A very very good experience right from the moment we entered the restaurant
Smiling faces , great attention to detail , high quality good sized portions of interesting menu items
Plenty of rapport with interesting and interested staff and a great chat with Marek the Maitre D who seems to run this large room effortlessly
The owners should be very proud of what they have here

We were rushed due to tube difficulties and had a play to catch but they were able to keep our reservation and get us in and out in a timely manner.

We often go to the Hamyard for a pre- theatre meal, and it never disappoints. The atmosphere is buzzing, the staff are amazing and the food is delish.
Great place to hang out as well, cannot recommend it highly enough.

A lovely and lively venue... no Prosecco at the bar just Cava or Champagne... such a problem!! The dinner service was a little slow in places and sometimes we had to ask 3 times for an item but we weren't on a hurry but something to be aware of... I'd definitely give them another chance and go back... very nice dessert wine!

The set menu is great value. We were in a rush pre-theatre and the restaurant was very accommodating and served all courses at the same time, which ensured we made it to the show on time!

So let's start with the good, Staff 5 stars, an absolute pleasure to have them serve me, give them all a raise immediately. The ambience, 5 stars, this place is seriously classy but not so pretentious you feel uncomfortable. The desserts, yummy, my orange blossom cake was delightful, a smooth orange flavour with some of the tastiest and suprisingly creamy sorbet I've had outside of Italy. The chocolate ganache with cranberries was a serious chocolate explosion, wow it packed a chocolatey punch, again accompanied by some seriously smooth and deliscious sorbet. Now the not so good. For a place this fancy I was expecting more, more flavour, more ingenuity, more wow factor and more heat - both my dishes were bordering on cold. My cullen skink soup arrived with all the fanfare of a high end restaurant, but sadly the flavours were bland, the consistency a little thick, the potatoes tasting a little powdery. The coated quail egg in it however was deliscious, crunchy with a creamy egg centre. The pan fried fillet of stone bass didn't fare much better, the fish although cooked to perfection was accompanied by an uninspiring buttery sauce that swamped any apple flavour the menu claimed it to have.
Overall I would come here again, the set menu was excellent value for money in such a lovely setting, but maybe just for drinks and dessert.

Appreciate the fact that there is no loud music so you can have a proper conversation, increasingly rare in London. Set lunch excellent value, service friendly and professional.

Very delicious set lunch, tried the Skint Cullen soup with a Qual egg, have never had this before and it was piping hot, served really well and was so tasty.
Following by the Chicken, which as was tender and full of flavour, with the added anchovy.
Had been to Ham Yard for drinks and was quite surprised by how good the lunch was, 2 courses with a glass of Fizz for £19.50. Just what we needed on a wintery day to warm us up.

We visited Ham Yard restaurant on Saturday for pre theatre. It was our first visit.
From the moment we walked in we lived the ambience of the place. The staff were very attentive and we had a lovely corner table.

We both went off the set menu which included a glass of Prosecco and was very good value £25 for 3 courses.

I had chicken escalope and my husband had sea bass for main course, but all our courses were delicious. Will definitely be visiting again.

Went with friends for dinner on Saturday to celebrate my birthday and we had the 3 course set menu with Prosecco. The food was delicious and we all chose the pistachio tiramisu for dessert which was amazing. Service was very attentive and the restaurant surprised me with a mini cake with candle. This was our first visit and we will definitely be visiting again.

Valentines dinner at Ham Yard was a lovely experience. Tables discreetly positioned apart for privacy. Great set menu for the evening. Started with pink champagne - a lovely touch. Starter of scallops and celeriac cream was divine. My beef wellington was excellently cooked and delicious to taste. The place was busy but service was still attentive. Well done and thank you!

On the surface this looked like a great restaurant, the menu looked good, the pictures of the restaurant itself looked really nice and of course the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. But that wasn't quite the experience I had.

It wasn't terrible, the service was good, maybe even very good, the overall look, including the court yard on the approach was nice. But the food was straight out of the 80's. Again not terrible, but dated and really quite poor.

For starter we had the mackerel, which was the highlight of the meal, and the chicken terrine, which had almost no flavour at all and was served with a thin piece of very crisp bread (both a little stale and over toasted). For main we had the seabass and the dover sole. The seabass was ok (just), although it was an error to have it with beurre blanc. The dover sole was awful. Again zero flavour and is just presented on it's own on a plate. We had sides of truffle chips (ok), and tomato and basil salad, which was just a bowl of tomatoes in oil. The side salad that came with the dover sole was so over dressed it was overpowering and quite soggy. The Meunière sauce was also terrible, just a bowl of oil.

Perhaps we made terrible choices, but I couldn't recommend going here. Far from the worst dining experience, but very disappointing.

I've been back to Ham Yard a few times, and never had a bad experience there. The food is excellent, the service is courteous, attentive, and efficient - and I'd recommend that you make use of the sommelier; she's a treasure! And what's great for a central London restaurant is that you're not squeezed into a confined space, cheek-by-jowl with other diners; this restaurant feels spacious.
