I recently opened up a bank account with the Reading team. I am extremely happy with Oli's, Luke's and Sukh's customer service. Especially during this pandemic, they went out of their way to keep me informed every step and were courteous, helpful and efficient. I have opened up bank accounts with other banks before and I have never received the level of excellent customer service that I had received from Oli, Luke and Sukh.

The Reading Metrobank branch have some of the most incredible people working there. They are excellent and I can not thank them enough. Metrobank is by far the best bank I have worked with and that is down to these three gentleman! 10/10 stars

Opened my business account on the first day after that I put a application for BBLS they wasted 5 weeks of mine kept asking for same paperwork which were sent few times. I was told lies from there telephone management, after 5 weeks the loan got declined now there is no one who is given loan to new customers.
I did contact CEO MR DANIEL Furmarkin, he was a waste of time also my advise is don't go with this bank there Customer service is so bad it takes over 45min to 1 hour to talk about any issues,
Now I am taking this case to FCO

Please don't waste your time with metro

They simply have no customer service and from my own expereince they do not do business banking. I genuinely can't understand how they get these 5 star reviews, I can only think it's from lucky people (and ONLY personal accounts) who never need to bank to sort anything out. Tried opening a business account to switch to them for my company that have been in business for 30 years, 3 months later still not open. No idea what's going on, can't get ANY sensible replies from Metrobank, can't speak to anyone about it etc etc... constantly told I will be called back, it never happens. So now I have given up and staying where we are. They are impossible to deal with, staff are very friendly but utterly useless and unhelpful. Opening a business account with them seems impossible, they also seem not to want to take international payments which is difficult if you expect to sell anything outside the UK (they claim they do but in reality don't want to, so make it difficult to open an account to recieve payments from abroad). Very strange attitude to business and complete lack of understanding of how any business would operate. Avoid them at all costs and go with a proper bank, it'll save you lots and lots and lots of trouble in the long run. I think we had a lucky escape by NOT switching to them. Dreadful bank.

Not a very nice bank. They like to charge you for doing nothing. Closed that account after paying of any charges to be charged to do that!! Please do not use this bank, they will only look after themselves. No help for customers in a time when I am earning ZERO due to the pandemic!!! Now we own them more money and they have closed any complaint when we told them not to!

The service to small businesses is a disaster.

Issues raised, are ignored, your business account manager/s never calls back and talking to them is waste of time, although very polite, they do nothing for you. In the current situation, I asked for a reasonable small loan to prevent losing the business. They "kindly" offered me a loan, charging 10% interest (the Bank of England interest is about 0.1%), I am disgusted!

Unfortunately I had the most painful experience with this bank. On July 2019 my business account was frozen without any prior notification. I called them to find out what the reason was and they just confirmed the restriction without giving any reason. This is while several direct debits, card transactions, customer payments they all went on hold and my business suffered financial losses. A few days later I noticed that my personal account with my life savings inside it also got restricted. No reason, no clarification, no updates! Exact same thing happened to several other people who happened to be Iranian nationals. Having consulted with experienced solicitors, I have strong grounds to believe this was done based on a discriminatory measure to racially profile citizens and dual nationals of a certain country i.e. Iran. For more than 6 months my life savings were stuck in this bank without giving me any reason or a time frame within which they aim to complete their so called review. It was yesterday that I received a letter giving me a 60 day notice for closing my account after 6 months of so called "review". I went through the most stressful days of my life throughout this period and had to cancel my holiday as I was left penniless. I borrowed money from family and friends to afford my life. Lack of decency, professionalism and ethics in this bank is beyond comprehension. Not recommended at all, stay away!

24/7 phone lines with quick answering by real people; early and late opening stores and at weekends, cards printed same day, card readers set u - all of the stuff they do to make it convenient for the customer.

The tech is really good with AI built in to help manage unexpected transactions or new payments. My favourite is when I’l waiting for a payment and the app lets me know when it’s arrived. Makes money much more manageable.

But the biggest thing I find when I speak to Metro Bank colleagues, is the real care for people. Genuinely, everyone wants to do their best for each and every customer. They’re driven and motivated and it’s great to see they’re up there at the British Bank Awards.

No wonder so many companies are switching their business accounts across.

I switched mid way through 2019 as an RBS customer that was asked to leave for a large payout. Outstanding service from Metro, reliable points (yes more than one!) of contact and my accounts team are delighted with the digital platform. 10 months in and I’m still delighted. Thanks Metro.

Easy, convenient and customer focused

From the minute I walked in the service was phenomenal. The staff can't do enough for you and everything is done on the day, and I mean everything. I walked out with an account opened, my card and online banking done!
