The Aldgate Exchange is quiet, dark and gloomy. The bar girl was quite friendly to us but the venue itself felt like it hadn’t seen anyone under the age of 30 in its whole life. The place looks bigger from the outside than it is but could comfortably still fit about fifty people. Surprisingly this venue is quite difficult to get to from the nearby station due to the complex array of subways and busy roads. Drinks were also quite pricey at £7.20 for a double vodka.
Overall a pub that could not possibly stand the test of time with an attitude like this, it needs to buck its ideas up and stop ripping off in terms of drinks and experience, the outside looks so inviting and yet within its just a dire dungeon of an old-man pub - 3/10
