Our favourite for Sunday lunch. He eats meat: I don't, so doing a proper lunch at home doesn't happen... The Met is our occasional Sunday treat, when we want our individual meals done properly. Proper lush!

Great Sunday lunch and very buzzy atmosphere in the pub. We had a nice table but suspect some could be pretty noisy and could have done with the pub being a bit warmer although to be fair it speaks very cold when we went

Very good the only problem is that they want to pick up your plate before you have finished.

Absolutely delicious food, lovely staff, just unfortunately extremely noisy. It is a bit noisy anyway which is fine but a group of 8 men were just ridiculously loud, i do appreciate the staff did ask them to quieten down though!

We really impressed with the ambience and layout of the Metropolitan. The service was attentive and friendly.

All of our main courses were delicious and beautifully cooked.

My only real gripe was the dessert. It was a little tasteless, sloppy and disproportioned.

Other than that though, our meal was delicious and we will definitely be back! Thank you.

Meal was, as good as always. The braved beef was superb and the sticky toffee pudding was to die for. Always have a good time here as the food is always good.

Outstanding food, especially the vegetarian roast (aubergine, lentils and hazelnuts). Brownies also outstanding. Friendly smiley staff. Only the roast potatoes (dry and hard) were disappointing.

The service was great and the staff friendly and welcoming, such a nice change to see. My friends loved the decor and ambience. We were impressed with the meal particularly the roast dinner. Slightly diappointed with the desserts, the treacle pudding didn't really taste of treacle, more like chocolate sponge with treacle sauce. But loved the retro baked Alaska with the fruity twist.

Quick and friendly service. Food good really liked the different types of vegetables . Only downside was the Yorkshire puddings were very big which made them taste of cardboard, also a little more gravy would of been nice.

Sunday roast. Food wasn’t very warm, potatoes not very crispy, generous portions. Tables a bit cramped and close together, noisy.

We took an elderly couple for lunch. It was his birthday. She is very deaf and very fussy. We sat in the restaurant at a window seat so it was light The noise level was low, the service was relaxed but very efficient.
We all enjoyed it!

Great Sunday lunch and good value for the quality. The only reason I didn’t give the food five stars is the food was warm and not hot.
