Located in one of the City’s most magnificent landmarks, The Royal Exchange Grand Café attracts a mix of smart local business professionals, shoppers and tourists who use it as an atmospheric pit stop any time of day. Built in 1565, The Royal Exchange has survived two fires and its Grade 1 listed columns and arches are now home to a selection of luxury shops and this great restaurant. Situated in the original courtyard, a chic oval bar serves a superb selection of crustaceans. Head chef Oliver Prince has combined his passion and enthusiasm for cooking with seasonal ingredients to create a simple, tasty and elegant menu. Popular dishes include the roast lobster thermidor with new potatoes and salad; the chargrilled sirloin steak with chips and Béarnaise; and the chocolate profiteroles.
