We had a delightful brunch - not rushed at all. Good value. Live music from the bandstand in the centre. Would definitely recommend.

Millie’s is a wonderful place to have dinner. Food is fantastic and service attentive.

Only slight downside is that it is noisy and anyone hard of hearing will struggle.

Very unimpressed with the service. Had to fight to get the offer booked via opentable honoured. The replenished sandwiches took 30 mins to arrive and when arrived, were terribly presented and using stale bread!!

Furthermore, they were lots of people from the bar just leaning on our table.

The Ned is amazing, the decor is beautiful and I always feel like I’m in New York in the incredible 24/7 ambience of fun & class. However the staff did remind us 4 times we only had our table for two hours, which is annoying when you pay a lot of money and want to relax. Also the food at Millie’s is average. The best bit about coming here is the atmosphere!

Service was fair, ambience was also ok. The food was below average - the turkey was dry. Decent wine list but at £115/person definitely not value for money. The end of our visit was made unpleasant by rude and poorly-trained floor personnel. At 7.05pm I was asked to vacate a 4-seater in the eating area because of another booking at 7pm. I was reminded again at 7.06pm. This is unacceptable. If you have a booking at 7pm you must inform me at 6.45pm that I have 15 minutes to vacate the table. Poor customer experience. I shall not be returning. I shall not be recommending this place to anyone either

Slow service - we asked the waiter to come back in two minutes for the order. We had to chase them again after fifteen minutes.

The food and drinks were fantastic.
The only downside was the service, the waitress we had on our table was quite pushy and tried to speed us along through the meal.

After our mains, we decided to go outside and get some fresh air. We let the waitress know and she consisted to tell us we needed to order desserts and we wouldn't have the table for much longer. Baring in mind we had only been there for 45 minutes, ordered two mains and bottle of wine and we' re planning on staying for drinks afterwards. I then told her the table next to us had been there before we even got there, and she replied in saying it was a table of four, so they can stay longer.

I felt her approach come across pushy and lacked high level of service, just because we are table of 2 doesn't mean the level of service should be any different. we still spent over 120 pounds.

I've been to the ned many times, and I've always had a great level of service. It was a dissipating experience and it was bit rubbish to feel less important and rushed out of their.

Mediocre food at City prices, but great atmosphere especially with the live music. Its a good location right next to Bank tube so easy to get to. There's a choice of bars / eats, so a bit of variety on offer. We got moved on from our table each time, either for next guests or Ned members, so didn't feel that valued having spent over £150.

Food and service was great however the place is too loud with people standing right next to you at the bar plus live music (which was nice) we could hardly hear each other. I actually had to move my chair closer to where my partner was sitting to have a decent conversation.

The waiting staff at Millies were very friendly and service was good in general. One thing I do have to say is that I ordered a bottle of prosecco in advance to be brought to the table but instead of leaving this in an ice bucket on our table, they served it straight away with our afternoon tea. Not so impressed with the afternoon tea contents after being here before when it seemed much nicer.
We also went to the bar after vacating our table and found the bar staff were arrogant and not customer friendly.
Such a shame as I love the ambience and overall love the open plan design

The only positive thing about our dinner at Millie’s was the atmosphere and the free warm sourdough bread! We had the endive salad that was boring with endless leaves, chips that were soggy and lukewarm, cauliflower cheese that lacked flavour, and the chopped salad that left me hungry. We ended the meal with their pavlova which was the worst pavlova I’ve ever had. It was crispy and not chewy and topped with creme fraiche. Why ruin a classic and just put on some freshly whipped cream?! Finally check your bill at the end of the night. They “accidentally“ added a cheese platter and sorbet (that we didn’t order) to our bill.

The front of house staff are really not very welcoming. They would not let my elderly guest sit at our table just 15 minute before our booking even though there was plenty of space. I am a vegetarian, and there is really limited choice which is disappointing.

We had a fantastic meal at Millie's Lounge. The chocolate board sharing dessert is one of the best desserts I have ever had (and that is high praise as dessert is my favourite part of any meal). I am a huge chocolate fan and this is a dream for chocolate lovers!

Had shepherds pie. So dry it was not good. No egg with our steak ,we had to ask TWICE for it. Mine came up later as they dropped mine on some poor unsuspecting guy. Very dark in there so couldnt really see what we was eating. Chips were dry. Rice and Kale was stone cold.

Overall food experience was below average. We ordered scallops for starter and burger for main. The starter was £17 and it came with 3 scallops only. Taste was nothing amazing, just normal. Burger was a dissapointment. It did not feel fresh and the taste overall was below average. The atmosphere, the live music and location of Millie's Lounge in the Ned is amazing. I wouldn't go back to Millie's for food, but would go back for drinks at their bar.

First table given was on top of bar which was 5 deep, asked for a move and another table was offered.
My starter was okay but main roast chicken was v poor. 6 hard roast potatoes and 2 large slabs of meat. No stuffing or veg. Very sad plate.
Staff were excellent and only paid service charge due to staff as food v poor.
Bands were excellentl.
