The Libertine


In the place where the very first Royal License for alcohol was granted, the vaults of The Royal Exchange once again play host to the spirited talk and lively tippling of merchants, heralds and rogues from London and beyond. Enjoy beers, wines and cocktails under the historic arches where nobles and traders alike would rub shoulders after a hard days trading. And the bottle of whiskey you bought on your last visit? Waiting for you in your own safe, under lock and key.

Formerly famed for the simple pies and smoked fish that would sustain a days trade, The Royal Exchange is now home to two welcoming restaurants. Enjoy wholesome seasonal fare using the best quality produce from lunch till late, with of snacks for the table, starters, seafood dishes, a selection of dry-aged steaks and grande cuts alongside traditional mains and desserts.


Join us from 6pm every Saturday in our Grade 1 listed vaults for Soul In The City, an evening of exquisite dining, flowing drinks and vibrant live entertainment from some of the very best in the business, who’ll be filling the air with the timeless sounds of Soul, Motown and Funk.

Start your evening in the restaurant, indulging in oysters, scallops, lobster and steak, or find a place at the bar with a glass of something ice cold and let our entertainers pull you up onto your feet with high energy hits from the likes of Diana Ross, The Jacksons, Stevie Wonder and countless other legends.
