Restaurant details
Neighborhood: Notting Hill
Description: The Metropolitan embraces the classic local pub feel with high tables & comfy seats, stools and cosy leather sofas, beer garden and roof terrace (even for those cold nights) and 2 amazing private function rooms which we dubbed the Lounge and The Snug. Only a few steps away from Westbourne Park Tube Station it makes the perfect pit stop to wind down after a hard day of work or to kick start your party! Our staff will look after the details. If you are a lover of sports we can show 3 different events at the same time across the bar, the Lounge and the Snug.

A friend and I were in Kensington & Chelsea for a day's painting and found The Metropolitan by chance but ideally placed for a lunch stop on our tour. Taken a bit as 'pot luck' but found to be so good that it warrants a review as more readers should enjoy its benefits.

First off on asking about the beers on tap we were offered a taste of each. We wanted to eat, relax for an hour or so on a very hot and busy day - no problem. In fact while my colleague went off after lunch to paint by the Grand Union Canal just round the corner they were very happy for me to occupy a picnic table for another hour or so to work on my paintings. Now that's being accommodating!

The beer was good and the bar meals large, well presented and very tasty. Despite being a busy Saturday the staff were polite, friendly and efficient - service time wholly acceptable.

It is virtually on top of Westbourne Park Underground Station; Portobello Road Market is near but as I say the canal nearer and a delight.

Do go you'll enjoy it and the locals who were welcoming too.

We spent an afternoon on the roof terrace, the food was amazing, in fact the hardest part was deciding what to have! The staff and manager could not have been more friendly or helpful, it's a short walk to portobello road, and the markets and being a Sunday we parked right outside for free. I can thoroughly recommend the generous jugs of pimms, it was the perfect end to a weekend in London
