Crossing Food Hub Officially Opens at The Brunel 

Dining is on the up in the town centre with the official opening of The Crossing at The Brunel
To celebrate the occasion, Swindon’s newest and largest food hub played host to some of the town’s VIPs in the new eating space that's also designed for hosting events & entertainment.
The Crossing at The Brunel
The 20,000 sq ft food hub on the first floor of the upper mall, which is now home to a mix of independent restaurants and cafes and High Street eateries offering fresh food and drinks. These include Chopstix Noodle Bar, Subway, Triple Two Coffee, boutique bistro Eggelicious and the latest additions, Indy’s Vegan Kitchen and Soul Shack.
With more to come.
Swindon mayor Maureen Penny (pic. above) alongside Bernard Ferris, head of retail property for FI Retail Estate Management who own The Brunel, did the honours before heading up to The Crossing via the new escalator from Canal Walk.
Jane Stewart, Deputy Manager of The Brunel, says feedback from visitors to The Crossing has been overwhelmingly positive.
“People are telling us that they love the look and feel of it, really appreciate the wide choice on offer, and enjoy either being able to linger over a meal with friends or just check their emails over a quick coffee,” says Jane.
“We love the fact that several of the independents have already built very successful businesses locally and have chosen The Crossing as the next step in their growth.
For example, Triple Two Coffee have been so successful on the ground floor of The Brunel Plaza that they have opened a second coffee shop here, and Eggelicious has chosen The Crossing for its third restaurant, Eggelicious E3.
McCtaff’s originally specialised as a home-made cake caterer but has expanded to combine cake catering with a traditional English tearoom.
And Sweets Galore began in a unit in The Arcade before moving into a new unit at The Crossing, and also opening Desserts and More next store.
