Perfect for outdoor dining. Great ambience, service and food. Suitable for the eventful British weather due to courtyard location and good protection.
Food was below par. Steak was overcooked, under seasoned and dry.
Service was non existent other than when I was walked to my table (after waiting 10 mins to be seated and escorted over) and on my order. Not once was I asked how my meal was.
Waitress kept unnecessarily filling up my wine glass when I had barely had a mouthful.
Miserable waitress also.
Not impressed at all.
Had such an amazing lunch. But do think it is a little over priced as one dish and a cocktail cost £45
Lovely setting for a lunch time meal, great staff if not a little pricey
Food was excellent and service first class. Only criticism would be the white wine which wasn’t as cold as I would have liked.
Beautifully managed at a challenging time. Thoughtfully looked after by the staff, ambiance and food was everything we could want as we’re starting to eat out in these COVID times.
Great outdoor venue for food and drinks in these weird times. Good service, covered and heaters provided. Good location for lack of passers by.
Superb lunch. Excellant food and service. Thank you.
Great food and wonderful service
Really good food and cosy, despite the fact that we were on the terrace on a chilly day. Highly recommended.
I had my birthday lunch here and it was just fantastic! Great food, service, ambience. Covid safe. We then went to a ticketed event upstairs to the roof garden which was also fabulous. Such a great day. Thanks for helping me celebrate and for my gorgeous birthday desert board. We’ll be back!
Great place for a work meal rain or shine with impeccable service. Even with the rain and cold weather eating outside was fine. They have canopies and heaters. Looking forward to visiting again in sunnier weather.
As always a great time was had. Food excellent, staff on point.
Well appointed for current outside dining restrictions - despite it being grey and damp we weren’t cold. Food and service here perfect as all Firmdale Hotels are!
A fantastic place to eat al fresco in central london. Covered tables, heaters, blankets and lovely service. Not cheap, but you are paying for the service and the location. We really enjoyed the food, but the menu is limited!
The food and service was perfect - a great first meal out of lockdown!
Fantastic setting in the quiet courtyard , heaters to ensure we don’t get cold, service was impeccable and food delicious.
Fabulous place for our first meal out in over a year!
Good food, nice menu.
Cocktails were mixed - some food, some just okay.
Staff were good and ambience was nice.
Heaters were welcome and seemed like one of the nicer places to eat in central London on a relatively cold, Monday night.
Good food, wine and cocktails in a very pleasant environment.
Lots of outside tables with quite a few heaters. Nice menu.
I normally love this place but my experience this time around was a little lacklustre. We were dining outside (as there’s no indoor dining for a few weeks) and we got a super dud table. The heating set up was to have heaters between tables, so if a table was in the main seating area, it would benefit from multiple heaters. Our table was at the end and we only had one heater. Even with 2 coats, scarf and 2 blankets (kindly provided by the staff), it was still cold, making for a very uncomfortable dining experience. The food was the standard menu Ham Yard having been using for years. Would be great to see a change up in menu and am definitely not dining outside there again until it’s warmer!
Fabulous being out again and nice that the restaurant had heaters and rugs but sadly the service was very slow, I think they need another one or two staff to service the tables.
Service and safety considerations amazing. Food great and lovely places tucked away. Thank you again to the staff for making it such a lovely experience
Ham Yard have done a great job making the outside terrace feel like you are in a first-class restaurant. The service was smooth and attentive - and when one of the orders was incorrect - it was replaced immediately without fuss or charge. Good food and good wine and s great venue for my wife’s birthday and first family dinner out of lockdown
Nice ambience and location to share a meal. The food was fine. The service was a little slow (eg we would all have ordered dessert but it took so long that we gave up).
Greeted by an extremely bossy woman who treated us as though we were dirt. Told what to do and when to do it like we were naughty children. At the end of the night another waiter informed us they were closing by saying ‘you need to leave and that means now’. No value or gratitude for our custom.
Our visit was fabulous. A beautiful setting, effectively run by a friendly and competent team. The heaters and optional blankets work really well. The food was excellent as always - a real treat and a perfect way to spend an evening.
I was really excited to go to Ham Yard, their outside area just looks so cute. Indeed, the the ambiance was ok (although some music would have helped) and service was good (heating lamps kept us warm), but unfortunately the food was not worth the price and the cocktails almost felt like they were watered-down. I personally feel that if you are going to charge such money, then it needs to be worth it, otherwise even that cutest courtyard will leave people disappointed.
Ham Yard is a beautiful venue at any time but especially for lunch on the outside terrace during this time of the easing Covid restrictions. They are well equipped to deal with this, have heaters, and tables are appropriately spaced.
The menu and wine list were somewhat less than usual but still had a good selection of dishes to cater for most tastes. As usual, all the dishes were delicious and we couldn't fault the food or the service. The Firmdale Group of hotels are consistently good both in the food, ambience and helpful friendliness of the staff.
We were celebrating a birthday and were made to feel very welcome, even given a small birthday dessert and candle at the end! Highly recommended.
Very high quality standard of food. I ended up having three courses and it was all beautifully presented, at the correct temperature, and highly delicious. A nice setting, outside in the sunshine, remarkably peaceful for the heart of Soho. Good service, nice crockery, stunning bathrooms. I would both recommend and return.
Lovely staff lovely ambience
Vegan options this time were very disappointing and unimaginative. The vegan options on my previous visit were very good.
8 of us went to The Courtyard at The Ham Yard Hotel for my husbands 50th birthday. Thankfully, we were blessed with warm weather so were able to sit outside without any covers for the whole time. The service was fabulous - attentive without being over bearing. Everyone enjoyed all the food, the drinks flowed and we were not rushed off (we actually had the table for 4 1/2 hours). It was one of the best family days we have had - thank you so much (even the Vegan pavlova birthday cake was fabulous!)
Waiters couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful and we were all just so delighted to be out!
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
Lovely service and enjoyable dining experience with tasty food as always
Excellent food and service .Good level of heating for the outside space.
