Was a gift voucher. Neither my fiance or myself drink wine or prosecco so the bottle was of no use to us. The only alternative offered was soft drink. Perhaps other substitutions could be available.

My Sister bought us an afternoon tea voucher for xmas so we came along for the 12.30 sitting. It was all in all very disappointing. The biggest issue was the lack of service. We had a drinks order taken when we sat down. Our food came within 5 minutes but still no drinks. we were again asked if we wanted drinks to which we reminded the same server we had already ordered them with him. They didn’t come for another ten minutes by which time we had eaten half the food. My husband was given a coffee with no milk, and it took another 5 minutes for any staff to be visible to ask for some. The food itself was a little dull and it just seemed cheap in general. No one came over again for the remaining duration of our visit so we couldn’t order any more drinks. In the end we just left to go somewhere else for drinks where there would be some level of service. on the way out we witnessed a staff member clearing a table and coughing all over it without covering his mouth. Not encouraging or good practise at all especially at this time.

Was a lovely meal, nice staff and such a beautiful restaurant. Only thing that let it down was the dessert, the options weren’t that great / exciting. We did get the dark chocolate dessert which was okay, not my taste personally. The cocktails were lovely and the mains / starters were fantastic. Staff could have been a bit more attentive as we did wait a while when trying to get more drinks but it was a Saturday night.

Had the market menu and enjoyed starter and mains - both very good. For a usual meat eater, tried the veg curry and it was delicious. Would have been good to convert both wines into a cocktail, but unfortunately not able to - even tho we would have ended up buying an additional soft drink.

I'm sorry we didn't join you for lunch because of the virus situation, we were really looking forward to it and wondered if we could still use it?

I received some form of communication asking about dietary preferences which I replied to. This was not adhered to in the slightest. We also did not receive tea with our afternoon tea. Did not even bother to ask as by that point I had lost the will. Very disappointing

There was only 3 members of staff on for a busy Sunday. The staff who where on were great considering how busy it was, they were slow which again was understandable as they were clearly just massively understaffed. We waited over 25 minutes for 2 drinks, but the staff were apologetic and helpful. Food was great, would definitely go back.

Service was very friendly. Portions sizes generous so much so that I could not finish my main course. Atmosphere in a Monday afternoon very relaxed. Would definitely return.

From making the booking for my private function to the day itself staff were helpful and thorough in their approach. They met my expectations, and they assisted with everything. The quality of service and the food provided was superb, with all my guests commenting very positively on their experience at Metropolitan.
