Thursday night at The Weighbridge had a lovely, nicely busy atmosphere. Service was attentive , pleasant and professional. Nice selection of starters/ nibbles and mains. Fish was nicely presented and tasty.

I've been to the Weighbridge often in the week and it is consistently very good. Food choice is good. Service has been excellent every time. Had the steak deal tonight which was delicious, after a sharing platter which all enjoyed.

Menu choices are excellent...veggie and gluten free etc. Clearly marked.
Service faultless.
Food excellent and plentiful.
Historical venue with loads of character....the clue is in the name.....and refers to railway engines and rolling stock.
Just a great evening out and visit on a Friday or a Saturday and you'll be entertained with a backdrop of live music...pianist, guitarist, harpist or a fabulous female vocalist....
It's a place not to miss...

After looking at the menu i went for the two course meal,
The chorizo scotch egg with roasted pepper coulis & petit salad was a great start too my meal.
It was only seconds away from being a perfect egg,Masterchef would of been happy.
So it WAS worth the wait,So next time chef or chef's don't rush as i am wanting too see how good this new team of chef's are !.
My main meal was the roast sirloin of oxford beef with roast potatoes a yorkshire pudding vegetables and roasting juices.It was a very nice meal But i could of been so much better if there was no string that tied the beef when it was roasting in the oven still on my plate !,vegetables was blanched.So if you like very hard veg your be fine.
The roasting juices on the plate had split so its been on a hot plate too long or too much fat in the juices,Potatoes was small but the meat made up for that,Pink and full of flavour and NOT chewy.
In short A year ago i had a sunday dinner from hell and the manager at the time was just full of BS.
I will be back again as the food is better service is better and still a very good pint of ale.
One of the best in swindon, Welcome back The weighbridge brewhouse you have been missed.

We enjoyed a lovely romantic dinner for two last Saturday. We loved the building, it’s decor and atmosphere, and the meal was absolutely delicious. Even when our coffee order was initially forgotten, we received 3 apologies from 3 different people which took away totally any frustration on our behalf. We would recommend the venue to friends and will be going back with our 19 year old daughter who we think will love it

Great food great place great staff. hated the colour of the chairs didnt leave a tip as served by 5 different people so didn’t know who would get the tip or how it would be broken down. Other than the chairs and the various servers we absolutely loved it food,service and ambiance were brilliant.

Fantastic afternoon had by all. When you’re introducing your girlfriend to your mum, you want everything to go well.
The team were brilliant. Friendly, engaging, helpful and importantly patient, we had a great time.
The food too was fantastic - the other half said that the beef in her roast was the best she had had when out for dinner. She’s right, the mains were excellent, as were the desserts......I actually wanted a second Sticky Toffee Pudding.
Looking forward to another visit.

It was good. The startes were small but very tasty. The mains are ok. They took very long to serve in plate ( 20 minutes +).

The presentation of the drinks was great.

The chap that welcomed us was really personable and accommodating, then I'm afraid it went down hill from there. Once we were seated, 10 minutes later we had to call over a waitress to order some drinks as they hadn't been over once, and a group of them were stood near us for a while just chatting. When they were called over they weren't particularly friendly. Our starters were tasty, I'll give you that, I had the beetroot which was forgiven for being small, because it tasted good and there was a variety of tastes and textures on the plate. We were, however, all disappointed with our mains. For the price they lacked finesse, and we all expected something a bit different to what we received. Nothing resembled what the descriptions bigged them up to be. My husband had the duck which was a bit chewy, and the daufinoise potatoes were hard and not very creamy. He chose it for them and was disappointed. My mother ordered the swordfish, when it came out they said "the swordfish salad"... My mum wasn't expecting a salad, and was a bit flummoxed. Even though the items listed were on the plate it didn't sell itself as a salad on the menu, she'd have chosen something else. The chilli dressing was a bit bland as well. My dad ordered the steak, which was also disappointing for the price. The special butter was also really bland & oily, he wished he'd gone for good old garlic butter. I ordered the pork, which just looked a bit rubbish to be honest, I was expecting some kind of sticky/crispy crust, although the pork was soft, the fat on top was just that - fat. Flobby and soggy. The noodles were watery, overall the flavours were OK...But just that - OK. The wine was nice. But we've had that before and knew it would be. We were really looking forward to going back to the Weighbridge, we live locally & I've been following the pictures of the food and the reviews on social media, which looked to have been improving. Unfortunately you didn't get my vote. Waitress training might help.

The menu has much improved over the last few weeks. We had noticed that the food quality had gone down over the last year or so, but it seems as though this has greatly improved.

As a group we were happy with the food in general - I was the only British person at the table, my guests seemed impressed by the quality of British food. My slow cooked braised beef was a lot tougher than I expected, it was tasty but I wouldn't have it again. For Dessert we had 2x sharing platters, brilliant idea and I enjoyed all 5 of the desserts! Although our table was booked for 6.45pm we did not seat ourselves until after 8pm and the staff did not pressurise us to be seated, it was a nice evening so we enjoyed the outdoor seating area instead. I hope to be back soon

The complaint was all about the food . Staff were lovely although didn’t offer a refund or replacement meal. I wouldnt return especially Not for a roast - there was no vegan option so the veggie was adapted , leaving a small veggie/falafel burger which is poor for a restaurant of this so called quality, no vegan starter or desert so vegans don’t have anything to chose from at all ! Artichoke on the website Sunday menu was not available. Beef was like leather and table next to us returned it . We had one vegan in our dinner party and three beef eaters - so overall not happy with food. Veg may as well have been raw as was so hard - my 94 year old father hardly ate anything as not able to . Over priced and would not return.

The service was great, staff were smiling and friendly, the restaurant was clean and beautifully decorated. The only downside was was lamb, two of us ordered a lamb dinner which was very fatty and looked like a mushy blob of meat just thrown on the plate but the rest of our dinner was lovely and can only imagine this this as a one off? But that was minor compared to the rest of our time there and would return again! :)

Food was very good but service left a lot to be desired.
Service was incredibly slow - we sat down for lunch at 12:45 and finally left at 4pm (only a table of 3 adults and 2 children so not a large party). Part of my meal was missing which I immediately pointed out to the server who said “oh ok” and promptly disappeared never to be seen again. At no point during our meal did anyone check on whether everything was ok and there was a distinct lack of staff on the floor to be able to beckon someone. I never got the missing part of my meal. At the end I had to get up and find someone at the bar so I could pay the bill as no one was around to ask for it. The restaurant wasn’t very busy at all by this point.
A real shame as the food was excellent and the place itself is lovely.
