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

Really lovely evening. Food excellent as always. The restaurant felt very safe, plenty space and air circulating. Service relaxed an friendly. Another step on the path to normal.

Restaurant is very well lit, so little atmosphere. Bar staff were friendly and welcoming but our waitress was gruff and not very communicative. Restaurant concept is interesting, offering just three mains; one vegetarian, one fish and one meat. When we were there the meat option was not available, which very much defeats the purpose. No alternative was offered (although asked for). Chicken dish could be prepared with everything but the chicken, which begs the question of why they didn't just go out and buy more chicken. We were told the cheese selection was suitable for one person only, yet it arrived with enough for up to three people to share so we had way too much. To make up for lack of main course, a couple of additional desserts were provided which was a nice gesture... although one with nuts even though we had noted that a guest was allergic. Overall a bit of a disaster and we won't go back. Been for brunch before which was quite nice and that's a safer option.

I went as part of the eat out to help out. So got a 3 course meal and a drink for a very good price. The service was excellent, as was the food. And the interior decoration and candles made for a great atmosphere. Keep up the good work.

Social distancing done perfectly. Civilised and thoroughly enjoyable. Felt safe and relaxed. A perfect antidote to lock-down. Thanks!

Had an wonderful supper at Ham. The food was absolutely delicious, the service impeccable, and ambience very chilled. We had pudding and coffee, so really went all out, it was great fun. Will definitely be going again very soon.

We had quail and pollock for main courses. Both delicious. I had rhubarb for dessert which was dissappointing as it was too tart and a little undercooked. Would recommend HAM highly

Only stayed for coffees as we were soon informed that there was no salmon, no ham, no bacon, no beans. I thought this place was going to be so cool as I had looked at your website and read through etc. the decor was so lovely but there was absolutely no vibe and the staff were not great.
