Poor quality Vs price.
However I would not go again because it's so noisy that I could not hear well what my friends were saying. That was really frustrating.

Good food and prompt service. Not brilliant value for money but perfectly reasonable. The ease of getting jug tap water made it good. Friendly staff. The lounge seating is better suited to a longer more relaxed meal, rather than a swift in and out meal which we were after that day.

Having made a reservation for breakfast at 7:30, I arrived and was shown to the table.
My guest arrived and advised that he would be joining my booking, only to be told there was no booking inder that name and that they “couldn’t possibly accommodate” him. Please remember how early this was - about 5 tables were taken!
Food is good, scrambled egg portion is ridiculously small, but quality is good.

While the service at Millie's lounge was good, the afternoon tea was overall a bit underwhelming. I presume sandwiches are made at the start of the day as they were hard and dry at the time of our 3pm sitting. Scones and cakes weren't the best either. It won't stop me, however, from going to The Ned as it has a lovely atmosphere.

The service was excellent. Food came out way too fast and made one feel hurried to eat, a five minute break between courses is usually nice. Too noisy due to the bar not being separate at all from eating area. As I have selected that I am going for anniversary we expected an anniversary dessert of some sort, or any acknowledgement.. which there was not. Also, did not enjoy sharing a sofa with someone else, very uncomfortable to sit and eat.

After several previous visits this one was a disappointment. The service was hit and miss even at non-busy times and some of the vegetables had to be sent back because they were cold. Not the slightest attempt at apology from the waiter. A long wait to get the bill and a long wait to pay it.

Not as swish as I was expecting, but had a lovely time regardless. We had hoped for the Sunday feast, but this wasn't running in the festive period, and they don't offer Afternoon Tea on Sunday either. As a result, the menu was a little underwhelming, the staff were lovely. The bill came to around £65 each - 1 course, 1 cocktail, 1 coffee each, and a bottle of wine between 3. Would poss go back to try the Sunday lunch, or afternoon tea. Was a good experience though and a beautiful building, am glad we tried it.

Great ambience while the live music is playing, however during band breaks background music is very quiet and atmosphere turns a little dull.
Food is of average quality but due to the fairly reasonable price for such a grand venue that wasn’t surprising.
Our table service however was incredibly poor for a venue of this level, especially as we were there during a quieter period.
All in all a nice night out in a nice venue but nothing incredible.

Didn’t like having to hand my card over to the barman to keep wile we were there. The sandwiches were stale they had to go back and some more brought out, we asked for a couple of plain ham ones but they said they didn’t do it, expensive sandwich and cake that just weren’t nice, loved the Ned itself just wouldn’t have afternoon tea there again.

Personally, I found Millie’s rather average. The service is very slow, the menu is a distinctly British menu which is fine but I wouldn’t say they did anything superb with any of the classics. If anything, they are a little on the mean side when it comes to portions so food that should be considered “hearty” ends up being a posh imitation with no added flair.

£45 for a bottle of mediocre Prosecco with service on top is out of control. Serving it luke warm and the waiter telling us that it’s because the cellar manager chills it to room temperature to “preserve” it is just bizarre.

Anyway, I have been to the other restaurants in the Ned many times before and found no fault but I won’t be going back to this one again.

The Ned is an amazing venue but this restaurant was distinctly average and the menu even more so.

I love The Ned - the service and food is always impeccable and so it was our first choice for an informal baby shower we were throwing for one of my friends. We were looked after beautifully on the day and given we don’t drink or eat meat, the team were brilliant at organising alternatives for us all including the Mother-To-Be who obviously can’t eat everything that she would normally be able to do. My only gripe with a small ‘g’ was that the desserts weren’t as great as they normally are. It’s natural that you would alter the menu/type of cakes given it was Christmas but it meant that the cakes weren’t to the usual standard. A small but important point. I don’t really want to eat mince pies and reindeer cookies at what should be an afternoon tea. Somethings shouldn’t change despite what time of the year it is or at least to that extent :)

We booked the afternoon tea for 2 since it was our anniversary, let me start by saying that the food was good indeed, the service on the other hand needs more work. I was very upset about the fact that my request for a note with a message to be added to my girlfriend’s side before we were sat down but this was forgotten. Upon leaving I checked with the hostess about this and was shown on their system that the request was there buuut they forgot, they did want to offer us a drink as an apology but that kind of defeats the purpose of an anniversary doesn’t it?
Overall the atmosphere was good, live music was good, slightly noisy for my taste tough. We would return but not on a special occasion since these “small” details seem to get lost in translation.

Had a voucher which I was told after the meal was not valid in December. Nowhere on the voucher does it say it is not valid in December. Pretty disappointed as I performed at The Ned that evening, but instead of being paid we were given vouchers. So to put these terms on the payment leaves a bad taste. The money is going straight back into your business anyway. Feels like a cheeky way to just not pay for your entertainment. Wouldn’t do it again.

Nice place with a buzzy atmosphere. Very busy and the seating is really odd should you happen to be a couple, you may end up being seated on a low sofa with a low arm chair around a tiny table. It doesn't feel comfortable eating food so low down. Food average, not really worth the price tag. But, can see why people like it as it's got a nice vibe.
