This was the worst experience ever. I had been walking all over London and arrived tired and early for my reservation at Millie’s lounge. They refused to seat me told me I could wait and they would be happy to cancel my reservation. Treated me like they didn’t want me there. A nice man took me over to Cecconi’s. I sat at the bar rather than wait for a table. Clearly they thought I was a street person wandering in to dine and dash. They held my credit card before I even ordered and did not give it back until I left. I am an older single lady. It is hard enough to dine alone in a strange country, much less be treat like this. I ate quickly, mediocre food and left as quickly as possible. 👎👎👎
Following a very successful finance meeting, Eileen and I decided to celebrate with an afternoon tea in The Ned, which she had been in before. There were two muscians playing classic modern songs. We sat at the bar and our attentive barman guided us through the special menu . We were able to benefit from this as we arrived in the two hour (3-5pm) happy hour period. For £16 plus service each we could select a drink from the cocktail, beers and wine menu for one drink and two items of food. We expected the food to be in minute quantities, but it was served in full dinner propotions. Particularly good were the fried zucchini, buffalo mozerella and the mushroom arancini, and the aubergine parmigiana was quite good too. We decided on wine and were given tasters of both red and white. All were good and a glass of each cour was sufficient for the afternoon repast. Neither of us wanted dinner afterwards!
I had a difficulty with my booking of a room at The Ned which was not of their making. Nicole on reception dealt with it in a professional and polite manner and completely took the stress out of the situation and resolved the matter allowing me to get on with important business. The hotel is a delight , food great and atmosphere wonderful. Top marks
