About the Pub

Built in 1832, the name refers to the exchange of the royal mail by horse drawn coach, which ceased with the advent of steam. Take a look at the punning pub sign which tells a different story! This is a small, traditionally furnished street corner London boozer tucked away in a side street a few minutes away from Paddington GWR station, with Edgware Rd underground stations and bus routes nearby. Small outside drinking area on pavement. Pizzas and nachos available.

As of 2021 the pub is under the same management as the Priory Arms SW8 and Grosvenor Arms SW9, both noted for their interesting range of beer. One handpump ale in this pub at date of this entry plus about 12 keg beers. The owners are interested in Belgian beer and maybe the 'fridges will stock some Belgian bottles in due course; and it is also hoped that Monday opening will follow soon.

As of 2021 the Royal Exchange looks distinctly lopsided! The pub was underpinned in the 1990s but now needs more money spent on remedial works.
