Looking for something close to the City Hotel, the Exchange looked the best of a number of similar places. Essentially it is somewhere between a bar and a restaurant. Instructions said to order food from the bar although in fact we were served at the table by the friendly and keen to please staff. The menu is good but we... More

This place was suggested by the B&B owner. We arrived at 5:30, just as it opened for dinner and discovered an early dining menu - it seemed to contain pretty much the same as the regular dining menu but at about 25% less cost. The dining room filled quickly so others were onto the deal. The menu is extensive -... More
