Metro Bank, without explanation or notice, froze my account completely when I tried to make a transfer. I have never had this situation before with any other bank, they wanted to know the nature of the initial deposits into the account made over a month ago which I only found out after ringing them. Had to make numerous calls over several days to resolve the matter, in most cases their responses were inconsistent, some staff totally immature, inexperienced and unprofessional. Had to obtain advice from the financial ombudsman and also reported to the financial conduct authority. There are several examples online of Metro Bank doing the same to other customers. The bank never put anything in writing, no updates or calls. They only lifted the restriction on my account after I threatened to sue. This bank gave me week of misery and undue stress, I am glad I have now switched to HSBC. In summary, Metro Bank very poor service and far from professional compared to high street banks.

Fresh new branch approach

Held a Metro account for four years now and it’s been a great bank. Branch (store!) opening hours are great, the branches are clean, bright and Buck the stuffy high street branch trend of other banks. Staff are friendly, often chosen for being new to b...

Held a Metro account for four years now and it’s been a great bank. Branch (store!) opening hours are great, the branches are clean, bright and Buck the stuffy high street branch trend of other banks. Staff are friendly, often chosen for being new to banking but that doesn’t mean their competency is questionable- quite the opposite. Joy to deal with, just a shame they are all in the South of England!

Simply the best bank on the high street

Open my account without any fuss. Set up online banking, which was my choice. Printed my card there and then. Best interaction I’ve had in a bank brilliant

Friendly and helpful staff combined with modern banking

Friendly staff give clear explanations about the services offered / asked for. Account opening was a doddle and I left the branch with debit card in hand and online banking set-up and ready to be used.

Metro is fantastic!

Super quick account opening. Walked into branch with no appointment. Walked out 15 mins later with an account, card in my wallet, internet and mobile banking all set-up and I’d had a cup of tea too!

When one of the big high-street banks couldn't change my wife's account to her married name after two appointments and then telling us it would take 10 days... we walked into Metro Bank.

40 minutes later, we'd opened a joint account and walked out with debit cards, a chequebook and working internet banking. Our nearest branch is open both days of the weekend which makes it so much easier if we need to go there. The staff are always exceptionally helpful - and the dog gets free biscuits.

So convenient, great customer service, everything you need in a bank

Metro Bank is so customer focussed. They stay open late for those of us that work in the day and can't make it to the bank, they treat you well in the branch, and they even look after your dog!

Every time I've needed help it's always been done straightaway. I've always experienced great customer service and the bank itself is open longer hours and more accessible. It was easier to open a current account, I was also given a tour around and made to feel important.
