Very agreeable and helpful staff and good food in an eclectic setting bringing together elements of design one could never imagine working together, but do.

A first in London!!!.....a fixed priced menu that had proper sized portions.....Really great customer service from the moment we arrived, some of the best I have had anywhere. The A La carte Menu was not too exciting, but the Fixed Price one with a glass of fizz was super value.....watch out for the drinks though, which while no more than any other London / SoHo good quality restaurant, can soon double or triple the cost of the evening. But don't let this deter you from trying Ham Yard - it was very, very good and a nice surprise with a great atmosphere!

This is constantly great value. The staff are lovely, and the service is excellent, whether you are eating a la carte or their low cost fixed lunch offer. Ham Yard is a peaceful oasis in the otherwise busy and noisy Piccadilly area. The food is always delicious, its a great place to meet for lunch or afternoon tea. It is definitely our 'go to' restaurant when we are in the area.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch (good food and excellent service) catching up with an old friend in London for the day - made extra special because we could sit outside in the courtyard!

Really disappointed that the set menu has been reduced to only 5-5.39pm without advance warning from the hosts before seating is. Far too short a time period and too early for a dinner menu. Used to be a good option for a mid week catch up but making it more a pricey option for special occasions. Hopefully the venue will re think. I’ll be looking elsewhere for future regular meet ups.

This was an amazing evening. I’ve been before but not for an occasion and it just exceeded all expectations in that regard - the food was really good as always and the service we had, esp for my dad’s birthday, was phenomenal. Thank you guys for another absolutely lovely time.

I love The Ham Yard so much, I always have such a good time there. Yes, it's expensive, but you really get what you pay for. It's always my go-to option when in the Soho area as it's so hard to know where to go around there. It's cool, smart vibes without being snobby, the food is great and the decor is sublime. There were quite a few mess-ups with our service; we ended up waiting for about 40 mins for our mains and also a while for our cocktails to arrive, but the waiters were really apologetic and gave us complimentary cocktails and a glass of champagne. If you're in the area then I definitely recommend you check The Ham Yard out, it's a firm favourite of mine!

Impressive venue. Good service. Very relaxed. I've been to Ham Yard several times and always enjoy the visit. The food is good and at a reasonable price. After the meal we had drinks in the lounge area. It's an excellent City centre location.

Booked to have the Lunch Set option and was told they did not have it!! Why advertise it !!!
My husband's Main was Mackerel and what was on the plate was a small Starter ....
My Son's Main was the Lamb ... cooked well however floating peas in a watery gravy !!
I had the beetroot salad which was ok.
Sadly to say very disappointed ..

Compated to 4 previous visits over the past 3 years food was nothing special, not tasty at all. Service was poor, due to lack of language. Big disappointment!

I personally love this place. Attended for lunch on Sunday. The food is excellent, service good, ambience and atmosphere wonderful. It's very spacious, not noisy, beautiful decor and design, and overall a real pleasure to meet people there for a convivial time. Second time I've been and I'm sure I will be back.

Had a lovely time again we were welcomed into the Ham Yard by Alex and Emilia these 2 people were to look after my wife and i for the whole of the Meal , we decided to eat outside on Saturday evening as the weather was so nice Emilia showed us to our table and said if it gets chilly the would put on the over head halogen heaters . Whilst choosing from the Menu i had noticed a problem with our reservation due to me once i had spoken to Alex the problem was resolved. The starters were very well presented and delicious as was the main courses we cannot fault anything and Emilia attended to us very professionally indeed . As for the price great value i thought which was 2 large Tanquery gin+ tonics 29.50 , 2 courses of the set menu with a side of spinach 43.50, 1 Caribbean coffee 7.50 , 12.5 service charge , vat Total 90.56 all in all with the ambience , surroundings , and fantastic service worth every penny . Thanks to all at The Ham Yard but Mostly to Alex and Emilia

I have eaten a few times now at Ham Yard. The service is always excellent - professional, attentive and friendly staff and the food is always of a high standard. The decor, ambience and beautiful crockery add to the positive experience. The bar is also a great place for a cocktail. This time I had 3 friends from Germany with me and they were all impressed too with Ham Yard.

We decided to dine here since our first visit last year was incredible. Sadly our second visit was not. What drew us to eating dinner recently here was the beautiful outdoor terrace. However the experience was so disappointing. The presentation of the food we ordered was awful and certainly not to the prices or standard the hotel upholds. The tuna with lemon for a hefty £19 was presented slapped on a plate with absolutely no garnish nor did it look appetising. Literally a chunk of tuna and a half lemon. My request for medium rare was more medium to well done. My partner and I both felt the way the manager slapped our main courses on the table she seemed somewhat in a rush, as absolutely no consideration to us as diners or to care if we even liked the look of the plates and we were left feeling like why did we bother to pay for this restaurant at all. We spoke to the waitress with these complaints and she said she will talk to the manager. Only all she did was bring the card machine and we paid and left in disgust. Sadly they have lost two customers as we will not be returning.

Great food and good service though the food consistently took about 25 mins to come to the table but as we were chatting loads, we didn’t mind the breaks.
