We lucked out with nice sunny day. Good size portions and good food. Friendly staff, a tad slow. We ate outside in the bohemian back garden terrace. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

What a lovely place to meet up. Those wedding guests that were still in London met up at the Metro Garden for drinks and canapes. It was such a nice way to end a most joyous weekend celebrating. The canapes were gorgeous. Staff were so...More

There's two stand-out features of Metro restaurant in Clapham. The first is walking through the seemingly normal-sized restaurant only to find it opens out into a glorious back garden space, filled with stylish flowers, brickwork and pretty seating. It's a real oasis with few garden...More

Great dinner venue, especially in the summer when the garden is open. Beautifully tucked away close to Clapham Common tube, the garden is a pretty romantic little spot for a mid-week date. The food is good, and reasonably priced. My only small issue or gripe...More

'One of Clapham's best kept secrets' as described by Charles Campion of the Evening Standard.Just outside the Clapham Common tube station, you could never guess how magical the gardens are beyond the red restaurant doors. Those in the know spend many balmy summer evenings under the twinkling lights or a warm winter by candlelight. As the sun sets over Clapham Common, Metro comes alive. Candles flicker through the restaurant, the original church pews start to fill up with guests. Oversize comfy sofas draw you in. It is a unique and almost magical surrounding to eat, drink and relax. The gardens have a rustic feel and are nestled in between the beautiful St Mary's church and the monastery, the amazing stained glass window creates a splendid back drop to start your evening or conversation. Come see for yourself why the Metro is considered one of Clapham's best kept secrets!
