Ham Yard restaurant … steak frites and guitars

When I visited: May 2019

Location: London (near Piccadilly Circus)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: Recommended

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 3/5

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.
