We had a really poor experience. My guest was taken to a table in a restaurant behind Electric Diner resulting in us being delayed by half an hour and frustrated. I ordered poached eggs on sourdough with two rashers of bacon. I was served one poached egg on a small plate and two bowls of bacon. No sourdough toast. It was a terrible experience

Food was ok, typical diner food, average, nothing special really didn't justify the cost. Service was horrendous our waiter had a massive chip on his shoulder, terrible attitude in fact quite rude, told me I couldn't order my children milkshakes as he needed the table back when we had 35 minutes left until the table had to be vacated.
Shame really as I love the Ned but wouldn't return now, much better placed for this type of food in London and definitely better service, hope this waiter sees this and might be a bit nicer in future.

The food was great however the staff who were lovely were very busy. Arrived for table at 7.05 and didn't have our food order taken for about 45minutes. Only allowed the table for an 1hour and 30 minutes so felt very rushed after the food arrived.

Music was too loud - live band made it difficult to hear and speak if you wanted to meet and catchup.
Food was ok - nothing special. The venue is lovely which helps take some of the downside away. Very busy and very popular. Overall its ok.

I will start by saying I really like The Ned and what it offers. I ate often at Zoblers so I was sad that it closed and decided to try Electic Bar which has opened in its place. I know there is a premium in the City and especially somewhere like the Ned, but the prices are outrageous. £16 for a (pretty small) chicken burger and then another fiver for some chips is daylight robbery. There is no chicken burger on earth that is worth £16. Sad to say that I'll be giving this a miss unless someone else is paying!

My friends and I visited this place yesterday for the first time, we had a pre dinner drinks before moving to Kaia.
We had an amazing time, the place was very nice and a special thank you to “Salvatore” that looked after us and also escorted us to Kaia after drinks.
We really enjoyed it 🤗

One of the first places booked in for when lockdown restrictions had eased.

Attending most weekends before lockdown restrictions, I noticed that the menu prices had increased, which I wouldn't have minded so much. However, I noticed that when ordering my meal, that a few corners had been cut on the quality of the food produced compared to before lockdown. This is a shame as the service and ambience are always great. With the move to reduce certain access to some restaurants to non-members, I would caution this approach in potentially alienating non-members from attending, particularly if there is potentially a drop in overall quality . The Ned sits amongst a number of great restaurants in the area with the same price range. Paying 'for the view' is not enough in this context.

After having appetisers in the afternoon to dinner in the evening, you can see why we spent so much time in this place! The Ned always has a great atmosphere and Electric has accompanied that superbly not only great for good food but the service from our waiter David was fantastic and he was a good laugh, we will be coming back after the baby is born so my partner can try the cocktails! Very laidback and chilled out and never felt under pressure to leave either like you may get in London restaurants these days!!! From entering the restaurant with the host to leaving It was a great night!

Lovely place, they did allow a table with group of people to have a couple standing, this then had a complaint from another table, as it is not Ali ud, I was sat very close to another table but I am ok with it, may be not for some one that is still a little anxious
Food amazing and would go back

Very officious over the new Covid tier restrictions which is fair enough but doesn’t add to the experience. The staff were determined that under no circumstances could their be an alcoholic drink on the table without plates of food, and as soon as you finished they plates were whipped away.
We left and found a pub where it was more relaxed and enjoyable.
