Went for bottomless brunch. This was the second time i've been and it was brilliant again. Staff are amazing. Nice atmosphere, nice food and staff constantly keep your drink topped up. They also give you cranberry and orange - would definitely recommend

We took the Festive Tea and were pleasantly surprised with the tea! We so enjoyed the festive variety after our hearts dropped on arrival seeing the 2 tv screens running on the wall making the atmosphere for afternoon tea an absolute zero. Why, oh why do bars think anyone wants or watches soundless TVs running non stop, it kills any ambience, please get with the programme? So old hat and you have to work at ignoring them. That said, the service after we were seated and after the tea arrived was excellent. I was given another glass of prosecco on the house; a very nice gesture. I have passed on to friends what a nice time we had, not being able to travel to London we are all staying 'local' this Xmas.

Yesterday afternoon at 3pm I brought my family to your Waterhouse Bar as we were celebrating my daughter's 22nd birthday.
To say that I was disappointed is a huge understatement. The seats were very uncomfortable, but as its an old hotel that, I guess could be expected. The tea itself, when it finally arrived, was a disappointment - the smoked salmon was vey chewy but most upsetting, all the cakes, including the scones were not home made!! This was very surprising and not at all what we were expecting.
I had to keep asking for drinks, as nobody came and asked us and then when the coffee arrived I had to try and attract the attention of a waitress to obtain some milk. A glass of water I asked for never materialised at all. The hot chocolate wasn't hot, but luke warm so again I had to attract the attention of a waitress.
It was not the enjoyable, relaxing afternoon that I and my family had anticipated, instead, it was an expensive mistake and one that I will not be repeating.
I certainly will not be recommending the Metropole Hotel to my friends and family
I look forward to hearing your comments ----- this is a copy of the email I sent to the Hotel on Monday - I haven't received the courtesy of a reply

Found the afternoon tea rather basic and nothing compared to ones that we have had before .There was nothing outstanding and the teapot had a large crack in it where the tea stain was comming out which we requested another pot . We are members of the Hilton but found this dissapointing

Good service given by the waiter Jordan,asked asked several times if everything was ok,the cakes/sandwiches came out the presentation was appetising and more than enough for the 4 of us to share.Lovely relaxing afternoon.Thank You ??

The venue is quite vast and open. We went for afternoon tea which is generous on the portions although tends to be more on the sweet side as the savouries (sandwiches) were not as plentiful.
Service is amiable and overall the experience is quite nice. Good price as well as there are other locations that are more expensive and this is quite fitting for a relaxed time and a bit of a treat.
