Had a lovely time at Millie's Lounge, it was the second time I have been for afternoon tea and it honestly is such a nice experience. The service is excellent and they catered to all our dietary requirements.
The hotel is beautiful and it makes the overall experience very enjoyable.
I look forward to our next visit,
Thank you very much.

Great for any occasion
The setting makes it worth a visit. An historic banking hall, tastefully converted into several bar areas and restaurants.
Food selection was somewhat limiting and a bit pricey.
However this was more than made up by the live entertainment.
This was a top end wedding band, playing a good mixture of well know tunes past and present. Not too noisy, really classy.

Ordered food at 8.30 and came out within 5 minutes. Clearly pre made and just heated. The chicken in the curry we ordered was over cooked and the dish came with about three mouthfuls of rice. The waiter came over multiple times to clear away our plates even though it was obvious we were still eating. They took forever to bring over our drinks and 5 minutes after receiving them we were told we had to leave (at9.45pm) as the place was closing at 10pm. Didn’t even finish. Not the Ned I’m used to. Won’t be going back anytime soon!

I asked for tablecloth and received an email that this special request would be complied with but of course, when we got there, there was no cloth. Not very happy.

The IPA is not real British IPA and hand pumped, but the waiter did not know the difference and mis-advised me.

We ordered the seafood platter, whilst I appreciate the need to keep fish fresh - it tasted like it had been kept on the ice for too long. I really enjoyed everything else, the platter was just a bit disappointing.

We found some of the staff quite rude. Service was slow, particularly to order. Food was ok. Forgot our drinks order, but whatever, main issue was staff communication, attitude and service quality, not at all what I expect from such an establishment. What I did notice was that for people they knew the serving was engaging, but for most other punters like us, they were just officious and as I say rude.

Won’t be hurrying back.

Great food! Small cakes were amazing. Only reason it's not 5 out of 5, is that we had to remind the waiter a couple of times to fill up the teapot, and again to provide the champagne we had asked for!

Went here for breakfast
They took hardly any precautions for COVID-19.
Were not told to use hand gel on entering.
Tables given a cursory wipe. I saw one table given a wipe but crumbs still remaining.
Salt and pepper mills weren’t wiped between customers.
Food was mediocre. Had eggs Florentine. Hollandaise had no tartness which given it should contain lemon was bland. Spinach not seasoned at all.
Also, on the menu is the full English with option of half. We watched table after table ordering full English and then leaving half. So much waste when waiters could explain the options and discourage waste.
Wouldn’t recommend this place.
