"This place has been under new management for the last 18months, It is a well presented trendy bar with a wide range of cocktails, food is served during the day with nice friendly staff. The only downside is the toilets tend to be smelly but have improved recently."

"I agree with mr truth, this place has shut down! Nacht likee it was, taken back by th'landlord. Hadee ha! I never liked their steaks anyway, have you ever wondered why there are no dobermans in town. I wonder if the owners will turn it into a lapdancing venue. Thats what t'word on the street is!"

"The comments about this establishment are laughable, as is the bar itself. I can only think that the authors either have a vested interest in Metro or else they have never set foot outside of Lancaster in their lives.
Metro is poor, poor, poor. It's like being in an early Tom Cruise film except with one of the Chuckle Brothers and located in Pontins. Avoid."

"An ok bar but a bit overpriced and a serious lack of draught beers available. Good collection of exhibitions there though."

"Bizarre but fascinating design mix, halfway between bling-bling and a bad copy of a 70s bar, with its white floor and weird black baroque designs round the huge mirrors. It looks like it's aimed at prostitutes and footballers. I really like it! The nights with the band Get Carter are especially good."

"What an atrocity........
All the other wannabe cocktail bars in Lancaster are, this is the best by far. Everyone else should take note of what they do and how they do it. Beautiful girls, well trained with a product knowledge second to none. Why can't every bar be as versatile as this than some corporation dictating you will make drinks this way with only these ingredients, I waited 10 minutes for 3 Mojito's made with Bacardi 8. But what a wait, the barstaff talked me through the process of producing the best Mojito I have ever tasted. They offered variants, So i tried a fantastic vanilla & a rich mango one. On my next visit the staff remembered me and asked straight Mojito sir? I felt like a celebrity. I declined the mojito, and tried the managers specialities one bombay bramblette, and a tennesse berry mule - the latter you wouldn't even know it was made with Jack Daniels single barrel until the aftertaste, JD & berries & ginger who would have imagined. I'm going back to work my way through the cocktails and the new food menu."

"What a mad mixture, a bar & grill & a fine dining restaurant all under the same roof. Classic, c#ontemporary & very stylish layout & thats just the new cocktail menu. Spare a moment to look at the fantastic new photography on the walls. I read an article about art in pubs in the guardian. Well done the sun hotel, and all the others but I think you will find that Sante was the first place in town to showcase local artists. Its amazing the sheer beauty and not too much either. The staff are by far the best in town surpassing all other establishments, they are friendly helpful and full of energy. (Check out the hot coffee coloured manager mmmmm) They have by far the best food in town and serve all day from the lunchtime right through to closing without a break most days, unknown in most venues!"

"a little rose among the weeds of this street truly a awesome bar, people accutally think its expensive because the auroura surrounding it, but they shudnt judge a book by its cover actually very resonable priced bar, that supplies all modern day drinks if its not on the sante cocktail list then its not worth drinkin, the staff are excellent and always strive to improve themselves especialy the indian guy, raj (i beleieve his name to be)and anthony (legend). "

"Change of management here earlier this year - very different place now. Food is absolutely amazing, absolute top class nosh and nowhere near as expensive as it used to be. Paid £53 for a meal for two (three courses) and a bottle of wine - would have paid £100 for something similar in Manchester. Top top place. Tip of the day - go on Friday cos Saturday is always completely packed."

"A great addition to the pub scene of Lancaster. Certainly much better now than when it was first oopened. I don't know why it took so long to soften it as it was always too over the top before. Food fantastic, choice amazing. A must see."

"I eat at the resturant on Friday with a number of friends and found the food excellent. The wine list was extensive and of high quality. Staff were very attentive at all times. I hope this place takes off it would be a shame if we lost a great venue in Lancaster, I would highly recommed this to all. "

"Enormously improved restaurant - I ate there about 3 months ago and it was just average - it's dramatically better now. Fantastic food, really never seen before in Lancaster - every dish is a work of art - I heartily recommend this place, I've been waiting for something like this to arrive in Lancaster for years. Didnt really venture into the bar, however it seemed to have a simple but very modern style to it. Oh - the bar was absolutely packed - this place is getting busy !"
On 16-10-2004 palerosez42 said :
"Love it here. It's been taken over recently and you can tell - much less pretentious than it used to be - now a real bar for real people. I paid £2.30 for a shot 2 months ago (last time i was here) now it's £1.70, the beers are more varied and the music is less ridiculous !! They're getting draught beer next week apparently, which will make the place even more attractive. Talking of attractive, the place is full of girls - they love it here - when the draught arrives it'll become a place frequented by both sexes Im sure ! A place to be seen in..."

"I like this place and I've given it top marks because it's taken risks. There is nothing else like this in Lancaster. It takes bar design to a new level (like it or not) in Lancaster. Cutting edge design, exceptional lighting and fittings (chairs, tables etc) straight out of a designer magazine. Needs a little more work, needs to be more user friendly but you can't fault the effort. Not tried the restaurant - but I've wandered around it - quite simply it's a beautiful looking restaurant."
On 10-5-2004 tinytony said :
"Not eaten here yet but I have frequented the bar once or twice. Nice array of beers and cocktails, the music has become much more commercial as they attempt to broaden their appeal. However, it remains a bar years ahead of it's time and probably a little too ahead for Lancaster."
On 31-1-2004 dale said :
"Food in restaurant is of a high quality, though portions could be a little bigger for the money!
Be wary of Friday and Saturday nights, food can take a little while to be served.
One night I went it was very slow, although this was recognised by the staff and we got a free bottle of wine as compensation.
The bar downstairs is quite upmarket for Lancaster."
