Had a fantastic meal here on Saturday, food and service were perfect, we were celebrating a birthday and they even put Happy Birthday on a dessert and brought this out to my brother which was a really great touch! There was live music also which just set the perfect atmosphere, I have been here several times now and can highly recommend.

I will not be visiting again whilst Upham are owners. I visited before Xmas and had a good meal so thought i would follow up on 15th Feb 20 and a total shambles. Entering the door there was a 2 piece combo who were supposed to provide ambience music. Somebody should have told them 120db is a tad loud.
We were seated upstairs with a number of other dinners (downstairs was nearly empty). I must admit sitting in the corner amid spare furniture of what is a massive empty pub was not good enough. I would have moved except for the empty seats were directly in line with the jet engine noise from the combo.
My food was ok, my partners was to put is mildly dreadful, not cooked correctly and served with a sort of "here it is" attitude. We didn't pay for her meal.
Summary
Nice building, rest is dreadful. Many more places to go AVOID AVOID AVOID until Upham sell on

We had booked a table for weeks and were seated upstairs where there were about 3 other full tables and just seemed as if we weren’t as important as all the other dinners downstairs

went for valentines day and the atmosphere was perfect! the food was amazing and very well cooked, and lots of thought has gone into it. There was no rush for us to leave the table and everyone was very friendly.

Having read Trip Advisor reviews before turning up we were a little concerned. There was absolutely no need for us to have any concerns. Service, ambiance, food was great. Only a minor criticism, we found the live music to be too loud that at times we couldn't hear the conversation between the 6 of us. Mentioned it to Olly our waiter and he arranged for them to turn it down a little. Would definitely go back!

Raw pan fried salmon. Did send it back and get a new one but the chef said it was supposed to be like that. Lost trust in the restaurant.

The vegetarian steak was made to look like a meat steak which put my daughter off meal. The roast chicken dinner was greasy gravy and tasteless rest of meal. For both dishes vegetables were cold and hard. It was suppose to be a celebratory birthday meal for my daughter very disappointed . When our plates collected and it was obvious we had hardly eaten meals nothing was said by staff to ask why we hadn't eaten meals. I suffer with anxiety so don't like to cause issues so we paid and left disappointed and hungry. When I spoke to other friends after our visit they had similar experiences and we agreed not to return.

We've been several times before, but not for a leisurely lunch. Everything was lovely, my only criticism is that there could be more choice on the set lunch menu.

Whilst the roast dinner was lovely, the dessert was stone cold. And the service was appalling.

We had a great evening at the Weighbridge. The staff were clearly very busy but kept serving with a smile and couldn’t have been any more attentive. The food was exquisite - my fish goujons as a starter were mouthwatering and the rack of ribs to die for! The rest of my party were equally happy and we all went home impressed by such a lovely evening.

We had an ok meal. I didn’t realise that if you go on a Sunday evening you’re only able to order from the Sunday lunch menu rather than than the normal menu. They had sold out of the lamb so we both ended up having a bog standard beef roast dinner. The price suited the meal but we’d gone out for our anniversary so we had hoped for something a little nicer than what we ended up having. It was nice food, just a little disappointing.

Beautiful gem of a restaurant in Swindon, not far from town centre.
Food was delicious, ambience was great... decor and live music.
I feel that experience was a little bit let down by service slower than we would expect, would have probably ordered more if not for the timing. That being said, it was a busy night with some birthday parties on a couple of tables.
I will definitely go again for the foodie experience, but probably pick a quieter day.

Last time I went there it was owned by previous owners, but sad to say didn't rate the food much very salty and I see the Booth seating had been replaced by tables at main front window, I liked the Booth seating made it cosy, and it was cold in there, we ate from lunch menu so perhaps this was aimed at cheaper dinning so I can't comment on main dinner menu but bit put off so doubt will return.

The weighbridge is still hit and miss, which is very disappointing.
The table was filthy and so was the floor. Jug of water had black fluff floating in it and Coke was so watery.
Nobody was in restaurant and plenty of staff to clean, so no excuses.
Feel again we have paid out a lot of money for little return.

The food was excellent but the service left a lot to be desired. For 1.5 hours not one person came to our table to ask if we were ok, if the food was ok, if we wanted another drink, to top up drinks etc. Just basic stuff. We wouldn’t come again.

Would recommend for food and ambience but not for service, went in a group of 4 several days before christmas, the restaurant was nearly half full and there were 3 serving the food and drink, 2 of which were too young and inexperienced, slow and gormless. the lady in charge was very good but needed help, we waited far to long in every aspect of being served throughout the whole meal.

lovely food although after seeing 3 courses on the website for £15 and arriving at the restaurant to find this wasn't the case due to christmas was disappointing , surely the lunch menu and prices should be amended on the web site. also after sitting at the table for our 1.15 sitting we were still waiting for pudding at 2.50!!!

Surprisingly cosy for such a huge building. Enjoyed the paddle of on-site brew beers (even if the pale did taste strangely almondy!). Food brought before drinks, but that disappointing error was acknowledged by discount, so fair enough. Food only stopped from full 5-star rating by being a little inconsistent in temperature. Overall though very enjoyable and will certainly return if in area

This place has gone down hill since the new owners took over. Serving burnt bread and the service was so slow... will not be going back!!! Stay away.
