Unusually quiet but understandable in current climate. Service was amazing! Food superb as always. Highly appreciative of COVID spread prevention efforts. Worry free dining. Will be back soon.

Our break lockdown meal was a bit surreal to be honest and the ‘Feast’ was a bit of a disappointment after our previous visits with no buffet and a pretty small menu to chose from.
Vegetables were a let down with thick carrots which reminded me of school dinners.
Service was attentive but the atmosphere was morbid frankly.

Fabulous Sunday Lunch. It was our first meal out after lockdown and we wanted to go somewhere we felt would have lots of safety measures and we chose the right place. Plenty space, hand sanitiser and easy qr code menu. The three course lunch was great value and the staff were really helpful and took great care of everyone Our waitress was particularly lovely. We will be back soon.

Great venue - but the food offering at Millie's is not so great: A bit school dinner-ish in my opinion. Maybe we should have gone into one of the other restaurant areas at the NED? However - we enjoyed the evening very much: Live music - great, and service - very good.

Was not impressed with breakfast here . Service was ok but nothing special . Mushrooms on toast with poached egg was fine but not super tasty which they have to be if you are charging that much . No salt and pepper pots on table and one butter between two .
I would prefer the Ivy or Duck and Waffle next time

Entering the Ned you feel like to have entered into another world and time. The up-and-coming musicians on a Monday are very talented and entertaining to watch.

Only thing that needs working on is some of the staff are a bit rude and not very smiley.
Dark hair girl with tattoos all down her right arm ( not being judgmental, couldn't catch her name) she was very miserable.
Overall was great food, service and atmosphere.

The staff were rude, we had to chase them to order drinks 20 minutes after being seated. We had to borrow salt, pepper and cutlery from other tables which whilst not a big deal, with a compulsory service charge added to the bill was not what is expected. Have been many other times and has never been this bad. Such a shame

The service was very good, we were 4, 2 standard afternoon tea and 2 special ones, one for a vegetarian and 1 for a person with diabetes and they were both very good, thank you for the special attention.

Very good experience. The building is truly spectacular and it’s hard not to be impressed. I used it when it was a bank and they’ve really done it justice with this conversion.
Breakfast was good, nothing spectacular, and good coffee too. Service was a little mixed but the place was busy.
I’d highly recommend for casual meetings, or breakfast catch ups.

This was a wonderful spot for a cream tea. The venue is lovely, the scones were fluffy and warm and the service was quick.

We went on a Thursday afternoon and the vibe certainly changed after 5pm as the apres work crowd came in, but it was still very enjoyable.

I will certainly be back again.

A good place for a business breakfast - tables separated enough to be able to have a discreet conversation, effiicent but unobtrusive service, quiet enough to hear yourselves talk and think, good reception for phones/internet. not stupidly expensive either. And in the heart of the city.

The restaurant and dining experience was excellent. However, we were very disappointed by having a 12.5% service charge added to our bill for pre-dinner drinks when my husband went to the bar to purchase them and brought them to where we were standing - there was no service element entailed at all apart from the barman pouring the drinks. Obviously, we expected to pay a service charge for our meal and its accompaniments, but there is no need for such a well-respected, popular venue to impose such a charge for the 'self-service' purchase of drinks at the bar.

We had to chase a waiter to take our order and some of our drinks didn't ever arrive. Shame as the setting is good for working breakfasts and not too loud but the service really let them down.

Millies is a great place. It's over priced but has excellent service. The small menu is quite good but not the most inspiring.

A surprising lack of spreads for toast and the crumpets, healthy sized serves and a top ambience.
