When I visited: May 2019
Location: London (near Piccadilly Circus)
Rating in the Michelin Guide: Recommended
What to wear: Men – jeans or nice trousers and a shirt; women – jeans and a smart top or a smart dress / workwear
Ambience: Business / casual, fun
Course of the meal: Burrata salad
If I could change one thing: More healthy options
The Ham Yard hotel is a good choice for a high-quality pre-lunch cocktail as well as for somewhere to stash the massive bass guitar you just bought on a birthday shopping spree.
We sat outside (after trusting them with the aforementioned beautiful bass and sinking the cocktails) on a sunny day and enjoyed glasses of Sancerre and Australian Chardonnay with a chilled asparagus soup and burrata salad. Our mains were the steak frites (good but enormous) and lamb, followed by a shared panna cotta.
I would definitely go back for a drink or quick meal with colleagues or friends.
