Visited Padstow many times but this was the first visit to the Metropole Hotel. We walked up the steps from Riverside and alongside the Seafood Restaurant. This took us through the rear car park and the back of the hotel which to be honest did not give a very good impression, it would be better perhaps to direct guest around... More

Padstow has a reputation as a food town and mostly this revolves around the establishments of a celebrity chef. Now, I have eaten at his restaurants and they are very good and serve excellent food. However there is more to the town than the globe trotting celebrity. I would recommend the restaurant at the Metropole, the food is on a... More

Wanting to go somewhere different for our cream tea we decided to try The Metrople Hotel. We were not disappointed. The scones were light and very tasty. Plenty of jam and cream to put on them too. The people on the next table were having afternoon tea. Think that is a must for next time. Only negative point was difficulty... More

My friends and I really enjoyed our dinner here. My plaice was superb. I'm guessing this bar shares the kitchen with the Michelin Guide listed restaurant next door. I also had cream tea here and it was lovely.
