The Exchange


The Exchange

Come along and relax in a bohemian, friendly atmosphere at the Exchange.

The bar sells a range of drinks from real ale, cocktails, and fine wines to soft drinks, teas and coffees. Fill up on food including ciabattas or stonebaked pizzas, snacks and handmade cakes throughout the day, or pre-book a delightful vintage afternoon tea.

The Exchange hosts regular events including a monthly comedy club & networking morning, a weekly baby group and book group, and an annual beer festival - to name just a few. They have free wifi for all customers and a piano for anyone to come along and practice or perform. There is also a flourishing public book swap.

The venue has two function rooms that can host a variety of events from formal business meetings, hen parties, baby showers and big birthday parties. They offer free room hire and have no minimum spend obligation. The Exchange can provide catering for these events, tailoring the service to your needs and requirements.

Consider the exchange a surrogate living room– where you bring your friends, share some laughs, and have all the mess cleared up after you.
