The Weighbridge Inn

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu

Parts of this whitewashed free house date back to the 17th century, when it stood adjacent to the original packhorse trail between Bristol and London. While the trail is now a footpath and bridleway, the road in front (now the B4014) became a turnpike in the 1820s. The innkeeper at the time ran both the pub and the weighbridge for the local woollen mills – serving jugs of ale in between making sure tolls were paid. Associated memorabilia and other rural artefacts from the time are displayed around the inn, which has been carefully renovated to retain original features, like exposed brick walls and open fires. Up in the restaurant, which used to be the hayloft, the old roof timbers reach almost to the floor. The inn prides itself on its decent ales and ciders, and the quality of its food, with everything cooked from scratch. Starters to get the taste buds going could be Welsh rarebit or ham hock terrine. The hearty main courses include a 16oz T-bone steak and chips; pan-seared lamb rump; and the Weighbridge burger. Lighter meals are available, such as salads, ploughman’s lunch and doorstep sandwiches. The Weighbridge is also the home of ‘the famous 2 in 1 pies’, one half containing a filling of your choice from a selection of seven (such as steak and mushroom, or chicken, ham and leek) and topped with pastry, the other half home-made cauliflower cheese – all cooked to order and available to take away or even bake at home. Typical desserts are gooey chocolate brownie; fruit crumble; and crème brûlée. From the patios and sheltered, landscaped garden the Cotswolds are in full view.
