All red leather and wood panelling – this plush steakhouse is the centrepiece dining option at the Ned: Soho House’s vast transformation of the former Midland Bank HQ in the heart of the City. It’s the sort of place where plutocrats meet to carve up international corporations over lunch while waiters carve beef Wellington from the trolley. The steaks, both British and imported, are top quality.

“A great setting for high-powered, top-quality steak”“the old bank manager’s office” of the former Midland Bank HQ, bang in the middle of the City, has been transformed seamlessly by Soho House into a wood-panelled grill, with such old-world touches as beef Wellington from the trolley at lunch. Initially reserved for the club’s members but now open to all-comers, it retains its clubby atmosphere and is (perhaps reassuringly) “very expensive, but worth going, even if just to marvel at the building”. A “fun brunch” is a secondary attraction.

“Quieter than the other restaurants in the building” – The Ned’s steakhouse is to be found at the edge of the ground floor of the old Midland Bank HQ. Originally members-only, it’s been open to all since February 2018, and its “elegant” panelled interior makes it a “perfect location for a business lunch”. Most of the well-realised menu is devoted to steaks – mostly from the UK, but also with a selection from the US – and (as well as a few fish and seafood choices) there’s also the option of Beef Wellington carved at the table.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
