A few months ago my Rotary club, the Rotary Club of Southport Links, changed its meeting venue to the Metro. What a refreshing change. We now have very nice food, served by friendly faces in a convivial atmosphere. this hotel restaurant deserves to succeed because the service is excellent. Not only that the range of real ales on offer is... More

We rang and reserved a table for lunch a couple of weeks in advance. When we arrived no reservation had been made in the book. There were two other people in the restaurant but the lady behind the desk said we were lucky as they had a table available. The restaurant remained empty apart from ourselves for our entire visit.... More

Oh dear! A very limited Sunday lunch menu; food served ready plated; gravy spilt without comment; jug of water without glasses. What a shame, nice decor and pleasant staff but I don't think I'll be returning.

Visited twice in the same week as we were so impressed. On both evenings the meal was wonderful and the staff and service were brilliant. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

A sorbet was served between the starter and main course which was a really nice touch. (I haven't seen that for ages) My only niggle is that... More

I went to the Metro when it first opened and whilst the meal again ( like last time ) was excellent the choice was somewhat limited and somewhat aged with starters like Prawn Cocktail and melon. And again for the entrees if you didn't want steak there were only 2 main meat choices. The pork however was excellent and the... More
