The Exchange wasn't a pub I walked past the Flying horse to get to very often.

Yeh, what was the issue with the Exchange? Was it rough or something? I know a mate of mine got filled in in the place after a footy game but that could have happened anywhere. I certainly went in the place occasionally but then I liked all the dodgy places, I still do.

Only a personal opinion but it wasn't just the fact that it was a bit rough, I've been in much rougher, harder pubs and enjoyed a good time. I just thought it was a crap pub whilst there was a local landmark and in-place in the Flying Horse just a few doors away and lots of really busy, fashionable places nearby at the time such as the Dog and Bear, The Fountain, The QE and so on. The Exchange just wasn't on the radar of people of mine and my friends age at the time. To each their own and some will have loved it. I thought it was a bit of a boring dump - and with few girls in it apart from the obvious.

In the Exchange the "ladies" used to frequent the back room which was down the alley on the right hand side of the picture. The Flying Horse had quite a few bars, the best one was the Goose fair bar.

Nicked this painting from Facebook. I think it's lovely.

What about a bloke selling 'Steakwiches' near the stairs???

Hi the bloke selling the Steakwiches was a Spanish guy called Stefan and his wife Carman was a chef in the Friar Tuck restaurant, also their son (Jonnny) worked there too.

Interesting to note the 'Salad Bar' in the internal pics, long before 'Harvesters' became popular, obviously they stole the idea from Berni.........................

The Flying Horse...... Was a Schooner Inn
