Description: MET BAR & KITCHEN is located in the centre of Solihull close to Mell Square and Touchwood Shopping Centre. Bright and airy by day and more intimate by night, this buzzy venue is ideal for drinking and eating whether for business or pleasure and a warm welcome is assured! Join us for a coffee or a light bite, a sandwich and a glass of wine, a sharing platter or a full three course lunch or dinner. We use the freshest seasonal ingredients, locally sourced where possible, with a central theme of grills, steaks, burgers and seafood complimented by creative daily specials. We offer a great range of wines, Champagnes and Prosecco, chilled lagers, quality real ales and beer, a collection of premium spirits as well as classic cocktails and some unusual alternatives.

“Everything good apart from the basics ie food, service and value”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

After spending an age shopping with my wife, thought i would treat her to the Metro Bar as she likes wine bar/restaurants with a bit of style and that appear to have a good vibe. As we were the only diners, naturally you expect the service to be quick, but the waitress while friendly enough had the habit of disappearing so it was quite frustrating trying to attract the attention of the barman. Anyhow we opted for fish & chips, which proved to be a bad move, while the portions were certainly very generous, the fish did not taste particularly fresh, the batter was soggy in places and the chips were a bit bland, if we had this in a regular fish & chip shop we may have accepted it, but when you pay around £14 and wait 25 minutes you are entitled to expect better, we were in a bit of a rush so did not complain and in any case the food was edible, just not tasty and certainly not good value.

We visited this restaurant as a group of 16 colleagues and they managed very well.

The good was superb and the menu varied.

Would definitely recommend.
