Come on then, lets have some recommendations. My wife is making me leave the house for a birthday meal so need to choose somewhere, ideally in Swindon, or not far out. Around Blundson would be acceptable too.
Miller and Carter is an option but been there done that....
Weighbridge is a no, it was terrible the last time i went
Curry, as much as i would be happy with one is out.
Italian, meh
Chinese, to my knowledge all Chinese restaurants in Swindon are just average.

I dislike eating out, but we have a child free weekend and apparently its what couples do.

Red lion at Cricklade? There's also a superb thai restaurant there (but will need booking in advance).

Is that the Jicsaw? Might be a shout, forgot about that one.

 My last foodie foray back in Jan was the Chop House in Wood Street. It was good.

Been there, wasn't impressed. In fact, my meal was pretty bad.

Is Moshan Island Grill still in Old Town? Very good food, and very strong punch.

If you want to go a bit further afield, I was in the Red Lion at East Chisenbury a couple of weeks back for a quick lunchtime pint, but no food.  It's got a Swindon post code, and a Michelin star.... has accommodation also. Bit posh for my tastes, but I know some people like that sort of thing.

Another vote for the Moshan Grill, great food.

A bit further out, I would highly recommend the Falcon Inn at Poulton.
Best pub food I've had in this area by miles.

The three crowns in Brinkworth was always really good, haven't been for a few years though..  Not the cheapest, but always good food..

Moshan is shutting soon, if it hasn't already.

I liked Old Town Thai when I went there last year. I mainly eat Italian when I go out though, so that'll be little use
