All in all very underwhelming. The menu was nothing special but at least what we ordered tasted nice. Our first waiter was Very chatty and gave us way too much personal info. Luckily his shift was finishing and we had a much more professional waiter.
Also we were sat outside and had a very rowdy table near us.
We had 1 starter, 2 mains and a side, no alcohol, and it all came to over £70.
Won't be dining here again.

Firstly, I would like to thank Ham Yard for being so accommodating. We were due to eat on the terrace, but the weather was awful. We were given a lovely secluded table.

The service was superb, and we had a very attentive waiter who exceptional.

The food was delicious!

The restaurant is classy, and the ambience is lovely.

I thoroughly recommend eating here.

The hotel is amazing and usually very good service. This time around we had to wait a bit longer for food and the menu was less exciting but will recommend for the atmosphere

Very disappointed with the food. I order the seared tuna and I received the smallest tuna steak, with some salsa verde on the side and a very small pile of watercress (no dressing).. £22! Wow.. very expensive for very little. The side salad of tomatoes with basil was equally basic. Far below the standards I was expecting.

Lovely location but I won't be returning.

Location is great - space inside and outside is very nice and pleasant
Service is attentive and the right level of formal/informal
Menu is limited and quality was average
Wine list could easily be improved
Given the average food quality and limited choice, it is a very pricey option
I would recommend the place for the decor and the location - surely not for the food

I want to write about the staff who were waiting the outside seating area yesterday afternoon (12th June) - they were exemplary. When one of our party temporarily felt unwell they could not have been more helpful and accommodating and once she recovered they were more focussed on making sure that we were still enjoying our afternoon than any fuss we could have caused. They never made us feel like we were causing a problem and everyone was so kind and sympathetic. Thank you very much; we had a wonderful afternoon and would not hesitate to come back.

The location and outdoors are lovely. But the food was below average. Quite shocking really when we paid almost 400£ for 4 people. The steak tartare was dry and lacked taste, the mains were burned and were nothing special. The only saving grace was the location and the cocktails at 14£ a pop. Cancelling my future reservation in July. Utter waste of money.

I was meeting a friend I had not seen for over a year and this was our last meeting place. It was lovely to be back at such a charming hotel. The food was delicious as was the cocktail and champagne. The waiter was charming and attentive. All the staff are very friendly. Will visit again soon hopefully to stay overnight.

It was perfect for a spontaneous city lunch, lovely to sit outside and not be bothered by traffic.
If I had a criticism then maybe the tables were a tiny bit too close together but maybe I’m just being hyper COVID sensitive.
I would go back and I have already recommended it.

Rude waiter, but the food was amazing as always.

Luckily the restaurant recognised the poor service and swapped our waiter for someone else who was fantastic.
