The Metropolitan

Squaremeal Review of The Metropolitan ?

Where The Metropolitan leads, other musically inclined pubs tend to follow. For a start, this large, unpretentious boozer – a hop & a skip from Westbourne Park tube – attracts an enthusiastic crowd with its regular programme of live bands & weekend DJs: the ‘Portobello acoustic sessions’, which take place in the upstairs lounge on Thursday evenings, provide a platform for new musical talent (an unsigned Ellie Goulding once played here) with four acts playing for free each week. On the last Sunday of each month, you can also tuck in to a roast lunch to the laid-back sounds of live jazz. Meanwhile, the dark downstairs bar with its quirky tasselled lampshades serves London-brewed Camden Pale Ale, plus lagers & a well-edited wine list. Foodwise, sharing plates top the charts.

My burger tasted like it had been sitting around for ages – very poor. My friend had the...

I've been here a handful of times and in the last few years and the atmosphere never disappoints. The crowd is mid 20s and the pub is lively with live music or a good playlist! It's a great place to go out on a Saturday night. The only thing they could improve on is the menu – some nights they limit it to items from the “small dishes” menu. I still haven't figured out when/why…
