Description: The Metropolitan's smart & classic decor reflects the building’s colourful history as a fine Victorian railway hotel. Behind the bar, tall library-style ladders reaching almost to the ceiling rest on a display of fine wines and premium spirits.Treat yourself to an afternoon tea in the relaxing library area with its comfortable armchairs, open fire and well-stacked bookshelves. Ifyou’re dining, take a seat in our elegant conservatory restaurant – light and airy in the daytime and warm and intimate come the evening, it’s the perfect setting to indulge in gorgeous home-cooked cuisine. We serve food all day from breakfast onwards and a there’s a selection of seasonal menus and daily specials to choose from. Our outdoor bar is a wonderful place to enjoy quality drink, fine food and balmy temperatures. You don’t have to wait for a sunny daythough; with its huge outdoor canopy you can dine alfresco whatever theweather.

On Sunday, 14 April 2013 my husband and I celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our family and friends at "The Metropolitan". The actual anniversary was on the following day, 15 April. The year we got married, ie 1963, the date fell on Easter Monday and we held our wedding reception at "The Midland" (now The Metropolitan) so this was especially a momentous occasion for us. The service we received from the staff on the day of our celebration was absolutely wonderful plus the food was lovely and we felt that the staff were part of our special day too as they could not do enough for us. Thank you everyone at "The Metropolitan" - hope to see you very soon again.

This large victorian pub is a reallly great gastro-boozer. They do an excellent sunday roast, definately one of the best I've tasted. Its a busy pub so you will need to book if you need to eat by a certain time. Alternatively just turn up like we did (there were 2 of us) and wait to be seated. Just enjoy a beer until a table becomes available and this isn't a problem as they serve decent beer (Timothy Taylor's Landlord).

Came for lunch a few weeks ago, staff friendly, good beer selection, nice burger. Very large portions so bit of a slog to get through it, but not exactly a gripe. Recommended.

At the heart of West Didsbury, Metropolitan is the destination for a night out, checking out on single ladies / men and pretend to be a middle class hipster.
It has a nice garden which fills up with mentioned people when it is sunny and have nice selection of beer and wine.
Food is generally average to good depends on what you are eating.
Not very expensive and people are friendly.

Had one of the best roast dinners of my life last Sunday here. It's not cheap but it's worth it. Nice atmosphere but have known it to be full of morons from time to time in the bar. Still, Sunday afternoon I can't recommend anything more in the area. Tasty treat.
