restaurant a number of times and always had very good food but depending on what day we have been the service is not always that good we waited for over an hour once they did apologise and give us free drinks but we had our grandchildren with us so it wasn't ideal- overall though a...

I have used the Weighbridge a few times for business lunches. The lunchtime menu is wholesome, well presented and tasty. The beer tasters are a great idea, especially for lunch. It can get quite busy at lunch, so it is always a good idea to book ahead to avoid disappointment. Sometimes, the service can be a bit slow, but good,... More
