Afternoon Tea is served Friday – Sunday

Great value however could varie the menu more frequently.
Food was really good , only complaint peroni was not in peroni glass
Service was appalling. So slow, no one checked to see if we needed anything else or even just anotber drink. We had 2 drinks in 3 & half hours due to no one coming near us. We waited over an hour for our mains and were given a complementary 5quid desert for the inconvenience. Not enough in my eyes
Early Dinner menu was delicious, good portion sizes and lovely red wine to accompany it. Great value. Good service. Hope to be back again soon.
Not much atmosphere. Pino Colada was terrible. Couldn’t taste the coconut and sad overpriced at £8.75
First class in all aspects.
Worst afternoon I have ever had . Limp sandwiches and hard cake ...yummy not...took my son for his fist afternoon tea which was a shame xx waited an hour for tea too
Hi. We had a brilliant day. The service was great. I would really commend your waiting staff who we really patient and helpful with everyone. They could not have done enough for us. Thank you
All good and will be back again next year for the 5h time.
Held our engagement dinner here with family - a table of 18 people. We had purchased an itison voucher that offered prosseco on arrival, a three course meal, and a cocktail for each guest. Due to it being a voucher I expected it just to go as a normal meal at the general restaurant. My Fiance and I could not have been more blown away with the setting in a luxurious and romantic private dining room complete with candelabra's and tealights dotted around the room with beautiful tableware. It absolutely exceeded beyond any expectations and it truly made it feel extremely special. Paul was assigned to us as our waiter, Paul if you read this please may I extend my sincere thanks you were absolutely fantastic from start to finish, not a single person at the table wanted for anything and the meals were brought in perfect timing between each course. Nothing at all was too much trouble, they assisted my mum to the lift as she has difficulty walking and the ladies bathroom was a minute's walk from the table which definitely made everything extremely convenient. Rroisin and Sandro were both equally attentive and were even happy to personalise the menu offering changing one of the courses to fish and chips as i had requested for my fussier eaters within the family, they even personalised the menus and had them all sitting out on the table. They played a playlist in the background that kept it feeling like a party and celebration and was the perfect addition to keep the mood light. I've had messages from everyone who attended expressing how much of a fantastic night it was and for us as our engagement night we couldn't have wished for more. Value for money? - i would have paid triple for that experience it truly was something. Venue - Stunning Staff - Extremely conscientious Food - Delicious and lots of choice Cocktails - Delicious Service - 5 Star Value - Amazing Value even at full price I know this is a raving review but honestly - they deserve it.
Great all around
We have eaten here many times.Last night my wife and I ordered the Metropolitan burger. The burgers were very disappointing.Dry, overcooked and crusty on the edges making it difficult to cut through the meat. We both stated this to the young waitress when she asked "How was your meal? but she didn't respond. Aside from this the evening was as always excellent in Metropolitan.
We had a large booking, food was lovely and tasted great but drinks service was bad. We waited a long time for every round of drinks. When we went out to the bar to get our drinks instead of table service, we were told to go back and sit at the table. Understanding that is nye and very busy and not the staffs fault, there should definitely been more staff on to accommodate.
We were eating a la carte but the set menu was on the side and showed a Spanish wine that was available with it, but it didn't appear on the wine list. I asked if I could order the wine with my meal (because they obviously have it). I was told No, you can only have that wine with the set menu. Bizarre!! So I order a Spanish wine from the wine list, waiter then comes back with a different wine and says the one I ordered wasn't available but the one he had was recommended. When the bill comes it was one of the most expensive on the list, they had charged me full price and OK, I had accepted it, but see it as a totally crooked way to get me to spend extra. Food was good but wasn't happy about underhanded tactics to boost the drinks bill.
Excellent venue that I have used a few times.
I was quite disappointed with our visit to your restaurant. When I booked, I had quite a specific request for a more rectangle or square table for 13 rather than the standard longer thin less social arrangement. I was assured that this was possible and I booked the restaurant based on this assurance. When we arrived the table was just a regular long, thin table set for 13 and I was told it wasn’t possible to have the arrangement I requested and I shouldn’t have been told it could be done!! (Without really any sort of apology). It was a Wednesday evening and no other people sat down to eat on the area we were allocated (the balcony) so I’m quite sure the table arrangement I requested would not have been a problem at all if the staff had really wanted to meet our request!!! The food from the set menu was very average with both the lamb and the salmon from the main meal choices over cooked. Lamb is supposed to be served pink but this was well done and very fatty. The lemon posset didn’t taste of lemon and it had a rather nasty after taste. A very expensive evening having booked a restaurant based on the assurances of our specific table arrangement that didn’t deliver and not very good food at all. A real shame and very disappointing!! I won’t be booking this restaurant again for my team events.
Service was a little slow when receiving our dessert but other than that really good. Amazing food and nice staff. Definitely will be coming back.
Our waiter Jordan was fantastic. A great asset to your business
Very, very busy, but a fabulous experience. Staff were amazing.
I love the Metropolitan, the food is so good and I am a fussy vegetarian and I always have lots to choose from. The waiting staff are so friendly and love to get involved with our dining party taking pics for us and making sure we get seated in the bar area after we have eaten even when they are busy the still go that extra mile. The cocktails are amazing and rainbow shots supereb value .
Shocking wait for our drinks order and an even worse wait of approximately 40 minutes for our starter! A party of 60 is a poor excuse for such a long wait. Further issues with a flat beer! We won't be back.
Great Value for a lovely lunch with a bottle of wine.
I couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our Retirement Party. The Private Dining room was simply perfect and we were well looked after by the waiting staff. I will certainly be choosing and recommending Metropolitan in the future. Thank You!
Following some initial slow service in getting our welcome drinks, we enjoyed a wonderful three course meal in beautiful surroundings. The service was quick to pick up and our table of 14 left very happy, all eager to return.
Booked the private dining and it was amazing! Great venue, great food great service! Highly recommend
