Really enjoyed it. Atmosphere was lovely. Wish we had gone to the roof terrace
Great ambience and service, food is of a high standard and an all round lovely experience
Fabulous breakfast with excellent service. Highly recommend.
Delicious food, delightful atmosphere and service.
Enjoyed the ambience and food. The mushroom pate with the mushroom and poached eggs was a pleasant surprise.
Food, service and the surroundings were fantastic. It made a great weekend even better and as a result I have applied for NED friends membership today.
I love it here
Good value for money
Great! Only thing was it was meant to be £35 each. Then they called and said it's changed to £50 each but when the bill came it was actually £60 each.
Food was tasty but the bill was a bit annoying.
Millie's was stunning, amazing atmosphere and incredible service. The waiting stuff were attentive and even brought out a little surprise for my pregnant friend. Couldn't reccomend enough
Very pleasant experience for my lunch with an old school friend
We spent our wedding anniversary at the Ned for dinner, two great bands on, great food, service and ambience, it’s definitely where it’s at and we will certainly be going back to The Ned.
Seats very uncomfortable, otherwise all good
Staff were superb. When we arrived a jazz singer plus guitarist were playing who were excellent.
Sadly, the 'music' that followed was far from it , not well played 60's covers .
Sounded like a local band at a village hall wedding. Not the Ned's style I think.
Lovely afternoon tea. Veggie options could be a bit better but the rest of the food was delicious. Service was brilliant. We really enjoyed it. Thank you very much
The food was great but the service was cold and unfriendly especially the miserable hostess who took us through to the table. I had put in my notes in advance that I'm pregnant and would like a table which offered good back support and when we arrived she said we'll be seated where we're told to sit.
For £30pp for afternoon tea (£40pp if you opt for champagne), the price is fair but I'd rather pay extra and go somewhere like Sketch else that treats the experience like the special occasion it is - or is generally just nice to the guests. All the staff seemed like they'd rather not be there. I wouldn't recommend Millie's Lounge or go again.
The the ambience and live music and food was tasty
The food was amazing and the service was just as great. Def recommend
Welcome upon arrival was amazing, atmosphere in bar and restaurant was so delightful and to have live music varied throughout the evening was an absolute joy.
Quality of food incredible and service was not rushed and very thoughtful.
Highly recommend staying at the Ned as it caters for every whim.
Amazing...would 100 percent recommend millies, definitly going to go back again...Best steak and sea food I have ever eaten
Disappointed. Wasn’t as good as reviews say. The service was terrible.
Arrived early and had drink in bar area, good table service. Went on to have a lovely meal, a bit pricey but it doesn’t happen often, the service was very good and there was a good atmosphere
Lovely atmosphere and very good food. Worth visiting
Perfect stay at the Ned and the service at Millies was outstanding.
Jack the GM made us feel so special. Highly recommend.
Was great to be back at the Ned , great staff , great food and great atmosphere. Always a very warm welcome
Good atmosphere,very large food portions.Sparkling water ordered x2 received 3.Hot milk not served with Americans coffee,but coffee replaced.
We arrived at 11:30 and the team said we either had to order within the next 5 minutes or wait for lunch, which we couldn’t order until 12:00 - which would be an issue as they needed the table back by 13:00. This was repeated three times by different team members. Then somebody else said they’d spoken to the chef and we could order lunch early. It seemed quite chaotic and maybe they shouldn’t take reservations for this time. Service was sloppy - we were given cutlery but our napkin also contained cutlery. We were given butter, which was then taken away, and then returned all before we had been given bread. Ketchup and mustard appeared after we had paid the bill and then disappeared. Food was average. We had pea soup (nice) and steak tartare (not great) followed by a Caesar salad (drowning in dressing) and fish and chips (just okay). With water and automatically added service charge it came to over £75. The Ned is beautiful, but this was not a good dining experience and we won’t be back.
So lovely! The live music was amazing. Great ambience and food was divine
The waiters were very attentive and the waitress was very friendly. The food quality was great as always!
Outstanding. Great for a special occasion! Definitely go back
Always great food, and great discrete service. Wonderful place for catch-ups with old friends.
Waitress was moody sat night. Breakfast was record breaking late which was disappointing
Amazing service, food and ambiance - we went for my boyfriends birthday and it was perfect. The staff were amazing and the food was delicious. The band really added to the atmosphere and were the perfect accompaniment to an amazing meal.
Had a lovely meal in Millie’s, whilst staying at The Ned. The fish and chips were amazing, atmosphere was great and service was brilliant. Such a beautiful building.
Great atmosphere, good food, fine drinks and music to accompany.
Take friends, family or simply your whoever you want.
A great venue with lovely live music and a vibrant atmosphere. Recommended.
Iv been here so many times and have always loved it. We went for our first time of being allowed to eat in anywhere for a while, when we ordered our food, we didn’t want anything big so we wanted starters and sides. We got told we needed to order a main, I asked why and they couldn’t really tell us the reasoning, I asked why sides and starters were not enough and he said ‘ok that’s fine’ Then an hour later the table behind us all sits there with just chips but this table was VERY pretty too look at so I wonder if it was because of that. We then kept being reminded of the time we had on the table, even though there was a lot of tables empty behind us.
After we left millies we asked if there were any other tables in the building and we were told no. Then we went to the Nickle and asked and got a table straight away, it was all very strange.
Iv always loved the Ned and felt comfortable but this was very weird
Excellent waiter and food. Music and dancers were excellent. Champagne a little expensive meal also a bit expensive. Overall excellent evening thanks
Had lunch with a friend yesterday. Great experience. Nice food and nice staff. Special thanks to our Spanish waiter. Knows what he is doing! Will come back soon.
Awesome, well worth a visit! Great atmosphere, fabulous food and cocktails
Been looking forward to returning to The Ned and it was well with the wait. Poached eggs were perfectly cooked and Cumberland sausages particularly good. Chose filter coffee as our second coffee, but that was very weak. However, when we informed the waiter it was quickly and happily replaced with a delicious brew. We will definitely be back!
