The woman who said the following sentence is a waitress in a restaurant in a horserace course. Did she mean that the room is normally for kitchen use, like weighing and preparing for food, and the working staff like her just use this place as their own relaxing area? or does "a weighing room" mean something else?
here is the sentence:
‘I’m afraid the Weighing Room, our relaxed dining area, is being refurbished right now, but there are stalls along the stands where you can get something to eat.’
