Upham Pub Company has acquired the Weighbridge Brewhouse in Swindon, to bring its estate to 16.

The site hosts a bar and restaurant area as well as an in-house micro-brewery. Head brewers Mark Wallington and Jordan Wheeler brew and serve six Weighbridge Ales, with further plans for Upham to offer the beers across its estate in addition to Upham Brewery’s range. The micro-brewery also offers a take-away ale service.

Upham chief executive Chris Phillips said: “We are delighted to welcome The Weighbridge Brewhouse to the Upham family. We will ensure that the pub maintains its current operation, with the fantastic team remaining on board, and continues to offer its quality food, drink and welcoming atmosphere that its customers know and love.

“This is slightly out of our usual trading region, and provides a fantastic opportunity to branch out to areas further afield. It’s great to have an already established pub with a real community feel and fantastic heritage story - with their previous brewer owning the pub and his son Ashley now the general manager – and we look forward to a successful future for The Weighbridge Brewhouse.”
