Recently the public had requested him to take foie gras off the menu due to the morality of the product. After reluctance people started cancelling tables. His hand was forced. His comments on the issue showed his lack of respect for the produce he serves, also condoning battery farmed chickens and eggs. His lack of respect for the public and... More

I've visited the Weighbridge a few times and to be honest I wouldn't have returned a second time except for occasions with friends etc that I have not been responsible for organising. The venue is absolutely stunning inside but for me that really was the best part. The service was simply dreadful, slow and surly and sadly the food, on... More

I come here whenever I have visitors coming to Swindon, because I am guaranteed a decent steak, good wine list and friendly service, and I can't really ask for much more. And on top of this, the microbrewery attached is really impressive, producing some great local ales. 4* rather than 5* because sometimes service is a bit slow, and the... More

If you haven't been here before be aware the main dining room is cavernous (and noisy as a consequence) - if you want an intimate tête-à-tête you should ask to sit upstairs. As it was I was having lunch with a friend with a lot of gossiping to catch up on and so I'm sure we contributed to the decibel... More

Had an excellent Sunday lunch, not cheap but very good quality. Started with one of their own brewed beers, really nice. Service was good and it is such a beautiful building, tastefully decorated. Will be returning.

Food is always amazing, fillet steak is the best I've ever had, and the Banofee Pie for dessert is brilliant. If you want a more intimate dining experience ask to be seated upstairs as it feels more cosy, however for larger parties downstairs is great. People say the service is slow, but who wants to be rushed with a lovely... More

Best fresh cooked meal in town! Very friendly and helpful staff! Most defo would recomand! For a night out with friends or family. To propose or just enjoy a drink at the bar it's the place to go.

I have been keen to try the Weighbridge for a while, having been a huge fan of the Three Crowns in Brinkworth, the owners last restaurant. I ate here with a colleague at lunch time. We chose the lunch menus at £12.50, which seemed appropriate although I was disappointed to see that many of the meals were heavy, stodgy food... More

Been meaning to visit for a while and we weren't disappinted but for some reason we won't be rushing back! Just can't put my finger on it but I have had food much the same at a much less price! £7 for 7 olives!!! Really?
