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.

This grand City venue with an imposing entrance hosts groups of up to 300 seated, 600 standing. Business diners, birthday parties, get-togethers, Christmas parties and corporate events are most welcome. The Threadneedle bar caters for events of 15 to 120 guests. A private area called the Cornhill is perfect for parties of eight to 20 wanting a formal meal, or groups of 20 to 70 reception-style. Full range of menus, from a la carte via set to drinks only. The sophisticated mezzanine bars serve very well as a relaxed pre and post meal meeting place. Facilities include wi-fi, a projection screen and sound system. Audio, lighting and flowers can also be arranged. Disabled access includes access to the lavatories and their new private dining area. Closed Saturday and Sunday.

Please note that Royal Exchange Grand Cafe & Bar do not take reservations for the main courtyard area. New Private Dining Room
