  The Met
by janiebaxter

This pub and restaurant is located in the heart of West Didsbury, which is one of Manchester's best kept secrets. There are many bars and restaurants within a very small area in West Didsbury, and the Met is the biggest and most popular pub. However, you wouldn't come here for the food - there is too much local competition.
The bar area is very large and this where the people who want to see and be seen hang out.
There are side rooms for more privacy, one with a TV. There are also some comfy sofas, but don't expext to get a seat on Friday or Saturday night!
The best feature of this pub is the garden in the summer. It is large and very busy with an outdoor bar and sometimes barbecues.
This is not the place for a quiet drink but if you like a bit of people watching and a lively atmosphere this is the place to go.

Dress Code: Anything goes officially but some dress to impress.
