What about these eclectic dishes? The Metro Garden menu includes pecan and cashew crusted duck breast on creamed mash with kumquat jus or parmesan gnocchi with walnut pesto and fresh rocket.

Metro's shabby chic interior makes you feel immediately at home. The gardens really are the jewels in the Metro crown.
great atmosphere and great food! Excellent location, very convenient for the station. A bit cold for the garden but it looked like a great space! Perfect for groups! Will be back.
Delicious food, friendly staff, lovely ambiance Been coming here on and off for 15 years and still love it. Only minor downside is that some of the chairs are a bit wobbly
Fabulous Sunday roast and lovely staff as always. In such a good location on the edge of Clapham common Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Fran
. The garden is so beautiful, everything look nice, music is perfect. The food is really good and I highly recommend the Sunday Roast. The lady who owns the place is super friendly. I would go again and definitily I would recommend to everybody. Great place to celebrate a special day with friends or family.
Important things first the food was divine, the service was friendly and helpful, they were happy to accommodate me being gluten free and the wine was really lovely. The setting was the reason we chose this particular restaurant, it has a beautiful garden area, unfortunately it bucketed it down that day so when we arrived we had been moved to an indoor marquee area, still garden-esk and very pretty and daintily set out with bricked walls and twinkling fairy lights. But to be honest the indoor was also very chic and quaint so I wouldn't have minded being sat in there either! But for when the weather is nice the "secret" garden looks cute and spacious! One tiny tiny word of warning, not that it bothered me but might bother others, they offer bread when you sit down but it isn't free it's a £1. All in all a truly lovely evening and I would happily return!
Wonderful meal at Metro Garden, beautiful rustic setting with lovely fairy lights which made the atmosphere just perfect. The food was excellent too. We were a small hen party and quite loud but the staff left us to it topping up the prosecco when required...hopefully the others diners weren't too disturbed by us! I'd recommend this restaurant especially in the warmer weather to enjoy the garden at the back.
The food and ambience are fantastic. Great eclectic but not over the top decor. Unfortunately, we were downwind of smokers and had to move inside from the beautiful secluded feeling garden, but even in the extended part it feels like you are in a covered outdoor space. The wine list and menu are simple but fantastic in value and taste! Can't fault the service which is friendly and unobtrusive. All in all, a new place that we can't believe we haven't come across and will definitely visit again. Highly recommended.
I took my boyfriend for dinner last Friday evening and we had a great time! The food was average (main course lamb had a really sweet crumb - a little too much maple) and they had run out of a couple of wines which was a shame, but overall we were well looked after and once a few more tables arrived the atmosphere was nice too! I would recommend checking in advance if the garden has a private booking as we had hoped for pre dinner drinks out there but it was not available. Also, don't get there before 8pm on a Friday night as it will be empty!
Had a lovely dinner with a friend under the sunset in the secret garden of Clapham. I love the charm and setting so please never make it modern as this makes it a perfect setting for dinner with a friend or celebrating a special occasion. Food lovely, service very attentive and th house wine is very good. Until next time, I plan my escape to the Secret garden with friends.
Metro is a long-standing favourite and a safe bet for a lovely atmosphere, terrific service with a smile and great quality food. they are also very flexible and accommodating where 'tweaks' are requested due to food intolerances. No exception tonight, although I did report back that my fillet of sea bass was a little on the meagre side I comparison to their usual quality. Otherwise, all good in the Metro hood.....
