We were well looked after and the welcome and service were very warm. Understanding when we were delayed for our table because we helped someone who was unwell at Piccadilly station. Never felt rushed, even though we were the last in the restaurant!

Great restaurant, have been a few times and always a really enjoyable atmosphere. The price range is a little on the high side, but the food is always nice and it's a good choice for a long lunch, with a casual environment and excellent service + there's always a nice buzz without it being too busy!

Really tasty desserts (especially the scones) and great service. However have only give this three stars as the sandwiches were well below average. They tasted a bit old and like something anyone could have made at home with little effort.

Lovely afternoon tea with friends. Attentive but not overly fussy service, nice cakes and sandwiches and very nice scones in a stylish environment. Great value compared to many other afternoon tea offerings in central London.

Our server George was absolutely incredible. They could not have been more attentive or thoughtful even bringing over a cookie when my friend was upset. We stayed for over five hours and George helped make us have an amazing and very special lunch

The atmosphere at the Ham Yard is always lovely - beautiful setting with striking decor, lots of groups of people spread out in different areas yet quiet enough to have a conversation over dinner. The menu is small but adequate with several choices and I had the halibut that was tasty in a subtle understated way - one central bone and a saffron infused broth. The only downside is that it is on the expensive side - one course and a drink came to almost seventy pounds per person. Not sure this was the best value for money. Attentive service throughout the meal.

Food is nice, but that’s all; nice. Not worth the price. Volume level is not “enthusiastic” as this misleading answer in the survey states. - it’s loud in a negative sense, so not enthusiastic as you put it. Staff confused the order and brought desert before main course. Either lower the price or improve the all round service to justify the price.

This was a birthday treat, although we’ve been here before on normal outings. The staff are lovely, attentive without being intrusive. The food was a delight and there was a birthday treat from the restaurant. 🎂 A great evening!

Staff are very welcoming but not in your face attentive. The dining venue offers many different seating options and despite the size of the area, even with people at the table next to us, it is possible to chat without having to raise your voice to be heard.

Food is lovely - we have been on a number of occasions now and the experience is always delightful.

Nice atmosphere, decent food, if a little predictable and plastic. The star event was the waiter - completely charming, efficient, he was the star of the show.

Food and drink was absolutely delicious, but the service left a little to be desired.
The front desk staff were so lovely and friendly, but the waiting staff less so. One person in my party was made to feel quite silly when asking for “just a coffee” with her afternoon tea and for asking whether she needed to mention she was vegetarian, as she knew I had mentioned when booking.
At the end, we had quite a few cakes leftover and asked if we were able to take them away, when another member of staff bought over two boxes (there were five of us all going to separate places) and said there were no other options.
Such a shame as we were here for a special occasion and we were made to feel a little silly at times.

Simply delicious! Good selection of savoury, scones and sweet treats.

If being picky would prefer thinner bread and quicker delivery of the tea/coffee after the bubbles

But overall a very lovely tea

I must point out the impeccable service that we received at Ham Yard last night - absolutely first class! The atmosphere was great, vibrant without being overbearing. The food and drink were delicious and beautifully presented. The starters were really top-notch with a great selection. If I had to criticise, it would be that the list of mains is not massive but all the bases are covered (steak, fish, pasta, vegetarian, etc). We didn't have room for dessert but there were some tasty looking options plus a cheese board. Ham Yard is not a cheap option but in keeping for fine dining in central London. Highly recommended!

Didn't have food - just booked for cocktails. Beautiful delicious cocktails. Amazing interior and sunny terrace for the fine weather. Felt very welcomed and service was tip top. On the pricey side - £29 for 2 cocktails inc service - but you get what you pay for.
