We tried this place the last time we were in Keswick and enjoyed it so wanted to go back. We went with our two young sons and had a great meal. We booked a table which was the right thing to do as many people came in and were not able to get a table. Staff were very friendly. Our boys had hotdogs from the children's menu. The menu doubled as an activity sheet which many places do but this kept both of them entertained for a long time. Their meals looked good and decent portions. They come with refills of squash in cups with lids which our boys thought was great. Husband and I both had burgers and they were good and generous portions. All in all just what you need for a family meal with young children. Good, not too expensive food, friendly staff and things to keep the children entertained.

Went here for a quick bite on a Saturday evening. Staff very welcoming and helpful. We both had burgers and chips which were delicious and not too expensive. Would defiantly recommend this place and would go back.

Really wanted to eat here but had snacked elsewhere throughout the day, gutted as the food looked brilliant! We just had coffee which was lovely but having seen the food would love to return to try it! Lots of happy faces...

Been to this restaurant a few times so we knew it was always best to book in advance.. so when we arrived in Keswick we went past and booked for 7 pm that same night..we arrived 10 minutes early. Only to see our reserved table been giving away to someone who hadn't booked. We were then told the only table left was the stand by table next to kitchen/ toilet area.. didn't go there to be sat next to the toilets .. the guy behind the bar didn't really seem that bothered that we booked in advance, he and the other waitress only seemed bothered about getting people in and sat anywhere...what's the point in having a booking system if you don't stick to it,,
We left and spent the next 40 minutes trying to find somewhere else to eat on a busy night in Keswick ...
We'll certainly not be going back to the bar metro bar & grill,,,

We needed a place to have dinner on our final day in Keswick- we were a big party (6 adults, and 7 children all 6 & under) and we wanted some good food. One of our party is from North Carolina, and wanted to see if Bar Metro could deliver some good American food

Metro doesn't look like it would accommodate such a big group, but they have a delightful upper room, right next to the kitchen & W.C that meant we didn't have to worry about disturbing other diners. The kids were entertained while waiting for their food by watching traffic, and the thoughtful kids menus (colouring, and other activities... as well as bottomless squash!)

The service was ace.

We really felt looked after, and the pace of delivery was just so. A member of our party is dairy free, and there was no hint of this being a problem... likewise for their infant son.

The menu is comprehensive, covering all the staples in a Tex Mex sort of way. There are a good mix of burgers, as well as vegetarian options to suit tastes too.

The drinks selection is also great, with root beer(!), and hard milkshakes if you wanted (milkshakes with a shot of alcohol in).

I had the 'guest burger' - which had jalapeños, Monterey Jack cheese, and a thin slice of steak (covered in a herb crumb & fried). It was really well cooked, well presented, and tasted ace. The mix of textures from the burger, cheese, bun, and steak worked well.

The kids meals were well sized, and presented. I'd say they were perhaps a little plain- but there is only so much you can do with a frankfurter I suppose.

I would definitely recommend Bar Metro, and I'll go go back when I return to Keswick- it'll probably turn into a family tradition while there for the convention as the kids loved it!

Good food, good location, good atmosphere & environment, and great service.
