    Brilliant food for the pre-theatre set menu- very good quality, tasty and excellent value for money. Lovely interior and atmosphere if quite noisy. Large tables and plenty of room. We arrived at 6pm with theatre at 7.30 (just next door) only reason I’ve marked it down as service was very relaxed and perhaps a little slow for those heading to the theatre, it left us rushing out of the restaurant at 7.20- luckily didn’t have far to go!! My advice would be if you are doing the pre-theatre menu here leave plenty of time, as this isn’t a quick eat! Food was so delicious and lovely surroundings.

    Buzzy vibe and plenty of great staff to hand, but the food was decidedly average. When I pay almost £30 for a pasta ragu, I’m looking for something a notch up from a chain restaurant.

    Lovely setting, inattentive staff. It seemed there was no one waiter assigned outta le. I had a dry pork chop — no one came by to ask how the food was. Sides were missing… felt like a lot of work (patience) to be a customer. Went for a special treat at the holidays. Would not recommend.

    A fantastic space well designed. On arrival were told ‘ I can find a space for you ‘ as if we were a walk in whilst the gentlemen leant against the wall as if he had bette things he could be doing - even though we arrived exactly on time for our reservation. From sitting down took us 1 hour before anything touched our lips. Food good as you’d expect but underwhelming when compared to ‘proper’ London restaurants.

    Although the whole place was HEAVING on a pre-Christmas Saturday evening (even at 5.15pm) we only had a short wait to be seated. Despite how busy they were we had superb service and great food. The whole buzz of the place was great. Highly recommended.

    Great food ( monkfish Wellington & the spinach side were really delicious). The service was disappointing. Took ages for the order to be taken, several items were wrong, the sides ordered were not inputted with our mains so our mains arrived a good 10 minutes before the sides. Overall not very attentive service.

    I love the Ham Yard Hotel but our latest visit was a bit of a shambles. We had to wait 45mins for our table to be ready and were asked to wait at the bar. Given you have to pay a deposit when booking and are only given a 15min grace period as a guest, this doesn’t seem right. Also, since we’d already met at the bar earlier, additional drinking time wasn’t what we needed at that point. When our table was finally ready, it took ages until our order was taken. At the end of the evening, there was an additional item on our bill that we hadn’t ordered. They did take a couple of drinks off the bill as an apology when prompted, but this wasn’t offered as a gesture of goodwill, which is what I would have expected for a restaurant of this standing and price point. The food and ambience were lovely as always, but the service was disappointing this time round.

    As per previous review this restaurant is lying to people and saying they are booked outside when they actually have booked inside. Either call and confirm before or just avoid.

    Disappointing I booked this restaurant for a friend's birthday dinner. They had an issue with their booking system that was placing people outside despite having booked inside ( one of the employees told me we were the third ones having the issue). The manager didn't believe me when I said I booked inside and treated us poorly. In the end, he said he "did us a favor" and sat us inside, which wasn't any favor as my reservation clearly said standard sitting and not outside. So after waiting to be sat for a while, we had a medium dinner. Quite a loud place and the food was average, my tortellini fait maison was thick and extremely overpriced as I paid £28 for 10 tortellini. Unfortunately, I found that the place was overpromising and underperforming. I will not go back and I neither recommend this place when there are tons of better restaurants in London.

    Unfortunately the set menu was not available on a Sunday afternoon which wasn’t clear anywhere when we booked. Of the 3 Sunday roast choices only one was available. The food was excellent just not the value and choice we were expecting.

    Came for a late lunch with a friend. We had the set menu which was reasonably priced and included a glass of champagne. Good menu choices available and the food was delicious. Firmdale restaurants always consistently produce good food! Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff were efficient and attentive. We weren’t rushed off the table. Recommend.

    It’s always a delight to bring friends who’ve never been before as it’s such a nice surprise when you turn the corner into Ham Yard. The decor is exceptional, the staff could not be more helpful and the food was delicious. Not the cheapest place to lunch but we thought it was worth the price.

    Excellent service - by people who were happy to be there. The food is first class - very tasty and also good sized portions (though, as always, more veg would help!). Even the coffee is good. The atmosphere is great too - not loud, but energetic and inviting.

    金曜日の夜だったので、カジュアルなエリアは混んでいてザワザワしていたが、スクリーンを隔てた奥のエリアは静かで落ち着いた雰囲気で食事ができた。 料理の量は年寄りには少し多く、味は良いだけに、もしスモールポーションの選択肢があればもっと良かったと思う。

    This was the best experience we have had dinning in London. We chose to have high tea. This was our second time having high tea in London. The first time was at Kensington. That was the worst experience. Since I love high tea. I could not leave London without a great high tea experience. This restaurant and waiter out did themselves. Not only was it gorgeous but delicious. I had gluten free and my kids had standard. Our waiter was amazing. Had such a fun personality. The food was amazing and never felt rushed or that we needed to hurry. Next time I am in London I will be eating here.

    We ate at Ham Yard on a Monday night in mid September '23. Restaurant was quieter than we have previously seen it. Good selection of dishes on the 3 course set menu and very good value for money. Had a lovely meal with excellent service, will go back again
