Restaurant

Serving an impressively diverse selection of local produce in a range of styles, our a la carte menu is available from 5pm every evening. In addition, we serve a pre-theatre set menu of 2 or 3 courses which changes daily to reflect market specials and the freshest seasonal ingredients.

A choice of set menus is available for groups of over 10. Metropolitan's restaurant is unique not only for its menu, but also for its first-floor setting in the south-west corner of Merchant Square, formerly the Victorian Candleriggs market. Spanning four distinct areas, it is equally capable of accommodating celebratory parties and romantic rendezvous.

 

The Balconies

Airy and light in the summer; cosy and candlelit during winter months: our twin balconies each offer their own unique feature. Whether seated within view of the Square's canopy of twinkling lights, or warmed by the velvety flames of the raised fire on the south balcony, the sights and sounds from below guarantee an atmospheric evening.

 

Champagne Bar

The lavish white leather booths of our Laurent-Perrier champagne bar each look through their own arched, double-height window onto the cobbled street below. The bar itself, lit by a stunning Swarovski crystal chandelier and mirrored to reflect the myriad twinkles of pink spotlights, serves a selection of fine champagnes including the ever-popular Laurent-Perrier rose.

 

Piano Lounge & Cocktail Bar

Comprising a comfortable seating area for pre- and post-dinner drinks, cosy booths for 2 - 4 diners and our busy restaurant bar, the lounge provides the perfect welcome for guests. With a live pianist tinkling the ivories of our baby grand at weekends, under the original vaulted ceiling, it proves a perennially popular space for toasting celebrations. NB: We regret that we cannot always guarantee a table in a particular section (except in the instance of pre-arranged private dining) although we will try to accommodate any preference you might have
