Sloppy service. Not great food. Much better places to go in southport. Young staff didn't seem to have any experience. Not bad value for money but I wouldn't return

We were a group of thirteen on a Friday night for a birthday meal, the service, food and surroundings were excellent. The menu had something for everyone and the chef and his team delivered world class meals to perfection and with the professional service from the waiting staff we could not fault the Metro. Well done to the team.

Went for a late Sunday roast and far better than what you normally get for a roast. Loads of Beef, cooked to your liking with plenty of veg. We were not rushed, restaurant was full and once finished we could go and relax and enjoy a drink in the bar. Certainly one of or if not the best roast in... More

We were recommended to this by friends in Southport and were not disappointed. The restaurant décor is warm and welcoming with modern touches. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service throughout was excellent with good attention to detail. Our order was taken efficiently and was accurately served which can often cause problems when some are not having starters and...

This must be one of the best Rotary venues for food and service. the food at last Wednesday's meeting was excellent. the staff are extremely helpful and attentive. This boutique hotel restaurant deserves to do well. One of Southport's little gems.
