Delicious meal deal with itison. Usual night standard of food. Customer service excellent. Atmosphere happy and warm. Sat downstairs this time. Must admit prefer to sit up in the balcony but that’s just my preference. Would definitely recommend metropolitan A+

The 5pm deal menu was really small, I didn’t think there were enough choices, that being said our food was lovely. The Pepsi was very flat, had to exchange for a can which the staff member didn’t charge for which was very kind.

Food amazing, service quick, friendly staff. Tables a bit too close ended up having to squeeze into my table to avoid knocking the table beside me. Ended up with our starters before any drinks were served and had to ask our server twice for partners drink and then ask another server which ended up in two drinks despite telling first server a drink was now coming instead. Albeit we got one drink for free. Restaurant was really busy so understand the pressures on the staff but was just annoying having to chase up our drinks and wait til mid Starter to receive them. Thanks will be back

Could be doing with padding on the seats in the outside area as they are very uncomfortable

Was slightly disappointed with the afternoon tea as the sandwiches were quite hard and seemed like they had been out for a while to be honest though the scones were really good. Without being offensive the member of staff that was serving us had a very strong body odour unpleasant to customers which was also off putting. Other than that was ok

Great value for money - 2 course and a glass of wine for £12. Booking said table was available for 1hr 30 minutes. Arrived at 6.30pm and at 8.00pm we only had our starters. I have been many times because food is good, nice atmosphere but service is always terrible. This is the last time I will visit.

Great food, nice wine and very attentive and friendly staff. I’m personally not a fan of dining in the courtyard however, especially when there is a craft fair on. I felt that the constant passing of shoppers was a bit intrusive! Other than that, very enjoyable.

Food was to a very high standard. The waiter that dealt with us was utterly fantastic!! So attentive and happy to assist with some menu change options from the deal we were on which is not always the case in other places, honestly he was first class which just added to the fabulous food we were served up. The bar is absolutely stunning too. Will be back soon. Thanks Metropolitan!!!!

We came to Metropolitan for my mum’s 65th birthday as part of an afternoon tea deal. Paul who was our server was very attentive and ensured we had a lovely time. Food and drinks were to a high standard.

From entering restaurant with a group of 24 ladies to leaving a few hours later the service was outstanding. The gentleman who served us couldn’t have done more to make us more welcome and went way beyond to serve drinks at the table and allowed us to pay individually. Food was delicious as was presentation We will be back and most definitely recommend this restaurant you will not be disappointed
