4 of us had what we thought a nice 2 course meal and drinks. Unfortunately the person who chose the Veg Lasagne was sorry as it all came back out in the early hours. She did say that it was a bit dried up and it looked as if it had been sitting in a fridge for some time so... More

Had a pre theatre here with friends and it was most enjoyable. Food was delicious and service was good. Staff were polite and friendly and as it was Christmas time, our seat up in the balcony looked over the markets downstairs and the lovely fairy lights on the ceiling were just beautiful. Only downside was that you have a long... More

I booked 1 month in advance for a family get-together of 20 people and paid a £50 deposit. I called 1 hour before arrival to ensure everything was in order and was assured they were expecting us. We turn up to 2 couches which could fit 6 people. After 10 minutes of waiting they managed to fit us in upstairs... More

Around the festive period most eating establishments in big city centres are packed, and this place was no exception. It seemed the clientele were all there for a good time, and rightly so, but the noise, the NOISE. Still, we were there for the food, and this could not be faulted, and neither could the service. As regards dishes to... More

I have been here a few times and have always been happy with my visit. In terms of food, I have only ever had their afternoon tea which was great but can't comment on much else on the menu. 100% recommend Metropolitan as it has a lovely atmosphere and is a nice place to start off your night or recharge...

Out with friends for our annual Christmas Dinner night. Set menu of three courses plus tea/coffee for £34.95 on a Saturday. Had the roasted parsnip and ginger soup, which was warming with a bit of a bite - very nice. Had chargrilled Angus sirloin steak for main, cooked medium to well-done. Cooked right through, and was a very tasty piece... More
