We have just attended a wedding reception at the Metro. It was lovely from start to finish. The food was amazing with a brilliant menu, compliments to the Chef.. And everything was timed perfectly in a very professional manner. The room looked stunning, the staff couldn't do enough to help and make us all feel welcome. I have eaten here before and the food then as now was amazing. Very reasonable price for the quality of the food. Would definitely recommend this for a Wedding venue or Party, meal with friends or family. Lovely to sit outside and have a drink or cocktails. Really well organised hardworking team.
Compliments to Martin and Lesley..

The Metro has a warm and friendly environment, the food is excellent and consistent, we have eaten there on many occasions.

The roast dinner is fantastic! I have recommended it to others many times and all feedback has been great.

The earlier review stating that the manager is not friendly or welcoming couldn't be further from the truth. She always does all she can to accommodate and make your visit a good one and is totally lovely.

If children are running around they are asked not to as hot food is served and obviously being a bar, glasses are in abundance this causes a risk to small children if running around accidents can easily happen. I welcome this approach safety makes sense and also children running round impacts on the experience of others. The Metro does not offer a play area, if a family wants their children to run around they should find somewhere where they offer this facility. My family, extended family which includes small children have always had a lovely experience at The Metro and will do time and time again in the future I am sure. Children should be sitting down being entertained with their family not impacting on other people when in a restaurant or bar.

Thanks to all the staff at The Metro - we will being going back very soon.

The Metro is a wonderful bar, restaurant and hotel two minutes from Southport Town centre. The bar and restaurant are beautifully presented and the food is exceptional. All of the staff are friendly and efficient and the owners are the most hard-working, lovely people you could ever ask to meet. The atmosphere in the bar is relaxed; it's a brilliant place to enjoy a post-work drink or to stay for an entire evening or Sunday afternoon!

Fantastic little hotel situated within very easy walking distance of the centre of Southport and the seafront. The service was excellent throughout and the food in the restaurant was superb - beautifully presented and cooked fresh to order.

The whole hotel is immaculately presented. Definitely will return!

We have just had a short break in southport at this hotel, it could not have been better if it had been a five star rating. The rooms were beautifully appointed and decorated. The food was outstanding and on a par with, if not better than, some of the more illustrious hotels that we have stayed in. The staff were fantastic and could not have been more helpful or pleasant. We will definitely be returning.

We visit the Metropole frequently with our children, we have always found Leslie and Martin and all members of staff extremely friendly, and accommodating towards us all, which is why we return time and time again.
The surroundings are beautiful and the food is by far the best in Southport. They have a unique combination of style along with a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. I would highly recommend anyone to visit the Metro.

Stayed at The Metro due to a wedding being held in Southport. Booked after readings reviews nd they were not wrong. From the minute we arrived the staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant. The room was lovely and was beautifully decorated with lovely bedding. The bathroom was spotless with white fluffy towels. The bar at the hotel had a good atmosphere and plenty of outdoor seating with lovely water feature in the front of the hotel. Ate in the restaurant on one night only and we were not disappointed. The meals were exceptionally good and really good value for money. The complimentary sorbet was gorgeous. Breakfast was either continental or a full English. My husband chose the full English which was cooked to order and he said it was delicious. If ever again in Southport would definitely look forward to booking this hotel. A credit to the owners. I have clicked the fitness centre and swimming pool as terrible by mistake as these facilities were not available please ignore score.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front and it was lovely to hear the water feature in the front of the hotel.
