Booked last minute for a Saturday night and given the impression that they could 'just' fit us in. How wrong we were. There were just enough people there to make it feel comfortable. We had a drink before dinner and spent few minutes studying the menu. Our order was taken......ooh....20 minutes later. No worries, we weren't in a hurry.
Table was fine. Service once we were seated was fine, maybe a tad too much of the...."Is everything OK?' Husband had the kidneys in mustard sauce as his starter which he was reasonably pleased with. My whitebait was also reasonable but nothing to sing about.
We both opted for the Top Hat Beef (Homemade)..... Tender pieces of topside, braised in a red wine & marinade (more like bisto to us) with herbs and subtle spices,(no evidence) slowly oven cooked with mushrooms (a few) & onions(??) and adorned with a puff pastry top hat. (if this was fresh puff pastry...my name's...take yer pick!).
We decided to pass on the puds, pay the bill ~ £50, including two glasses of house red & a pint & a half of lager and a tip.
Would we go there again? I can think of much better places that serve pub food.

Situated on the Melksham to Bromham road in the hamlet of Westbrook, the restaurant offers a very welcoming atmosphere. The menu covers a wide choice of meals that will suit most peoples tastes, Parking is adequate with spaes both at the front and rear of the building. I visited there for a birthday celebration with family and friends and will certainly return in the near future.

We have eaten at The Westbrook, which is located in the Westbrook hamlet of Bromham, some 5 miles south of Chippenham, many times over the last 15 years. The owners Bob and Tracey offer good wholesome food which has never failed in its quality and quantity. The Sunday lunches are extremely good, large portions of locally sourced meat and vegetables, all fresh cooked and tasty, best to book on a Sunday as it is rightfully popular. It has a very pleasant garden at the rear with some swings for children. If you are visiting the area you will be guaranteed a good meal and warm welcome, and a tasty pint of Wadworth real ale here.

We went as a large party of 12 to celebrate a friends birthday.The majority of us had steaks or mixed grills which were all enjoyed but 2 of us had the 'luxury fish pie'& were very disappointed at the lack of fish found amongst the large portion of potato,we should have complained at the time but as there were so many of us we let it go.Service was excellent & attentive & desserts were huge!We passed one round between us!
Am dining there again tonight,just 2 of us,so will update this later.
