The Ned is breathtaking and Millies is lovely accompaniment. Food was fine tasty and overall pleasant. Shame it came with dirty cutlery and also a very aloof standoffish waitress who seemed to be annoyed at our mere presence. She was very off putting which was a real shame to what could've been a great expce. All OK but more style over substance. People go there to be seen, not really for any culinary satisfaction.

We stayed the nght at The Ned and the service from all of the staff was second to none. The food in Millie's was very good and the Ned Feast the following day was excellent.
I would not hesitate to recommend.

Amazing experience! It's a beautiful building, lovely ambience and as a bonus there was a jazz singer and band playing in the centre. It felt like just for a moment we could relax! Afternoon tea is good quality - extra sandwiches and tea available with courteous service. I really applaud the staff for their professionalism during this time.

Marvellous breakfast, enjoyed it immensely, it was delicious.
Felt like we could’ve done with a little more light at our table when dining in the evening, it was difficult to see the food on the plate!

I visit Millies regularly.This is the best yet.No change to the food or service as these are always superb.However the ambiance much better as fewer clients and so not as noisy and you could actually listen to the performing artist and talk and hear the person next to you.

I brought my teenage daughters for afternoon tea at The Ned in Millies Lounge as a half term treat. The seating was very comfortable, the setting felt private and the food tasted excellent and was beautifully presented. I deliberately booked one of their later seatings so that we also had live music later on, which was great too. The staff were helpfully attentive and made our visit very special. We had a memorable and lovely relaxed, fun time together. I thought it was good value for money.

Had a lovely time at Millie's Lounge, it was the second time I have been for afternoon tea and it honestly is such a nice experience. The service is excellent and they catered to all our dietary requirements.
The hotel is beautiful and it makes the overall experience very enjoyable.
I look forward to our next visit,

Great for any occasion
The setting makes it worth a visit. An historic banking hall, tastefully converted into several bar areas and restaurants.
Food selection was somewhat limiting and a bit pricey.
However this was more than made up by the live entertainment.
This was a top end wedding band, playing a good mixture of well know tunes past and present. Not too noisy, really classy.

Ordered food at 8.30 and came out within 5 minutes. Clearly pre made and just heated. The chicken in the curry we ordered was over cooked and the dish came with about three mouthfuls of rice. The waiter came over multiple times to clear away our plates even though it was obvious we were still eating. They took forever to bring over our drinks and 5 minutes after receiving them we were told we had to leave (at9.45pm) as the place was closing at 10pm. Didn’t even finish. Not the Ned I’m used to. Won’t be going back anytime soon!

I asked for tablecloth and received an email that this special request would be complied with but of course, when we got there, there was no cloth. Not very happy.

The IPA is not real British IPA and hand pumped, but the waiter did not know the difference and mis-advised me.

We ordered the seafood platter, whilst I appreciate the need to keep fish fresh - it tasted like it had been kept on the ice for too long. I really enjoyed everything else, the platter was just a bit disappointing.
