    What an absolute treat our vegan afternoon tea was! An amazing, delicious array of food, explained to us in full by our bubbly and attentive waiter, unlimited tea in a host of blends, and a glass of Prosecco thrown in for Christmas. We couldn’t manage the doughnuts, so they came home to two happy children. There was a lovely atmosphere, the staff seem to love working there. It also snowed so we got another treat looking out of the large windows. This tea was a gift, but I’d definitely treat myself again in future, and would love to gift an afternoon tea to a friend too.

    Our afternoon tea was lovely and there was so much food we couldn’t eat it all. The tea menu was just right with not an overwhelming number of teas to choose from. The variety of teas was perfect. All in all, a lovely afternoon with great savories and delicious cakes. Highly recommended!!

    A nice meal but a shame that the experience of it was diminished by the changing of the ambience. A lot of mid century decor as opposed to deco, and the staff don't dress up any more! It didn't feel as special as it used to which is a real shame. It's been an annual event for us to dress up and go for an afternoon tea but it felt a bit corporate this time

    The staff were really lovely and the range of teas they have was impressive, but overall the quality of the food (which was ok) wasn't at all worth the money. for £30 (plus 10% service added to that) per person, I would have expected superior, home-made jam and pastries... I'd say the quality of the food was very good but not excellent and definitely not much better than what you can find for less than half the price elsewhere. The scones particularly were a bit dry... We wanted and expected a unique, high-quality culinary experience and we sadly didn't get that. No wonder the place was almost empty - way too expensive for what they offer.

    The service was very good and the staff were excellent. We were both fairly disappointed with the afternoon tea that we were served. No sandwiches as advertised just a small piece of sausage roll a little savoury and another small little thing. Then 2 very small scones with a jar or jam to share and again small amount of cream and then 3 dinky sweet treats. Wouldn’t go again due to not good value for money

    This was a Christmas gift from my son for my sister and I. We had a lovely time. Metro deco is beautifully decorated and we received a warm welcome. We had preordered one vegan and one ordinary afternoon tea. I’ve had vegan afternoon teas before with dense cakes and scones like bricks. Not at Metrodeco. The cakes and scones were superb. The savouries were delicious too and the vegan cheese pie was wonderful. Vegan cheese can be revolting but this tasted so good.

    I had an incredible afternoon tea experience at Metrodeco! The atmosphere was cozy and vibrant, with absolutely beautiful decor. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, creating a mix of vegan and vegetarian nibbles for my friend and I! The tea was sensational with a variety to select from -- and more than I could drink in one sitting. I was blown away by the treats - freshly baked and a nice mix of sweet and savoury! Lastly, fantastic value for money- would definitely go back and highly recommend to anyone visiting Brighton. :)

    Having chosen A Gin afternoon tea with a voucher I had been given for my 60th birthday it had taken 18 months to achieve due to Covid …. But it was definitely worth the wait!! The usual selection of sandwiches has been replaced by homemade hummus, carrot pate, a locally sourced sausage roll and a cheese savoury - each one a tasting experience in itself followed by scones and a lovely selection of cakes. The menu of teas was 2 pages long and we tried as many as we could! Graham and his team were really welcoming and friendly and we will definitely be finding a reason to return soon!
