Eat and Drink at The Ned
If you're looking for something special..
Are you looking for a sophisticated, beautiful and ‘in’ place to go in London for food and drink? Then you’re in for a treat.
The Ned is one of my favourite places in London, it is the perfect place for a coffee or pot of tea (sorry Starbucks), for a glass of wine, beer or cocktail depending on the occasion, brunch, lunch, breakfast, dinner, and don’t get me started on their Sunday roasts! It quite literally serves every purpose, and what makes it stand out from the crowd is the beautiful interiors inside and out.
As soon as you walk in the sheer grandeur and luxury hits you, it is one very large room with a grandstand in the middle where they play jazz music with 9 restaurants lined around the edges. Each one serving different cuisine so everybody is catered for. You have to book for the restaurants but you can also just walk in and you’ll be directed to the Nickle Bar at the back where you’re encouraged to take a seat (if it’s not too busy) and order drinks and nibbles. Or simply stand at the bar or have a wander around, it’s big enough to walk around and provides little nooks where you can stand with your drink and people watch.
I’ve eaten at The Ned a few times, with Millies being my go-to. The food is exceptional and the services are paralleled. It is quite pricey but if you’re going for a special occasion is ticks every box and you won’t be disappointed.
If you want to make it an all-round experience you can stay at The Ned too as it’s predominately a hotel. I haven’t stayed there myself but I can only imagine how stunning the rooms are. I have however seen the toilets, and despite that sounding a little obscure… if you know you know. You’ll be taking one or two bathroom selfies that’s for sure! (Not to mention using the gorgeous Cowshed products).
If you’re heading to London for Christmas you MUST pay a visit then to see the tree and decorations, you’ll come out feeling more festive then you’ve ever felt before. I haven't got many photos but it means you can get a small taster of what's to come, and the rest you can wait and see for yourself!
