. 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.

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.

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!

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.....

Un moment magique dans ce petit restaurant de Londres. Ambiance tamisée et musique qui s'y accorde, plats délicieux. Idéal pour un diner en amoureux ! Au prochain voyage à Londres, il est évident qu'on y retournera. En espérant que le temps nous permettra de voir le petit jardin.. L'accueil est parfait, merci à eux pour ce beau moment.

Restaurant is really cute and perfect for a quite dinner. Food is lovely, but if you are vegan I would recommend to get in touch with restaurant directly and do not rely on booking special requests as we came the waiter had no idea that one of us were vegan, therefore the chef did mix the food and it was a good experience.

Overall had a lovely night catching up with a girlfriend. Staff very friendly and accommodating - making us cosmopolitan cocktails which weren't on the menu. Food was fantastic and the atmosphere. Could improve on service as we had to ask for the menus etc,,, not sure if they cover specific tables as we had 3 different people serve us.....Will return again for sure...Marian

Food was superb, and staff are great - good for a chat. Very relaxed and fun feeling to the place. Has a great low-key vibe to it. House wine is yum too. Nicely decorated and not pretentious at all. Need more places like this in Clapham! Will definitely go here again.

The Sunday roasts were excellent, veggies cooked to perfection, meat very tender and my husband's beef was as pink as he likes it. The freshly cooked chocolate brownie pudding with vanilla ice-cream was divine. Highly professional and friendly staff who made is feel very welcome and relaxed.

We had excellent service and wonderful food. The staff are easy going but professional and attentive. The food was delivered promptly, and was very tasty. The Garden is just lovely on a summer's evening. Highly recommended for a "date night".

The garden is so beautiful and calming. My partner and I split four starters and were very satisfied. The tuna and the duck egg bruschetta were very tasty but scallops and ginger pig meatloaf were our favorites. Will definitely be returning.
