Great place to dine! The restaurant and adjoining hotel are decorated remarkably, so Firmdale-like! The veal was delicious and ample, and the pasta was good (a little over cooked, for us - but we prefer al dente). The smoked raw salmon appetizer was the best we have had. The service was impeccable, and you can tell that everyone truly likes working there, from the hostess, thru the waitstaff, and manager, who all could not do enough for us!

My kids and I took husband/dad for brunch for Father's Day. The table was lovely in a good position and we were immediately served with water, menus and quickly after some drinks. The brunch menu is varied and not over priced considering the location.The food took quiet a long time to come but we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter. However, my son got the wrong dish and while the waiter was very apologetic and brought the missing ingredients it was still a little irritating. The food was excellent although portion sizes were on the small side. We then ordered some pastries and another small dish. Again we were served with the wrong thing. Again, there was no problem in correcting the mistake but really at this level it shouldn't happen twice!
Overall we had a lovely time and the hotel itself is gorgeous. I would come back for a drink at the bar and perhaps afternoon tea but not sure if I'd eat in the main restaurant again.

I was quite upset because when I was doing a booking, I requested a table outside on the terrace. Unfortunately, no one told me that the rooftop was closed that night, even when I called for some detailed information - still no one corrects me that the table actually was on the ground floor.

We took up the deal for 3 courses plus a glass of fizz for £24. As with a lot of these deals, you don't get a huge plateful, but as we were off to the theatre that was OK. Extensive wine list. Service was friendly & efficient. Sit outside in the conservatory area or at the bar area if you can.

We visited Ham Yard for my daughters 18th birthday. Aside from the food being exceptional, the service couldn’t have been more attentive. Our waiter even asked if we’d like a birthday dessert plate for her as a surprise. She loved it. We will definitely return for lunch and afternoon tea again

I visit the restaurant quite often, for work and personal dinners. I consider it a fail-safe option due to the wonderful service, food and atmosphere. The bar is lively and perfect for a pre-dinner drink. The menu is seasonal and the waiters/waitresses' are very helpful in recommending choices and they can explain dishes in detail if needed.
I would definitely recommend for a personal special occasion or informal/relaxed business dinner.

We sat outside for lunch & had the 2 courses with a glass of prosecco. I hadn’t read the menu correctly so the glass of fizz came as a welcome surprise! Lovely food, lovely outside courtyard area. Just what 3 ‘old’ school friends that haven’t seen each other in years needed! Would highly recommend.

What a find!
A lovely evening - excellent service and delicious food. Great VFM on the set menu.
Wines a bit pricey, our muscadet was £30.00
We sat inside however it's in a courtyard so outside dining on a warm summers evening would be ideal - no traffic but in the centre of town.
Highly recommend

The afternoon tea is supposed to be one of the best in London. My gluten-free scone was veery dry. The sandwich combination’s we not nearly as delicious as their sister restaurants in NYC ( The Whitby & The Crosby Bar). The ham & pickle sandwich was very unappetizing. There was little filling in the sandwiches.

Really like the decor and ambience
My friend texted me, as she was waiting for me, to say 'It's lovely here!'

Always buzzy at ham. Sat with a friend outside, nice but got chilly towards the end of evening.
Attentive waitress who was diligent and personable.
My friend had fillet steak and broccoli, sauce, plus glass red wine.Said it was v good.Around £50 w tip.
I had the healthy roasted squash salad with advocado and chicken. Nice. Good portion size but nothing special for £24 inc tip.

Always love designer Kit Kemp's decor at Ham, so worth it for that...🌞

Excellent food and well presented. Staff attentive and not anxious to rush you. However because it was a pre-theatre meal after work, we did not have enough time to have a dessert which was disappointing as the options sounded wonderful!
