Ham Yard Hotel London

Ham Yard Hotel- Food and a STUNNING Interior

Why did I visit the Ham Yard Hotel immediately after returning to London from my holiday in the US?

Because it is simply gorgeous!

More importantly, it is because my blogger mate Angie from Silverspoon London invited me there for lunch. Because of her wedding and epic one month honeymoon and my new job and trip to the US, we hadn’t seen each other in over two months. So, we felt our lunch date had to be somewhere exquisite.Ham Yard Hotel London

The Ham Yard Hotel is one of eight Firmdale Hotels in London. You may remember my recent trip to their Charlotte Street Hotel when I met a group of bloggers for afternoon tea. The afternoon tea food selections are some of the best I’ve had in London.

This hotel is located just north of Piccadilly Circus at One Ham Yard, London W1D 7DT.

Angie and I decided to order lunch from the a la carte menu in the restaurant. But, first we kicked off our catch up session with a Veuve Clicquot champagne toast.

And, since this Florida girl loves her seafood, let’s just say I would not have complained if they had tossed a few extra scallops on my dish. <insert image of sea otter being tossed treats here> 😉

For my Main course, I selected the Poached Cod, Parsley Risotto and Pancetta.

Angie’s Grilled Tuna, Tomato Braised Artichokes, Aubergine and Olives looked fabulous. She indicated it was tasty too.

In fact, one of the unique features that sets this hotel apart from others in London is- it has a bowling alley! Check it out…

Tossing off our heels in exchange for some of these flat kicks was pretty tempting.

All kidding aside, I found it hard as a Florida girl not to take a souvenir home from this spiraling art work.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to London. I know I’ll return often for food and drinks. Next on my list is trying their afternoon tea. If it’s anything like what they offer at their Charlotte Street Hotel, it will be nothing short of amazing. Has anyone tried it yet?

  1. What an amazing hotel I love the quirkiness of the interior and the food looks yummy. I hope that Angie shared some of her honeymoon pics, she looks like she and MR S had quite an adventure. Hope that you are well and really chuffed on the new job. Lucy x

    1. Hi Lucy! Yes, it’s always fun catching up with Angie. Their interiors at Firmdale Hotels are so stunning. I absolutely will try this hotel’s tea soon. We should plan a lunch or cocktails date soon!

  2. This hotel looks fabulous – I can’t believe it has its own bowling alley – it’d be such a great location for a really classy but retro party!! I’m a huge fan of risotto, fish and pancetta and cook all these things quite regularly at home so that main course would definitely opt for that but yep, I’m a hungry girl and would definitely want my portion to fill!! 🙂

    1. I agree, portion sizes make a big difference. I will say when I went to their Charlotte Street Hotel’s afternoon tea that there was no way I could finish everything. And I can usually eat quite a bit!
