    Hi will I need to patch this before tileing? It's not very deep.

    Metro tiles?


    Prob be OK. I usually have a bit of rapid set tile adhesive on the van or rapid set cement, so would level up with that. I wouldn't go out of your way to get any if that though. Could Wang a bit of filler in it if its particularly deep if you have some.
    If not, just spot a bit of extra adhesive on the back to keep the tile level with the others. Its only a kitchen splashback, so will be fine.

    Not metro tiles but they are brick shape

    I do have some patching plaster, would it be worth filling it in with that?

    As CGN said, just a little extra adhesive on a few of the tiles to keep it all level.
