“The Met”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to experience the food outside on a lovely warm day. Pity about the idiot bikers riding past making a noise. Make road for taxis and buses only as already traffic free from 9 till 5 I think.

Cult status for this venue. Some great small acts play here. The drinks are a little bit expensive though.
