It was perfect for a Friday night with friends! There was live music and a good atmosphere, although slightly loud. We were catching up with a friend we hadn’t seem for a while and it was sometimes hard to communicate, but in the end we had a lovely evening.

The service was good but rather slow. My burger was dry but otherwise tasty. It was just hard to have a conversation due to the band noise.

Although I would recommend this place for its unique setting my food was cold when served, several pieces of egg shell found in poached eggs. Restaurant service was good but poor from the front of house- very unwelcoming.

I booked the table in my manager's name, when he arrived there was no record of the booking, he then made an order which was wrong when it arrived and then he had to go to the till to pay as no one was around to get the bill to the table.

Food (eggs Benedict was lukewarm)
Coffee lukewarm
Tables are very close to each other, couldn't have a conversation with my partner as we had loud business conversations going on from both sides of us, literally 20cm away from each ear.
The service was good, friendly and efficient.

The only downside was the music. Normally the music is relaxing and enjoyable but on Saturday it was more like heavy rock which was very loud and quite annoying. Was a big relief when they finally finished the set which went on much too long.

We didn't get offered anymore sandwiches until we were into the cakes. The staff took way too long to return to check on us. The noise of the band was so loud we could hardly hear each other speak. The Ned itself is a wonderful venue but the staff were obviously too busy!

Food and service excellent. Spoilt entirely by an unacceptable level of noise from live music. Dreadful. You could not have a conversation yet alone a relaxing meal. Apologies from the waiters was of no comfort. I felt sorry for them they were forced to field countless complaints from all areas of the restaurant all evening.

You must decide whether you are a noisy raucous pub or an excellent, gentle relaxing restaurant.. I for one will not return unless / until the decibel level returns to its pre rock levels.

There’s just something about the Ned which I really enjoy. Only ever been at the weekend (evenings) and so live music which is loud but always a good atmosphere- our waiter was lovely (no pressure and very good service). All different ages/types of people. Food at Millie’s Lounge was good and just enough. I will return.
