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.

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.

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.

Quality of food incredible and service was not rushed and very thoughtful.
Highly recommend staying at the Ned as it caters for every whim.

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.

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

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!
