El Metro II (that's a Roman 'two', not a double 'L', and number I is in Fulham) has been going since 1988 when it replaced a pub called the Doctor's Dilemma, and is literally a couple of metres from the ticket barrier at Hammersmith Metropolitan Line station. It is sometimes billed as a Spanish restaurant but it's really more a Spanish theme pub with Spanish beer, tapas, and used to have lambada dancing on a Friday night. I am not sure the staff are all Spanish-speaking however, quite probably Eastern European, not that there is anything wrong with that but (i) get an idea of what's on the menu and what the names sound like, and (ii) would it kill you to smile? The other waitress is quite capable of smiling and is probably Latin American.
All that said, after twenty years the place is beginning to look a bit tired. Same old decor it had at the start, pretty much, and the toilets are awful. Quite possibly they always have been awful and that isn't just the anti-English graffiti in them (a charming feature (not) they have been known to share with some of the Irish pubs around the Broadway). A few weeks ago we had a stonking night out there, ate, drank and danced like good 'uns, but much of the food wasn't all that, and the bill is printed in such tiny printing that it can be very difficult to read especially after a few jarras de vino.
Good for: flat out or fall off (censored version there).
Not good for: modern Spanish cuisine or discussing the works of Blasco Ibanez.
