The Met is about relaxation, quality tapas and fine drinks; bringing a little of the Mediterranean to the beach-front at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Enjoy a taste of our continental style hospitality outside in the sun on our paved seating area overlooking the glorious Ventnor beach. Alternatively why not come inside and enjoy our sumptuous leather seating. Drop in for a coffee or a glass of wine and you'll be certain of a warm welcome from our friendly staff and a truly memorable experience, any time of the day. Our light and airy bar also serves ice-cold specialty beer and cider to cool you down after a day on the beach. Whether you are planning a big night out or just popping in for a chat with friends, The Met is your perfect venue.
