Excellent - loved it. The fish cake and cod were delicious and enjoyed a lovely glass of Prosecco. The waiter service was excellent and we were served quickly as we were off to the theatre.

We had a pre-dinner drink in the bar, loud and busy but enjoyable, we then ate in restaurant. We had the 2 course set menu with glass of fizz. Good price but slightly let down by the quality of the food. Starters very small, warm but dry and as hard as rock, pork and beans ok but bit boring and salmon on spinach, once again boring. One dessert was excellent but the chocolate banana filo was like eating pure chocolate spread, too sweet and too one dimensional. Shame. Having said all that, we had a lovely evening and would return but eat off of the full menu.

We chose the set lunch menu, which was good value as it included a glass of prosecco. Two main courses were only tepid. And the cheese, while not attracting a supplement, was mean. Just two small squares of admittedly delicious cheese. The waiter overheard us mention it was a birthday lunch and off his own bat brought a birthday cake.

Our third visit to The Ham Yard in six months. The service really is outstanding. Very attentive, without being over the top. Every member of staff we came into contact with was excellent.
The menus change regularly. Ambience is great and keeps a cosy feel and all in central London. Gem of a find.

This was our first visit to Ham Yard. The booking was at 9 30 on a wet and cold Friday evening, as we had a prior event, but at this time the restaurant was still extremely busy. We were surprised at the size of the restaurant, as it was far larger than we expected , however the service was fine considering how many people were eating at once. If you are looking for a lively eating experience in a stylish environment then this will suit you well.

We were seated in a quieter corner of the restaurant, away from the noisy bar area, and the service was friendly and efficient. Vegetarian choices were limited but the food was very tasty. The wine list was interesting and reasonably priced for central London.

The decor and ambiance is wonderfully eclectic and energizing; makes you feel part of the liveliest society in town. Service was friendly and fast; the waiter was very helpful in choosing wine, even allowing my guest to taste first before committing to a bottle. The starters were flavorful but the coq au vin was a little bland and dry. However, all was redeemed by the exceptional chocolate dessert! I strongly recommend the venue for the experience, and make sure you visit the bathroom after the meal to wash your hands and moisturise with the best smelling hand soap and lotion in London.

Unfortunately there was work going on in the kitchen the day we dined (for lunch), however, this was explained to us on our arrival and with only minimal noise it did not intrude for very long. The staff were excellent and this added to the enjoyable experience of Ham Yard Bar and Restaurant.
Food was very good indeed especially for the set menu. Would highly recommend.
Great location too.

An absolutely fantastic 50th birthday party. The incredible and huge chocolate ganache cake served all our needs (gluten free and vegan!), and even brought a tear to the birthday girl's eye!! Can't wait to be back at the buzzing Ham Yard Restaurant another time soon.

Fantastic service from the time we arrived. We were greeted with a smile, our coats taken to the cloakroom and seated at our table promptly. All the staff were fantastic ! Our waiter was so attentive and not too pushy or disruptive. Food was amazing, lovely presented, great value and very delicious! Decor is beautiful and is set in delightful surroundings. The staff are outstanding! Definitely would recommend!

Lovely place, great staff. Had pre-theatre meal which was very reasonably priced. However selection of food was not exciting, and the Soup of the day & pork main meal lacked much flavour, but both were incredibly salty! My partner had the salmon mains which, whilst pleasant, lacked flavour. I personally would go somewhere else next time based on this experience.

After a slow start of being attended to (taking a drinks order & initial greeting by a waiter) things moved along smoothly.
An apology by way of a complimentary glass of sparkling wine was generously offered. Our Romanian waiter was very attentive- he overheard us saying it was the birthday of one of our party and brought out a little surprise cake with a candle and decorated plate! How lovely! Food was very tasty and beautifully presented.
Hotel interior is unusual with lots of quirky pieces & toilets are clean & smart.

We had the set menu, which had some delicious meals on it, but when we asked to see the a la carte, the waiter found it difficult to comprehend. There was no Vegan option on the set menu - or on the desserts menu. The surroundings were comfortable, although the chairs were rather low for the height of the table and we had to ask for a cushion. We did not realise we had to pay for water until it was listed on the bill. We had to wait for an anxious length of time for our coats to be found at the end. We were not hurried through our meal and enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere throughout.

Service was appalling. Had to ask for menus and then wine menu. Sides didn't come out at same time as mains so main plates taken away. Salmon was cold.
Desert plates not cleared away after tea was delivered to table.
Marked as a BIRTHDAY meal but not recognised by the restaurant.

Not impressed!
