About Ham

Hām is a casual, friendly, local restaurant offering simple but imaginative modern British food, cooked in a way that allows the quality of the ingredients to shine.

During the daytime we offer a changing brunch/lunch menu with healthy options and excellent coffee from Allpress.

In the evenings our short daily-changing menu will emphasise skilfully cooked high quality seasonal ingredients, complemented by a carefully chosen wine list which, like the menu, will change regularly.

Chef Matt Osborne

* Hām is the anglo-saxon word for home...Its still present in many UK place names . Hampstead literally means "homestead". We want everyone who visits us to be shown the same care we would show guests in our own home

Unfortunately, everyone in our group of 7 thought the food was very overpriced by some distance. The 'discretionary' addition of £50 service charge was unwarranted with the service being at best, average.

This the second time I have visited Ham. The first time we had a fabulous time and service was excellent . So much so that I decided to take my mother for her birthday. We did definitely not have the same experience. Our waitress was unhelpful, when I came to our food selection, she failed to attend our table and almost forgot we were paying customers. It is a shame because it was a distraction from the food.

Having been previously so impressed we returned after about a year. What a disappointment. The a la carte menu was limited and all food was mediocre, especially the lamb which was exceedingly fatty. The portions, starters and main courses, were incredibly small. Sadly, the service was somewhat indifferent. We will not be back any time soon.

Wonderful evening! We were looking for something a bit different, to celebrate a special occasion, but not overly formal/stuffy - this was perfect. Friendly service, felt like a real neighbourhood restaurant, and phenomenal food and drink throughout. The sharing concept was great fun too. Would definitely come again and also recommend!

We were so disappointed with our experience on Saturday night. By 20:15 when we arrived, we were told that there was already no lamb and that the cod dish was now sea bream. With a menu comprising of just four main courses, it is shameful to run out of anything, never mind on a Saturday evening as early as 20:15. Not only this, but one of our party had called at 18:30 on the same evening to check that the cod was available, as she is a fussy eater. You would think that this had been noted by the person who took her call, but no; there was no cod and no apology from the person who took the call. Service was incredibly slow. An hour in, we had received 2 tiny starters and nothing else. Looking around, only one table was eating. Everyone else was waiting. We had to ask for the wine twenty minutes after we had ordered it. Our waiter was apologetic and pleasant, but clearly he could do nothing to ease the situation of a kitchen seemingly unable to cope with the number of covers in the restaurant. Sadly, apart from the confit of duck and the well prepared sea bream, we all found the food very disappointing. Am example of this was the pastry tart, with some ricotta, a few raw beans and a couple of grapes. This is hardly cooking; more like food arranging. In short, this was an extremely disappointing experience in pretty much every way.

Some lovely dishes, others a little hit and miss ie duck . Service was excellent, but the tables are too close together which results in a cramped experience

Outstanding service / food, could find zero faults excepting the menu was so attractive we had to pretty much eat everything on it which proved to be rather filling.

Our meal was exceptional, great dishes treated with so much love by the chef and his team. The front of house staff treated us so well too as well as being very knowledgable about the wine.
