Restaurant description

An escape from the lively hustle and bustle of Soho, Ham Yard Bar & Restaurant offers modern British cuisine. Enjoy classic flavours in a plush yet contemporary setting, adorned with an eclectic mix of colourful patterns and fabrics.

Beer-battered oysters and kohlrabi are highlights for starters, followed by pork belly with mustard lentils and salsa verde or tuna with chorizo for main. You might find vanilla crème brûlée with Armagnac poached prunes on the seasonally changing menu, for an autumnal twist on the popular dessert.

The bar at Ham Yard in Soho has its own menu, offering snacks, sliders and melts as well as a selection of ‘profitabombes’ for a sweet treat. Afternoon tea is exceptionally popular here, with sweet and savoury favourites served alongside a wide range of teas.

A unique setting, the Ham Yard in London even boasts its own bowling alley. Ham Yard is found a 3-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    Excellent experience. I had a couple of dietary requirements that I had emailed ahead and meant they were prepared and ready for us arriving. Was sat in the area outside the conservatory which was absolutely divine in its atmosphere! So relaxing! Such beautiful surroundings. The food was amazing, we had the afternoon tea and my toddler ate from the kids menu that is really great value for money! We had a wonderful hostess Ilise (spelling). She was perfect in her customer service as well as good fun to chat with and she was amazing with my 20 month old son. Flawless, seamless and wonderful experience from start to finish!

    Beautiful setting and fantastic service. However, cakes not overly fresh and scones hard and over baked

    Great little find. I am always a little worried about booking a hotel restaurant as you can sometimes find them very underwhelming, however not here at all! Afternoon tea was superb and the waitresses who served us were exceptional I have not received the same level of service and attention to detail anywhere in London before! A great little trick with her asking to take your photos with the afternoon tea, not only does it make us feel special and welcomed but will also work well with social media coverage! Because it’s the first thing we did!! She went through the menu throughly and was very attentive to make sure we always had our drinks refilled. A very enjoyable afternoon in a beautiful hotel. Would definitely visit again.

    The afternoon tea was lovely - I requested gluten free on my booking and they provided a delicious selection of gluten free sandwiches and cakes. We received attentive service, the only negative was the outdoor heater was low on gas so it kept turning off leaving us a bit chilly but this is to be expected late afternoon mid September!

    Afternoon tea in the conservatory was delightful! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff including accommodating my gluten free dietary request at very short notice. The sandwiches & cake were delicious. I would thoroughly recommend eating & drinking at Ham Yard.

    Afternoon tea was excellent. Even menu items that I thought I wouldn't enjoy were delicious! Staff were delightful and the service was excellent. Couldn't fault it. Great value for money.

    Atmosphere, staff, and service very good. Drinks excellent. Food disappointing. Sandwiches dry and lacking in flavour. Cakes again on the dry side.

    We were slightly disappointed not to be able to take afternoon tea in the lovely conservatory as we came here for tea last year and enjoyed it so much we wanted to return. However the quality of the food and the service is do good we still really enjoyed it. The service is what makes the occasion special. The surroundings are lovely but every single person who served us made such a lovely effort to be friendly, helpful and polite and make us feel special. To get this kind of service in central London these days for something like afternoon tea is a real treat. We recommended the hotel to other people on the strength of our visit last year. The scones are wonderful and I’ve had a lot of cream teas in Devon and Cornwall! Loved the passion fruit jam. A lot of thought has gone into the flavours and quality of the cakes and it didn’t disappoint. Been to other places where they give you lots of cream and jam but the quality is nowhere near as good. Loved the quirky chinaware design. Can’t wait to come back
