The Weighbridge Brewhouse relaunched last week with a completely refurbished bar as well as changes to its food and drink menus – but with an interesting twist.

The new offering had input from the venue’s Facebook followers.

After apologising for previous changes that didn’t ‘hit the mark’, the restaurant and bar asked social media followers to suggest what items they should bring back and what they would like to see introduced.

Swindon Advertiser:

A number of the ideas suggested were implemented during the relaunch at the weekend, including the reintroduction of famed dauphinoise potatoes.

Not only has the food been refreshed, but also the drinks menu, with the bar seeing a cocktail menu introduced complete with strawberry daiquiris and After Eight drinks.

David Butcher, director at the Weighbridge Brewhouse, said: “The relaunch has been a wonderful event, allowing us to showcase the fantastic changes we’ve made, from the food and drink menus to the decor.”

Swindon Advertiser:

The bar has been overhauled with an illuminated tree at its centre, along with station clocks to represent the building's history as a train weighing station.

David added: “The event has also enabled us to reconnect with some of our valued customers past and present who we hope have enjoyed the changes, and we look forward to seeing many more of them over the coming months.

Swindon Advertiser:

“The icing on the cake has been the amount everyone has helped us raise for three amazing charities and we’d like to say a massive thank you.”

Alongside the relaunch, the venue raised £1,800 for Prospect Hospice, Jessie May’s Children’s Hospice at Home service and Bowel Cancer UK, via a raffle.
