Social distance was good.
Service was great.
First meal/drink out in a few months and felt very safe. Food was excellent and nice to have on tap ale. Booking food/drinks on app was good but found a couple of issues. (1) Camden IPA wasn't on the app, (2) on the cheese board you select three cheeses but App only lets you pick one. Not an issue as just went to bar and ordered directly (behind screen). Excellent job in getting things going again and making customers feel safe. Toffee pudding was a little gooey and probably needed cooking for a few more minutes.
Great service , friendly staff and delicious good
Service was brilliant and they were very good at at managing the social distancing rules. Lovely staff.
Love this pub. The staff are attentive and helpful. The food is always good. The ambience is wonderful.
Good place for a drink and pizza, Covid 19 procedures are exemplary
Great food and very pleasant outdoor seating area. Our first visit and also our first meal out after lockdown. We were not disappointed and will return.
Haven’t managed to balance hospitality and new systems. Felt very unwelcoming - from staff wearing masks in 32 degree heat, to having to unload and load your own drinks from your waiter, to being told there were no disposable wine lists and “I don’t have time to go and photocopy any” even though the place was virtually empty. Also - being shown to a table in a sweltering conservatory even though there were a whole host of tables available both inside the cooler main building and outside. Definitely lost it’s appeal during these strange times, whilst other places have managed it fine. Won’t be rushing back any time soon!
Enjoyed the experience after such a long time not being out. Thsnk you.
Usual good service, ambience good and staff performed well in difficult circumstances.
Spicy chilli salad was good. WE didn't eat anything else.
The staff were doing a great job when we were there, felt very relaxed. Food was fab.
We enjoyed our experience x looking forward to seeing you again soon
We have been regulars here for years eating and drinking. Unfortunately this time the staff were awfully nervous over Covid and made the atmosphere non-existent in the place.
The food was rushed through and only warm. The waitress made us feel very uncomfortable when she served us the drinks. We ate and left within the hour.
Went to 2 other bars on Burton Rd and excellent, a completely different feel but still abiding by all the regulations. We will return when social distancing has been abolished.
Absolutely lovely Sunday Roast, brilliant surroundings, helpful staff and speedy service within a great atmosphere
Wonderful Sunday lunch, great service and staff! Will be returning.
Great to be back ! Like we’ve never been away, food was delicious and service was really quick !
Really good service, and food quality. COVID arrangements not intrusive.
The staff worked really hard to keep everyone socially distanced and safe.
Very impressive. I had the oyster mushrooms with vegan hollandaise and my husband had the lamb croquettes. For the main I had the cod and my husband had the chicken supreme. The food was outstanding, the service was without fault and we enjoyed our time from start to finish.
Wedding Annivesary meal. We were meant to be abroad. We hadn't been out to a restaurant or bar since the pandemic started and decided to choose our local pub to a) enjoy a meal and some drinks b) pre-book and help us dine safely. All of this was acheived with exceptional service. You are asked to register on NHS track and trace on arrival so be prepared to scan a QR code off the wall to get started. Then you sanitise and are seated. Order via your app or via staff. We used the app and there was never more than a 5 min wait for the latest order. Good food and a confidence builder in our first COVID dining experience. The Metropolitan staff are working tremendously hard and deserve a big thank you for attentive service whilst wearing PPE. If you wondering where to try first and you live local, you won't regret putting your trust in this establishment. Just book ahead via Open Table and have the Order Pay app ready too.
Great meal & drinks at the met. Comfortable, clear & safe corona virus measures in place. Drinks ordered through the app & arrived in 2 minutes! Would highly recommend.
Not quite the same ambience as per prior to lockdown but the staff were very diligent in their service. The food was as delicious as ever!
First meal out since lockdown - we were well looked after, clear safety routines in place. Glad to have The Met back.
Everything good although beef burger was a little disappointing. Well be back again.
Doing a great job of keeping everyone safe in COVID times. Excellent table service even just for drinks (don't forget to tip the staff as these are tough times)!
Brilliantly organised for social distancing and felt very safe.
Compared to previous visits (since lockdown) we were very disappointed
Service very slow
Had to ask twice for water
Had to ask for knife and fork
Table had not been wiped
It’s a shame because previous visits were very good, may give it one more chance
Lovely pub very well organised with keeping everyone safe welcoming efficient and friendly. The food was great empty plates all round.
Never fails to deliver. Great food and service, even under the current circumstances.
Social distancing measures easy to follow. All staff wearing masks, very good hygiene measures in place. Wonderful waitress for our table but all staff helpful. Food and ambiance excellent, great value for money.
Friendly, safe service and great food. Would return
Itwas the 1st time we went for a meal after the lock down and we had good food and service thank you.
We felt very safe
Made to feel really welcome and all the covid 19 measures explained fully on arrival. Food was great, plenty of it. Service was excellent didn't feel rushed. Will definitely be going again when in the area.
Our favourite local pub! Excellent food, beer choices and atmosphere.
Social distancing was very well managed also.
Really good, they are set up really well to deal with the current climate. All staff were great and clearly communicated rules etc.
Drinks and food was nice. Only point was we were only allowed to stay for 2hours. Understand the rule but there were about 4-5 empty tables outside and some inside so seemed a bit strange.
Excellent measures in place. Felt very comfortable and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!
The Met has always been fab but feels even better now and whilst booking ahead is a bit of a drag you do know you will get a table as a number of people who tried to call in on the night didn’t
Once in the found the service and the staff could not be faulted and the new app worked seamlessly
The Met burger which was always my favourite did not fail to please
The staff were fantastic and was able to accommodate us.
Very safe & well organised with track & trace etc
Good food, good staff
