Absolutely fantastic experience for a birthday treat for my partner that was enhanced by the personal and intensive service by our server, Antonio who went out of his way to ensure we had a great time.
First class food, brilliant service and all staff encountered certainly knew how to make us feel welcome and special
We will certainly be returning soon.

I booked this meal as a pre-theatre meal and birthday treat for myself. I was welcomed very warmly by the staff and everyone could not have done more to ensure I had a good time. The meal was excellent and contained generous portions for a set menu. It included a glass of champagne, which soon lead to another glass of sparkling wine. During the meal I got a message saying the theatre show had been cancelled, which of course was disappointing. On mentioning this to the floor manager, she immediately arranged for another glass of champagne - on the house, and also spent time giving me ideas of what else I could do in London to enjoy the rest of the evening. They also remembered my birthday with a 'Happy Birthday' dessert. I am well out of the age range of their usual clientele, but I was not hidden away in a corner and they made me feel special. I shall remember this great evening for a long time. Thanks to all you lovely staff. I shall definitely come back for another pre-theatre meal, when I think this latest Covid wave has passed.

Overall a good experience.
Dining room is lovely and bar area always very buzzy.
Slightly lukewarm greeting on arrival but in fairness, nothing particular to complain about.
Service started rather slowly , slight wait to be asked about drinks. When we ordered champagne, was asked ‘oh did you want the set menu?’ Didn’t know there was one as an option so asked to see it. Would have just been better if it was on table along with the a la carte.
None the less, we selected from main menu and had a selection of starters to share. Food all generally very good and of high quality- just a bit expensive in my view. ( and I dine at lots of high end restaurants.)
However, you are paying for a lovely environment and overall quality. My daughter loved it and will definitely come back with friends.

Food pretty good if not exceptional. Service good but slightly overbearing. When you book so far in advance for three and get put on a square table for 4 in a noisy environment it made talking amongst all three of us simultaneously very difficult.

Service let our experience down. The dining room is beautiful as is the crockery but the whole thing felt rushed and not once did the server return to our table after setting down the food. This was a 21st bday outing and we were all left a little disappointed.

The Ham Yard Bar and restaurant was a great venue to catch up with friends both for drinks and dinner. We were seated in a nice banquette which was very comfortable and roomy. The service was unobtrusive but efficient. Food was good - terrine was lovely as a starter and the duck delicious. The chocolate liegeoise was a huge ice cream sundae, which was a lovely surprise! Overall a nice venue, with good food and a volume that you can comfortably chat together and not miss anything.

The table was outside and the evening was very cold. It was ridiculous to offer outside seating as the burners could not provide sufficient heating. Tad a consequence the experience was not nice and the food went cold quickly. The attendance outside was poor. The service charge of £25 was paid but reluctantly. There was 4 in our party and we wouldn’t return. Shame as it’s conveniently situated for the theatres.

Really nice and quite special for birthday afternoon tea. Only feedback really is book on the phone if it's for afternoon tea as it's not clear on line. And also they need more sandwiches and less sweets on the cake stand. Was too rich. But for the money it was really nice overall and the crockery and silverwear really add to the experience. Lovely.

We went to The Ham Yard Hotel for a belated birthday lunch for my partner. We’ve been there before for drinks and always wondered what the food would be like, it’s always busy, so for us, that’s a good sign. The food was amazing as were the staff, who were very attentive and friendly. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal, drinks and the overall experience and wouldn’t hesitate to go back again. On a personal note, it’s good that they have meat free options on their menu.
