Will Larter left this review about The Royal Exchange

This pub has been very well described by previous reviewers, which leaves me with the simple task of saying "me too". An excellent locals pub just outside the town centre, with one of the best bitters in the country, Bathams Best, in tip top condition. In fact it was so good when I was here on the Saturday before the Hatters game at the Hawthorns, that I came back again on the Tuesday after a session at the Camra winter festival in Birmingham. I wasn't disappointed.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Royal Exchange

Fine old terraced Batham's pub with a central alleyway with the bar off to the left and a small lounge with a fair amount of additional external seating further back as you emerge into the rear courtyard. Quite traditionally furnished in the front room but slightly smarter and more modern in the other (although the 'background' music here was a bit louder than I expected in such a place). Just the regular Bitter and Mild (£2.45) of course, but this is ample reward for the aficionados.

An old style traditional pub with a public bar and rear lounge, both accessed from side doors via an open link corridor which also serves the toilets on the opposite side. We were in at around 6pm on Saturday and there wasn't a seat to be had, the atmosphere was lively and enjoyable. Various posters indicate the pub as a community hub, there is a vague Irish slant, I understand the landlord hails from Ireland, signs give distances to various towns over there.
A bit of a time warp with white stucco walls, artex and terrazzo style flooring, pewter tankards on hooks, banknotes on the ceiling beams and shelves of whiskey boxes, framed newspaper cuttings feature the pub and local characters. I spotted a nice old framed OS map of Victorian Stourbridge. A dartboard in a front recess looked unusable without a major furniture reshuffle.
Just Batham's Bitter and Mild on, the bitter was excellent, a fine drop indeed. Food looks to be limited to cobs and pork pies, a decent enough fix while drinking however I don't know if full meals are served at other times.
An excellent characterful proper pub. They don't make them like this anymore.
