I had my daughter's 21st birthday party here and nothing was too much trouble. The garden and marquee are fabulous and nothing was too much trouble for Fran and her team. The food was delicious and we were over 40 people. What a wonderful place.

'One of Clapham's best kept secrets' as described by Charles Campion of the Evening Standard.Just outside the Clapham Common tube station, you could never guess how magical the gardens are beyond the restaurant doors. Those in the know spend many balmy summer evenings under the twinkling lights or a warm winter by candlelight. As the sun sets over Clapham Common, Metro comes alive. Candles flicker through the restaurant, the original church pews start to fill up with guests. It is a unique and almost magical surrounding to eat, drink and relax. The gardens have a rustic feel and are nestled in between the beautiful St Mary's church and the monastery, the amazing stained glass window creates a splendid back drop to start your evening or conversation. Come see for yourself why the Metro is considered one of Clapham's best kept secrets!
