There are two Jam Trees in London: this, in Clapham's Old Town, and another on the King's Road. The outside area at this two-floor venue proves popular in the summer but it's flexible enough to draw the crowds throughout the year, with a cheery crowd getting stuck into signature cocktails, seven draught beers and a range of wines from across the globe.
The food menu boasts a slant toward modern-British dishes but options such as pork noodle soup, sweetcorn and chilli fritters in a lemongrass and shallot purée, and pulled pork burgers with sweet pickle coleslaw also feature. Breakfasts and brunches do brisk business, too.

Went for a meal tonight with friends and thought our visit worthy of a comment. Simply, we all agreed that the food was too expensive for what it was; unremarkable pub food (but apparently its ok to charge £24 for a steak because we're in Clapham Old Town! Which, incidentally, was very average). Secondly, they do not section off the restaurant area and we found ourselves and our table being swamped by drunks towards the end, let alone shouting at each other across the table to be heard over the noise! We probably wouldn't return here for another meal which is a shame since it's very nice inside.
Went for a Christmas meal with friends. Slow service, incredibly rude staff (especially the manager who spent over 20 minutes arguing with us), and hugely overpriced food. On top of that we are still waiting for our deposit to be refunded of which they are denying taking in the first place. Avoid at all costs.
I've been a few times at different times of day, different times of the week. It gets really trashy at the weekend, often fights break out, so I generally avoid
I went here recently on a Sunday and we were extremely lucky to get the last available table. It seems that you now have to book here but this may also have something to do with the fact that are now doing Bottomless Brunch - something I am not complaining about. We just had standard brunch which was delicious although quite pricey compared to other places in Clapham. It does have a great atmosphere though and is perfect for both food and/or drinks, although I wouldn't want to attempt to eat there on a Friday or Saturday night as it is much more of a bar at that point.
I love coming here. It's a few roads away from me and I've been here a few times. The drinks are great - very reasonably priced - and the decor is excellent. I love the hidden door to the second room. Always has a really lively and fun atmosphere
My fav place in South London. That squid starter is too addictive and everyone seems nice and friendly. We eat there regularly in the week as the food is half price with our card, makes it all more worth while! Top points!
