We go to the Exchange for saturday breafast at least once a month...Its inexprensive and reliable... I always have the vegetarian option... It's enough to set you up for the day... We tend to go at about 11am... service always prompt and food freshly cooked... No thrills, just a good honest fry-up at a cost that doesn't break the bank...

A quick drink on a Saturday evening. Always busy, a popular Wetherspoons venue. It is starting to look a little tired and does make you wonder why the chain decided to shut the newer Wetherspoons venue in town. There's no doubt this venue needs a refurb but, it's consistent with a lot of Wetherspoons across the country. Good selection of... More

So because my girlfreind didnt want it I asked for a full refund. Then only got 11 pound back. I told them it was 18... More

Called en route back to Nottingham . Polite staff but oh dear is in need of a clean up. All the upholstery was dirty and obviously stained. We put Monday menus down to sit on. Tim please take note.

Wetherspoon standard menu but well cooked and nicely presented. Cheaper then our local one in Barnstaple! Staff friendly and helpful. Especially enjoyed the mulled cider!. Ideally situated near our hotel - ate here as much better value for money then hotel.

Called in at The Exchange again for lunch, it hasn't changed much over the years, still a bit dark and could do with a makeover. However the staff are very polite and friendly and I can honestly say that the 14oz steak I had was on of the best I have had in a long time, tasty and cooked just... More

I don't often get annoyed with how a place is run but this was poor. I had a morning meeting thinking lets have a coffee and breakfast. The place was under staffed and didn't know were to turn. Help yourself coffee there wasn't any, managed to order bacon and egg sandwiches took ages and wasn't great I left mine. It... More
