Really slow service even though it was quiet this lunchtime visit. Ordered a chicken and bacon toasted roll n chips....No bacon whatsoever and roll was like a brick, could have broke a tooth it was that hard. Told waitress and money was deducted. However overpriced and not value for money!

Service started well, but change of staff later and it slipped a bit, but generally we were looked after nicely.

The setting was nice but the service was very slow and had to ask for the same thing a few times as the server kept forgetting to bring us things we’d asked for.

I didn’t know what to expect from the metropolitan team. I booked a leaving party for myself. There were about 50 people over the course of the night. The staff were attentive, helpful and great cocktail mixers.

Very nice location but, unfortunately, very slow service for us. Really hard to flag down a server to order drinks, and the cocktails took about 20 minutes to make it to us with each order. Food looked nice on the menu but underwhelming in reality. Drinks orders were wrong a few times, and the Bloody Mary made with red wine mixed with tomato juice.

We had my daughter’s 18th birthday party in the function room. Room is very nice, buffet food was excellent. A good place for a private party.

I informed the restaurant several times before coming that I was vegetarian. This was also confirmed when I was being seated. However, I didn’t receive any additional vegetarian sandwiches. We were given 3 squares of cheese, 3 tuna and 3 ham. I therefore had 1 square of a sandwich for my lunch. It wasn’t until leaving I seen on an another table that they had received vegetarian sandwiches and realised we hadn’t received what we should have. Moreover, we asked for the 3 proseccos that accompanied the deal. We were brought 1 glass and spent another 15 minutes trying to get another 2 glasses brought over. We were also informed that the table was to be given back at 1.45, however, by 1.20 we were being rushed out of the restaurant. Our bill was even brought to us before we requested it. We were made to feel very uncomfortable. To spend £80 on this lunch, which was to treat our mum on Monther’s Day was a huge disappointment and I wouldn’t return

We had a fantastic day/ night. Our waiter Josh was attentive and looked after us , nothing too much trouble. I would recommend it and all the girls will definitely be going back. The food was lovely and all the other staff were great.

Our meal was nice although one sent back for too oily and no offer of refund or money off bill. The whole night we waited over twenty minutes for each round of drinks sometimes longer which was just unacceptable and really ruined the night!

We had a problem with the Butternut and spinach curry: there was no spinach. The manager was kind enough to explain what had happened, and offered a free dessert, but it really shouldn't happen. All it needs is for the chef to be on hand checking that each dish goes out as it should do.

Menu choice was very limited on the market menu. Starters were disappointing (potato scone nachos just hard. Chipolata sausages seemed a bit pointless. Battered fish was lovely. Despite asking for bacon & cheese on the burger, it came with neither. Service was quite slow considering not an awful lot of diners on a Wednesday evening. I suppose you get what you pay for but had better on similar deals
