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.

First had afternoon tea at Ham Yard in 2016. It was excellent. Five years on, service and value have slipped into the rack em and stack em 3* market. The hotel, which hasn't changed, looks tired. It's very busy with business meetings and staff miss all the opportunities to make it feel special. Price has gone up, food quantity and quality has gone down. I'm sure they will blame Brex-Cov, it's always a convenient excuse, rather than step back and look at what they are attempting to offer. There are plenty of new places to go in London, places where they are genuinely keen to impress and offer a proper relaxed afternoon with excellent food. That's where I will head next time with my hard earned, leaving Ham Yard to it's complacency.

The booking was meant to be for afternoon tea for a 30th birthday, but apparently this wasn’t the case and they didn’t even offer to cater this for us (seeing that there were many other tables were having afternoon tea) as we came here specially for it

I love the buzzy atmosphere at The Ham Yard whatever time of day you visit. We were going to the theatre so had an early dinner and chose the 2 course set menu with glass of champagne. I had a Tom Collins Hoax which was good. We both had the onion soup which was delicious and a very generous serving. I had the fried aubergine and my niece had the stone bass, both very tasty. There is an extensive drinks menu and I had another Tom Collins Hoax and my niece had a cocktail (can’t remember which one). A very enjoyable meal.

The interior of the restaurant is beautiful. The service was a little slow. The wine was excellent. Food was okay / I think I made a fairly poor choice with the schnitzel. All round a pretty good experience.

This is one of the most stylish hotel restaurants in London. The service matches the style which is very unusual because at the moment it's so hard to find experienced team members for hospitality. This must be a great place to work to keep such good staff. The food was not bad although served beautifully and we took two fixed menus and one a la carte so it wasn't bad value. All in all a really lovely experience highly recommended.

The servers were absolutely lovely but it was hard to get their attention sometimes so we were waiting quite a while to order but once we did the food came very quickly and was very good. The set menu was a little underwhelming but excellent value for a restaurant in that location. Would definitely recommend.
