We have been slaving on the roads of Walkerville, & headed to the markets for a look. We stumbled on this pub opposite the market entry. I had an entree of their dumplings; these dumplings could have made an embarrassment of a Chinese cook; awesome. The young bloke had the fillet from Mt Gambier; one of the best pieces of...

Again, this hotel doesn't fail to impress with its food. Our association were well welcomed and the food and service does not fail to impress. Nearly every plate was licked clean. The Metropolitan is well located with plenty of local car parking and public transport. BZ!

Staff were lovely and definitely no intentions to disrespect them but the accommodation was not worth what was paid. A bed and tv and bar fridge in the room that was it, a kettle at least would have helped. No air con, unisex bathrooms. It was clean to a certain degree except for the overuse of room freshener or whatever...

The hotel was desperate. No facilities in the room not even a kettle. The toilets and baths and showers were in the corridor. I would have got better value from a YMCA. Location is pretty good but as an overnight stay. Avoid avoid avoid.

This place did not disapoint. A few meters from the mail Adelaide's coach terminal, right at the centre of Adelaide, opposite Coles supermarket a . It is a typical pub accomodation, share bathrooms , but clean and quite during the week. They provide free tea /coffee at the main bar. I was a very happy traveller.

Enjoyed the slow-cooked beef cheeks. They were tender and had a great flavour. The service was quick and prices were reasonable. Overall, the pub was quite good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Ate here once with my elderly parents - semi decent pub food served quickly. Not a bad pub really, we sat in the dining area with a few other people - reasonable wine choice and reasonable food. I ate the Spanish pork on cous cous and enjoyed it.

I have been here a few times recently for lunch. we pre ordered our meals and were served soon after we arrived. The meals are a good size, reasonably priced and tasty. There is not a huge choice but anyone should be able to find something they like. They also have a daily $8.00 special.

Well, I've noticed that trip adviser doesn't seem to be anywhere near as flexible as some of the other sites, especially since pubs seem to fall into either a hotel or a restaurant (though sometimes they are separate listings). Many of the hotels, like this one, I've only been to as a pub, and as a pub this place is...
