Metro Garden Restaurant’s beautiful garden is the big draw card at this quirky south London venue. Set just opposite Clapham Common, the bar and its comfy couches boast a view across the park, while out the back there’s a marquee and fully al fresco seating allowing diners to make the most of long summer evenings amongst the potted geraniums and fairy lights. In colder weather, heaters are provided, though there’s also a cosy indoor dining area with church pews and a spacious conservatory to choose from. Modern European cuisine is peppered with more international influences so that duck breast on mash is spiced up with a pecan and cashew crust and kumquat jus and haddock comes with roast sweet potato, green beans and lime crème fraiche. A lot of thought has gone into the extensive wine list. There are also a number of special menus available – weekend brunch, Sunday roast and the ‘Supper Club’ prix fixe menus available Monday to Thursday evenings.

Lunch or dinner are good. Wonderful hidden gem even to some locals perhaps. Food simple but delightful. Staff incredibly welcoming and pleasant. Whether a romantic dinner or Sunday lunch with friends, very much worth the visit.
Found this oasis hidden at the back of the bar. Spent a glorious Sunday having lunch, which was excellent, full Sunday roast all the trimmings was lovely but then we sat in the garden on cushion and big comfy seats. It a had a feel of chill out bar's in Ibiza. Well worth checking out.
The staff are lovely too.
