The venue definitely made you feel like you had travelled back in time, in a really good way. Loved the atmosphere with live music being played, the food and drinks were excellent. Wish I could have stayed longer. Will return

In this “new normal” world I was impressed by the measures in place. The food was excellent as was the service. The music was a little loud but maybe that was just me. Been there 3 times & would definitively go again.

Food was very good, staff initiated good conversation, good sense of humour, overall lovely experience. The only downside was the volume of the live music. When eating I would prefer a slightly more quiet experience, as at some points it was hard to communicate with my guest. But overall a lovely experience 👍🏼

Every time I go to Millies I am always let down by the standard of food. The chips were overcooked and hard. It is not the same standard as Kaia and cecconis.

Fabulous location for any occasion. We went for my friend's birthday and the ambiance was perfect. Beautiful music was played by singer and pianist in the centre of the hotel.

We had the lobster which was delicious - would highly reccomend this dish.

Service from the waiters was excellent- nothing bad to say to be honest. Will be back!

My colleague and I ordered the chicken, but we had to send hers back as it wasn't cooked through. It was dealt with quickly but my poor colleague had to sit with nothing to eat and just watch us eat whilst a new chicken was cooked. She then ate on her own as we'd finished by the time the freshly cooked chicken arrived. Spoilt our team lunch out somewhat. Hopefully a one off and I would give the benefit of the doubt and return one day.

The lady that served us came across as if she couldnt be bothered. Forgot our butter for toast, fruit salad and water.
She then disappeared and we were left looking for someone to take our payment.
We was told that she had gone on her break?!?
We have been to the ned a number of times but this was a paticually poor experience.
We left wondering if we will return again.

The food came out really quick which was great! The curry was delicious however the rice was very hard and undercooked.

Service was very slow, meaning I waiting 45 minutes to get a cocktail. Maybe the bar was short staffed?

Overall it was a lovely experience, I was just annoyed about the slow service.

The food and scene was amazing! However the service itself was slow, and had to ask to have Prosecco topped up a few times. Was rushed when they wanted the table but would be slow when we need them to be quicker.

Great food and atmosphere. Service a bit slow. Someone bought the afternoon over and said someone will be over to talk us through it, but no one came over, which is totally minor and it would not stop us from going again! Recommend the champagne!

Attended Millie’s Lounge at the Ned on Saturday 5th September 2020. The service was a little slow initially, but generally good and staff were extremely friendly. Opted for Fish and Chips as a main and I am so glad that I did as it was excellent.
