This was across the street from the Airbnb we were staying at and near Herod's. Beautiful little place and food was well presented and good tasting. We heard that they were going to stop Lunch service which is too bad.

Had lunch here and we were impressed with the quality of food and service. They serve sandwiches and we had fish and chips which were great. Good location just off the beaten path from Harrod's. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This restaurant is phasing out of Dinner service, and will only provide Breakfast and Lunch. Too bad as their Fish and Chips are excellent partly due to the fresh fish delivered daily via the Outlaw Restaurant.

This place right by Harrods has the best fish & chips I had in London. Cooked to perfection delicious tartar sauce and delicious fries. In a simple and cheap place, specially if you consider the neighborhood. Go !

Seeing that Metro was rated the best Fish & Chips in Knightsbridge and not wanting to pay the Harrods price, I gave it a try. Though adding chives to the batter did give the fish a nice flavor, the size of the fish was less...More

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this

The Metro Restaurant and Bar is often referred to as a Knightsbridge hidden gem. The Restaurant is a haven away from the busy pace around Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the shops surrounding Basil Street. Open from 7:30am until late each day, The Metro serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon teas and dinner. Our ever revolving menu has a selection of grazing plates to share as well as classic British favourites such as fish & chips, shepherd's pie and double baked souffle. The open kitchen adds to the informal atmosphere and focuses on using seasonal English produce. Enjoy Happy Hour every week day between 5-7pm; two glasses of house wine and a bowl of nachos £8.00 See our Set Menu; 2 courses for £14.00 or 3 for £18.00 Opening hours: Mon-Sat 7.30am - 10pm, Sun 7.30am - 5pm. Private hire up to 40 available.
