Airy Victorian railway hotel and gastro-pub

At a glance

Bar menu
Free Wi-Fi

‘The Met’ is well situated in the leafy suburb of West Didsbury on the old Midland Railway line into Manchester. Its Victorian heritage – decorative floor tiling, ornate windows and huge airy interior filled with antique tables, chairs and deep sofas – attracts a mainly young and cosmopolitan crowd. The drinks choice matches customer demand with nearly 30 wines sold by the glass, popular beers and bottled craft ciders. The bar and terrace menu offers pizzas and salads, while the restaurant carte is high on brasserie appeal: confit duck and kale hash with fried duck egg and brown sauce, for example; and the famous Met burger made from 28-day aged beef.
