Rustic pub with very friendly service. The food (chicken & bacon penne, metro burger) was delicious. The rough wooden tables, a fireplace and a several meters long bar give the pub a warm atmosphere. Compared with other near locations (restaurants/cafes/bistros) the prices were cheaper.
4 from 5 points because of the leaky door which let so much coldness in. So make sure you sit near to the fireplace at evening.

We walked past and just decided to give it a try! only one member of staff on took a while to get served but we were in no hurry the menu was huge and we both had pasta which didnt take too long from when our order was taken they were huge servings and very nice. The tables were wobbly and there were renovations being done on roof and wall but apart from that was nice not a place for romance just a casual meal out!

A nice warm atmosphere with good food and beers. Enjoyed the outdoor seating by the heaters and indoors by the open fire. Very welcoming.

Christmas day and Metro being one of the few places open, was busy and staff hardly able to cope. While reluctant to go there at first due to bad reviews, we finally decided to give it a go. Had to wait ages to be served and it took them a good half hour if not longer to have some toast breads and dips delivered. Those guys might just have had a bad day but don't see why we would want to come back any time soon.

My grown up daughter and I went there for dinner early one evening. The first thing that struck me was how dark it was inside. It was about 6.30pm and still fairly light outside, but there were only a few tables occupied and they only had one tea light candle on each. I actually thought they were having a sudden power cut!
We found a table in the gloom at the back of the room and had to ask for some candles/lighting as we couldn't read the menus!
The food eventually arrived, but not really worth the wait. My daughters pizza was cold and my pasta dish was OK but it tasted like it was all out of a packet!
Daughter went to the loo which is downstairs and she came back in disgust and said Mum, don't go down there! It was dark, dingy and not very sanitary.
It seems from what I can gather from the locals that this place is more suited to a night club, so stay clear in the day and early evening!
