Royal Exchange Grand Cafe and Bar

About Royal Exchange Grand Cafe and Bar

The Royal Exchange is one of the City’s most magnificent landmarks. Built in 1565, it has survived two fires and its grade 1 listed columns and arches are now home to luxury shops and the aptly-named Grand Café & Bar. In the airy, original courtyard a chic oval bar serves a superb selection of crustacea (the toasted lobster sandwich is a must). Above and all around is a series of wonderful stone-wall mezzanines housing two chic bars, a relaxed dining room and an unique private area. The modern Conran menus include breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Its location means the Grand Cafe attracts smart local business professionals, wealthy shoppers and tourists who use it as an atmospheric pit stop any time of the day.

Please be aware that the Royal Exchange Grand Cafe & Bar only accepts private group bookings of 8 or more through
