This is a great pub Great food and atmosphere though was slightly subdued due to COVID restrictions. I’ve been going since it was The Midland in the early 80’s
Went for food, a few days before the nation wide lockdown.
Staff were friendly, abs just chatty enough without being overbearing. Food was excellent. Had a lovely time.
Well done the staff involved on Thursday, working hard in difficult times, service ,food and beer very good !
Fantastic food and lovely staff! Can’t wait to go again
They have clearly worked hard to implement and practice safe measures to continue operating through tough pandemic conditions. We felt safe, enjoyed a good meal in a comfortable environment as close to normal as it could be.
Once again great food great service great value for money
Escape from lockdown with our bubble. Just what we needed to relax and forget the current troubles.
Service was friendly and food was good - excellent burger.
Shame to see lots of empty tables in what is normally a busy pub/restaurant - they must really be feeling the Tier 3 restrictions which mean you have to eat a meal in order to have a drink (alcoholic).
Lets hope better times aren't too far off.
Very pleasant atmosphere. Great food selection and excellent service from our waiter.
So safe, staff are brilliant, food was spot on. Partner had pizza - he loves the copious amount of toppings and I had a pork steak that was off the specials. Dog welcome & service was perfect. Second week in a row we have been and it won’t be the last.
Great check in, great service , great food, thanks Met
Covid rules clear. Friendly clear guidance on sanitisers, table distance. Staff wore masks.
service was efficient and courteous. Food was well cooked and tasty..Good value
Again Staff performed well in difficult circumstances, seems a team effort to keep the building clean and the main consideration is the safety of the customers. Great menu available and pizza selection from the oven available from 17.00 pm.
Decent limited menu which is understandable due to the current climate, app did not work to order from the table when it came to making payments which again is outside of control. Overall great space, good vibes at a decent price, easy go to place. would recommend for a casual evening.
Great food, Great atmosphere, Great staff
Yummy food in a Covid secure environment. Great service
Nice speedy and friendly service at the Met. Generous portions with great ambiance in a lovely building.
Lovely atmosphere and great food as usual but I was really cold
Great food and service 5 star ⭐️
3 of us sat in the covered outdoor area. Its spacious and airey although the heaters are so powerful it was quite hot underneath them
Very helpful, friendly staff. We enjoyed a relaxed Friday family meal.
Beautiful space, good menu and very friendly staff. I was surprised that my non-alcoholic bottle of beer was priced higher than my husband's pint (a rather steep £5.15 for a bottle of Erdinger). Overall a nice meal out in a lovely old pub :)
Usual great service in difficult times, staff very good and the atmosphere is always while eating good cuisine !
We were seated inside which was very spacious, felt comfortable that they've taken due care given the pandemic.
I had the Sunday roast (beef). Beef was tender, plenty of gravy and huge Yorkshire pud. Veg was mainly red cabbage. I'd have liked a few more greens personally but no real complaints, it was decent enough and I enjoyed it.
Bar orders are accepted via the "OpenPay" app, however I found this didn't work on my phone, so had to rely on table service - which I suspect may have suffered a little if most are able to use the app.
Great quality. The lamb dish could not be faulted. Professional and very friendly service.
I have usually put it down as 5* but on this occasion it wasn’t - this happens regularly thinking of it, you place a food order and the food arrives often before cutlery and condiments- as soon as order is taken you should take the cutlery napkins and sauces etc... should be taken to table well in advance of food,,, food arrived and had to wait for cutlery and didn’t seem quick at all - please sort this out
In strange times the staff performed to their normal high standards in what seemed a very safe environment. The hygiene controls are very well implemented in this establishment ! The food was good and the Pizza choices are plenty !
I really enjoyed my visit to the metropolitan pub, the customer service was great and what they had put into place to protect their customers from Covid-19 made me feel really safe :)
I thought the vegetarian options were very poor. I didn't particularly enjoy the Mushroom and Spinach Wellington that I ordered, thus would not recommend to anyone I know
Great table service. Lovely staff. Shown to table relevantly quickly.
Great night, thank you!
Beer and food is good and the app system works well for orders. All off the staff are polite apart from the staff on the welcome desk who seem to be using covid as a excuse to be rude.
Wonderful, excellent food great service. Just hope we don't go into lockdown again!
Good atmosphere and service. Distancing implemented well.
The staff are great and the
The staff were great, very friendly and always happy to bring us any extras we needed. The measures in place to keep everyone safe are followed by well and we felt very safe and welcome. Food was amazing! Thank you for a great visit
Usual good service in a safe environment, not the cheapest pub in town, but cheap prices are known to attract cheap people, this cannot be said of the Metropolitan Hotel. The standard set by management is high and maintained !!
Food was delicious and arrived in good time, the chips were REALLY crispy which I love, and my impossible burger was delicious. The service was great, just the right balance of being on top of everything without being intrusive, and the staff were all very friendly. I’d definitely go back.
Great food, felt very safe - staff were fantastic
Great food, great environment, great service. Well adapted to new protocols.
Didn’t enjoy being outside as much as indoors but I left it late to book- still great tho and a lovely afternoon 👍🏻🍺🍺
Generally love the meals we have here. Never had any negative meals.
Mostly the staff are attentive and friendly. Maybe someone was having an off-day on our last visit - )got the feeling that we were being a nuisance when asking for a slight change to the menu), but won’t stop us coming back.
Really like the way that lots of Covid-Hygiene measures have been put in to protect and socially distance.
