The steak is absolutely incredible. Some of the small plates needed a bit of work but to be honest I would come back and just order steak for starter, main and dessert!!! 😍

We absolutely love this place,even though we are above to target audience age.
Reminds us of great bars in London and America.
Worthing is fortunate to have so a hip bar

Amazing find for brunch in Worthing, food was perfect and great value and selection for bottomless cocktails. Our waitress was so lovely and we had such a great time!

A warm welcome and good food and drink. Quite a wait for the food, sticky table and the music was too loud, could not hold a conversation with my friend very easily.

I went to Macmillans some 15 years ago and it was absolutely nothing like this. The second time I've been in 5 days, the food is great, the decor is classy and the service very good. If I was to recommend anything it has to be the Steak, without a doubt the best I have had full stop.

Highly recommend and I will be returning too.

The t-bone steak we shared was delicious. Staff were fantastic, really polite, helpful and clearly explained everything. Struggled a bit hearing due to the volume of music and voices of other diners, but a wonderful evening.

MacMillans is a really cool bar/restaurant, the cocktails were superbly done and the food was excellent. Service was very good as well and the only slight downside for me was that it's an expensive place to eat. Much more than we had anticipated but on the flip side, we were stuffed when we left and the food was excellent.

A little jewel nestled near to the Connaught cinema, a perfect venue for a late supper or cocktails.

If you wish to eat a good steak in Worthing this is the place , not cheap but the
quality is very good , definitely a case of “you get what you pay for” .

Not quite so on the Hamburger which one of our party had , there used to be
the choice of a double patty on these which made them substantial , not so now
just the one single patty and for the price charged not good value at all .

Lovely food and great service however there is quite a difference between the menu online and the menu in the restaurant, lots of different drinks and food choices which we were told is due to the menu changing frequently but there was also quite a difference in price.

We ate outside - only complaint was the buttock numbing narrow benches. Our main server/host was brilliant, friendly, informative - sold us on the bottomless cocktails dealt with my mother in law who is 88 with tact and patience. Food sublime, drinks great. We soon forgot about our numb bums.. Recommend the tacos - but the kids say the burgers were fab too

It was nice, but sadly not exceptional.
The small plates appear to be the way to go, as feel the steak is overpriced and very limited on the choice of sides available.

Very uncomfy seats. Very dark, and had to send back my food unfortunately. LOTS of people constantly brushing past us , during Covid this didn’t make us feel most comfortable. This was our first time there and wouldn’t return.

Staff were friendly, when we could get hold of them. Waited one hour for starters! Had to ask for side plates to share them.Brought our main course before clearing the table. Would have liked dinner plates to put my steak and sides on instead of eating off several different dishes. Were not offered any condiments to go with our chips, nor mustard for our steaks. Waitress accidentally knocked over my glass of wine and didn't even offer a refill. Overall nice food, very pricey. Can't see how they can justify £34 for a fillet steak! Lots of improvement needed before I would consider coming back
