As I was staying at Vale House for the Flower Show, I wanted somewhere close by for a small evening meal. The Metro seemed to tick the boxes. On arrival it seemed very smart and I got a glass of wine whilst having a look through the All Day Menu. Opting for something light, I went for a small portion... More

I enjoyed a lovely Afternoon Tea with my husband in the garden at the Metro last week. The good was very nice and the glass of Prosecco was perfectly chilled. The staff were friendly and attentive. A truly enjoyable afternoon in the sun. We will be back again soon

Excellent food served to a large group of 23 for a 90th birthday. Couldn't fault the service or the food. Staff and owner were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. They were very helpful in helping us plan such a special event. Will definitely be going again!!!

We visited on a Groupon deal offering tapas and wine. The bar and restaurant are modern and attractive. Service was pleasant and friendly. We ordered our inclusive glass of wine and waited for our food. After a while, a member of staff brought a complimentary second glass of wine and apologised for the wait, explaining that the kitchen was very... More

Went to the The Metro on a Groupon offer for afternoon tea. A lovely place, very clean and modern and the staff were extremely helpful and very polite. The afternoon tea was sufficient, but the only criticism myself and friends have is, it would have been nice to have had our own teapot and hot water. We were not comfortable... More
