9 of us enjoyed a very good early evening meal one Saturday evening. We had booked in advance and appreciated being fitted in at relatively short notice.. The waitress provided us with good service and helpful advice. We had bread and olives to start and a variety of mains and puddings. Everyone commented how good the food was especially the... More

Slightly concerned because there was a distinct smell of burning when we arrived and a board outside advertising for a new chef!! Worries put aside, the interior was very cosy and welcoming. We had booked a table online and received a prompt response.....I wish more venues were as efficient. The menu was varied with lots to choose from. Both the... More

Had a table for four booked at 12pm and only a couple of other tables were also seated. Ordered a burger, bourguignon, chilli and club sandwich. Other food arrived before ours despite ordering after us. Took about half an hour to arrive by which time most tables were occupied. The food was very nice if a little under seasoned. The... More

The Royal Exchange is situated in Harpury near Gloucester on the A417. We were staying in Coarse Lawn and wanted somewhere close by to have an evening meal. We booked ahead and had a table next to a very warm, log fire – just right for a cold February evening. This pub was established around 1855 and is on the... More

Three of us visited here on Friday. We had a very good meal, beef burger, ham egg and chips and the special turbot which was very good but rather a lot of bones. The ice cream was the best I have ever tasted and a really big helping! We were disappointed with the long wait for our meal and there... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit. I’m glad you enjoyed your meals but I’m sorry if your turbot had too many bones. Did you happen to mention anything to your server? We would happily swap or offer an alternative if you aren’t happy with your meal. Again, I apologise if you had to... More

You can always tell when a place takes its food seriously. A short menu that reflects the seasons, specials that don't last long and tease. Staff that are knowledgable and friendly. Couple that with one of my favourite beers from the Wye Valley brewery and you are ensured a nice night out. Keep room for the sticky toffee pudding with... More

What a fantastic local we have. Friendly, warm and welcoming and goes the extra mile to create special and memorable events. New Year Eve with a great local band, lovely company and superb food. Scallops cooked to perfection and the most tender and flavoursome lamb. Staff ever cheerful despite a very packed bar. Thank you RE!
