Meeting Rooms at The Ned

Housed in the former London HQ of Midland Bank, meeting rooms at The Ned are part of an ambitious hotel project. Converting this once derelict Lutyens-designed building is being masterminded by hospitality experts Soho House, in a joint venture with the Sydell Group.

It is Soho House’s most ambitious conversion yet. The Ned, which takes its name from the architect‘s nick name, Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens, is on a much larger scale than their other properties. The designers are not short of inspiration with vaults, mahogany panelling and other 1920/30s banking artefacts to inspire them.

Meeting Rooms at The Ned

Meeting Rooms at The Ned Reflect a Bygone era


The Tapestry Room
The focal points of this room are wood panelling and a tapestry dating back to the 1920s, which at the time was the largest of its kind.


The Saloon
The centre piece of The Saloon comes from London’s Devonshire House.  It is a splendid 18th century chandelier, complementing the Parquet flooring and ornate plaster work.


The Drawing Room
Inter-connecting with The Saloon, this room resembles a Library with book shelves, light painted panelled walls and 1920/30’s artwork.


The RWB Room
A snug named after the owner Ronald Wayne Burkle, with more wooden panelling, this time oak.


The Wren Room
An obvious name choice when considering the close proximity of St Paul’s. However it actually reflects that St Mildred’s Church previously stood here. Both were Sir Christopher Wren masterpieces.  Decor is traditional with plush carpets, a chandelier and wood panelling.


The Rose Room
Going back further in history to before the Great Fire, the Rose Tavern stood on the site. This room has a fine chandelier, waist height panelling and a carpet especially designed for the room.


We are currently unable to give capacities of meeting rooms at the Ned as they have yet to be confirmed.

Dining Options at The Ned

  1. The Penny – American cafe in the former Grand Banking Hall
  2. Millie’s Lounge – 24 hour US and UK cuisine
  3. Café Sou – French
  4. The Grill Room
  5. Cecconi’s – Italian
  6. Pen Yen – Japanese
  7. Zobler’s – New York-style Jewish deli.


To keep within planning and conversation regulations, the 252 bedrooms are a mix of large (up to 1884 sq ft) and small (215-323 sq ft) rooms.  202 of them fall into the small to medium category. This was a stumbling block for some of the large corporate hotel groups who looked to take on the property, as their brand guidelines demand bigger rooms. Strong styling with all mod cons, including rainforest showers, will no doubt make up for this.
