On the 4th floor of the hotel there is a large, leafy roof top garden with sweeping views over the London skyline. There is a lounge area scattered with Whitman benches, upholstered seating and a bar. Watched over by two ancient olive trees and surrounded by apple and pear fruit trees, the garden blooms all year round with seasonal flowers from poppies and lemon verbena to jasmine, creating a wild meadow. Raised beds made of railway sleepers and picket fencing form salad, herb and vegetable gardens, its produce served in the restaurant’s daily specials. During the summer months, strawberries, gooseberries, broccoli, kale and thyme can be found growing.
Placed at the back of the garden sit two bee hives which are tended to by a dedicated bee keeper. With over 600 bees in residence, the honey is used by the bar staff in the cocktail menu.
The Roof Terrace at Ham Yard Hotel will hold 100 people for a reception
