One cannot book for here except when there is a larger party of people BUT if you queue the food is worth the wait. It is just a few hundred yards from the iconic Peace Bridge , the Guildhall and the Tower Museum.

Excellent food service and ambience. Great location. The Exchange doesn't take bookings unless it's a large party, but you can have a drink while you wait. Waiting time is quite reasonable.
