Dishes range from house-glazed Ham Yard ham and hand rolled pasta to chilli beans on toast and ice cream sandwiches and not forgetting the ever popular Champagne afternoon teas. Our discerning guests will be tempted back time and again to sample our selection of small bar dishes, including truffled mascarpone and ham melts, pulled pork sliders with chipotle and parsley and cured sea trout with beet and horseradish.

We have been to the Ham Yard a few times, and always considered it to be our favourite restaurant whilst visiting London. However after Saturday I had a very upset tummy and felt quite unwell. This happend on the train on the way home. This has never happend to me before. Also the service was very slow in bringing over our drinks once they had been ordered. I don't think we will be coming back which is a shame. E Clover

The portions on the set menu are on the small size and not a great choice for non-pork eaters, a fish main would have been appreciated. Quality of food is very high. Can't fault it as a venue as there is a real buzz about the place and the decor is so quirky

Booked outdoor seating on opentable and they said they had no outdoor seating available on arrival. Set menu quite limited. Smoked Mackerel salad had barely a scrap of smoked mackerel in it. Pork with harissa was delicious though! Staff and ambiance was lovely. Overall, good value, but wouldn’t go back again.

We went for the 2 course deal. Choice was a little limited and portions were very small. But quality and flavour were excellent. Wine is v expensive as are cocktails. Our total bill was £120 for the meal which came with a drink, a further carafe of rose , 3 cocktails (not each!) and the tip.

I booked a table for 4 for a pre-theatre meal at 6pm on a Friday, we were seated in the outside terrace which was lovely and the service was excellent. We had a show to get too at 7.30 and managed to fit in a 3 course meal in that time.
The food was delicious and such good value for what it was. I'd definitely recommend it for pre theatre dining.

I booked a large table (& an additional overspill table) for my leaving dinner and I was so impressed with how everything was handled. In particular our waitress, Rasa, was exceptional. For a large group everything was very relaxed and unhurried. It made such a difference to the evening and we stayed far longer than anticipated. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and bar - such a great feel and such professional and friendly staff. Very well done!

We visit the Hamyard restaurant a few times per year and this time we had a lovely seat outside. The terrace outside is really special and unique in central London. Secluded, quiet and romantic in the middle of Soho.
The service was meant well and we had a lovely waitress but their system of serving drinks needs work as it takes really long. By the time we received our first glass of wine we were half through our dinner and we send back a second glass of wine as it arrived after we finished our dessert. A free tea was offered though. The food was mediocre for the prices being charged. We love the Hamyard hotel restaurant but for asking the prices they do they really have to up their game.

This is my third visit. Previously I ordered from the. Fixed price menu which was very tasty and excellent value. I was told that this was no longer available so I ordered a crab salad which was pretty ordinary not helped by the anchovies with which it was mixed. There are a lot of superb restaurants offering lunch at around £20. For example Milos so I’m afraid I won’t be going back.

Service was absolutely appalling, had to ask the waiters for absolutely everything, including a request to take our food order, and to order more wine. Dont know what's up with some people. Very annoying that a service charge is always added on, but this is VERY difficult to remove when you are hosting clients. I wont be going back. The food and atmosphere was nice but not amazing.

Main course portion sizes very small. This was resolved by the restaurant manager who proceeded to present us with an additional portion which was a nice gesture and appreciated. A little something could be offered with the teas/coffees . We had mint teas which were £4.50!!! and a little biscuit, tablet or such like should be offered with that. The service was very good. May go back on a deal.

The afternoon tea was a lovely experience to share with out of town guests. Good value for money and the service was excellent.
This was our first time visiting the Ham Yard and I was not aware of the different seating areas. Next time I will be sure to request a table in the Orangerie. A lovely oasis with relaxed seating a, sky lights and greenery. There were tables available in the orangerie but we were told we could not be moved without booking a table there two days in advance.

The Ham Yard is always a great location, nice ambiance. But the food---really really mediocre. The steak which we ordered medium came back fully cooked and tough, and the fish was just 'fine'. Great wine, nice atmosphere but not a place to bring a foodie.

We enjoyed a breakfast outside on a very warm Saturday in London at the tranquil Ham Yard.
Staff were great and the breakfast choices were varied and excellently presented. Would not be surprised to hear that Ham Yard was voted as Best London Breakfast!
