Outside lunch just before lockdown, wall heaters, tasty food and charming staff. Would love to eat inside too when this is all over - looks lovely. Amazing that it is so central and yet tucked away.

the food and drinks were very good, however the service standards were haphazard - our waiter forgot our drinks order and served lukewarm food that we had to send back. it was delicious when it came back piping hot!

Always enjoy the ham yard restaurant. Seating is plush and comfortable. Food was delicious across all the courses, including the cheese board. Drinks were also great, we had a carafe of wine, some beer and champagne. They also bought out a small cake for our guests birthday which was a nice surprise. Highly recommend this venue

We celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary at Ham yard restaurant. Enjoyed the food with very good service. So pleased that we managed to celebrate our wedding anniversary at the ham yard restaurant before the lockdown started.

Have been here before but this was the first time dined al fresco because of the COVID rules. Highly recommend the experience. The Yard is a very pleasant place to eat. The food is good - not pretentious just really tasty. And the staff are delightful. If you have you eat outside in October/November - this a great venue.

Enjoyed the venue, food and ambience were good. We spent time in both the cocktail bar area and the restaurant. The only downside was that the staff were not very attentive. However, when we did get their attention they were polite, friendly and professional.

Having booked the £35 per person meal deal for 2 courses and a glass of fizz, this was not offered to us when arriving. Although we didn’t actively push to get this offer the fact that it was booked as this and not shown as an offer in restaurant makes us feel like we were tricked and ended up spending over £80 per person. It has left a really bad taste in our mouths and will have me considering if I would come back again as this is a very sneaky way of doing business especially at this difficult time

This breakfast experience was not great.
The property is fantastic, the ambience very quiet, no atmosphere.
The food and was excellent.
Understandably the experience and my results were largely due to the Covid restrictions.

We were seated outside to comply with the revised Covid measures, we were sat in between two heaters which kept us warm.

We ordered from the main menu and the steaks we ordered were not great, the fillet seemed to have a "rind" of sorts and the rib-eye tasted "grassy" - neither have I ever experienced. The mushroom soup was was WOW and would recommend it as were the poached pears.

Service is always amazing and the Ham Yard has a great vibe - I would recommend paying this place a visit!

Even though the restaurant wasn’t full we were put on a table next to a door that was constantly opened and closed and a table were the staff stood to sort cutlery, water jugs etc. The rib eye steak was poor and had an off smell that concerned me. Pretty average meal for a 50th celebration.

I went for the start of my birthday celebrations but my breakfast of pancakes were undercooked
The waiter offered me a replacement but I did not want to take a chance on this so just ordered a croissant which would have been nicer if warmed up
My husband had the cooked breakfast which was fine
I was not charged For the pancakes and the croissant was gratis
The waiter apologised for the pancakes and said chef said the mixture was not good so why was I given them?
I have eaten before in ham yard and it’s been fine
Overall this time I was really disappointed

The Ham Yard is always great. Food and service are always reliably terrific and the ambiance too. Just when the bill comes I always wonder where all the money went. Maybe the cocktails?

Food was good but not exceptional. Tartare was below par. Linguine average.
Staff did their best with the restrictions. Serving behind masks cannot be easy.

We had a good experience on Saturday afternoon. The service was super quick and out waitress was very attentive. The good was average, nothing too special. We had a beetroot salad and salmon cake a little blunt but ok. The ambiance was good. Drinks were overpriced and additional charge was added to our bill which was taken off when we have noticed. Overall I wouldn’t recommend it for a set menu meal but cocktails are nice and good atmosphere.

Great covid dining experience. Easy to book outdoor table, space heaters for warmth, good spacing and conscientious staff. Always quite a comforting menu, not super exciting but usually what you want. I think this is always a good place to catch up with old friends, as it basically has what you want without too much fuss.

No track and trace, tables seated too close together. So many people in the bar area with no social distancing.

Good food and cocktails though with overall attentive service
