Vegan options this time were very disappointing and unimaginative. The vegan options on my previous visit were very good.

Great setting in the courtyard with heaters and covering. However, service needs some refinement to be more polite, and also the mixed nuts we ordered were stale (probably opened pre lockdown!). Otherwise a great spot.

Booked the Ham Yard ~bar~ and restaurant and put a note on the booking two months ago to say can I just have a bar seat outside please. I then arrived to be told we cannot just have a drink (the seating area was not full by any means). Anyway after much huffing and puffing they allowed us a seat for 45 minutes

In the first week when we were able to meet friends outside, Ham Yard was a very pleasant venue. It was unfortunately quite cold and the heaters could only do so much, but it was still very enjoyable.
The special menu was not available. The al a carte menu provided a good selection. The seared tuna with salsa verde was very well prepared. Service was very attentive. We had an enjoyed the meal and the ambience.

We had a great time celebrating a birthday. The outdoor area is very cosy and welcoming with the blankets, heaters and covers. The food was delicious as usual, amazing cocktails and a very friendly and efficient service from the staff. We all loved our lunch at the Ham Yard!

The team at Ham Yard had transformed the courtyard with lots of tables well spaces and a few catching the lunchtime sun.
The service could be faster but think everyone was just getting back up to speed and we were delighted to be eating out.

I was so excited to eat here but was very disappointed. Inside of restaurant was uncomfortably cold. We were initially sat by the door so we asked to move and was put under the air conditioning unit. I had the smoked salmon starter which was literally a large plate of smoked salmon and a bowl of burnt toast... for £19.50! The ox cheek was bland, no flavour what so ever and the sauce was like water. No waiters came to check if our food was ok or to see if we needed more drinks so our glasses were empty throughout our meal. Then desert, poached pears... or rather half a pear with a scoop of overpowering chocolate sorbet which took away the taste of everything else. Beautiful setting but very expensive for not good quality of food or service. Very disappointing!

We had a table in the Courtyard which was lovely and even though tables were quite close together we didn't hear other conversations. The heaters kept us lovely and warm and it was a lovely atmosphere and looked really nice. The food was beautiful and portion size good. Service on the whole was good although there were a few times we had to ask for the same thing multiple times before it got done and a, side order arrived after we had all finished our mains which was not so good. Overall was lovely would go back the food was delicious just need to be a little more on the ball with service.

Overall, we had a lovely evening - made special by the team who looked after us, moved us and made us as warm as possible. It feels like the terrace could be more Christmassy and blankets, etc provided. Felt a little stark. The food is good, but quite pricey for what it is. But overall, given the current circumstances, the evening was good and I would go again in the summer.

Great pre-lockdown dinner. One or two problems with getting the food out because it was so busy but the staff handled the issue really well. Food was very good and would thoroughly recommend the restaurant. I would like to try again in summer when we can sit outside.

Table for two in the bar seating but tucked into an enclosed courtyard space. Great ambience, service just right without being overbearing. Drinks delicious. Try the sancerre. Bar foods not overly complicated. We were offered a la carte but bar food was great.

I used to go to Ham Yard a lot before.
Managed to book a table at the bar area.
The food was average, because my friend ordered a risotto, which was overcooked and unseasoned.
My walnut salad was an average choice too.
Otherwise it was a nice experience.

Very average- Charing Mayfair prices in Soho. Not spectacular inside and attracts a rather loud drunk crowd which kills the ambiance.
