The Jam Tree - Clapham

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.

Little overpriced for the location but solid enough for a team night out and a quick catch up. The Hog Roast they do is worth a go as well, but only if you're going that way anyway

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 


January is the month to visit as they have 50% off all food all month! Every Londoner loves a good deal.

This makes the delicious food here incredibly worth the visit, I prefer the branch in chelsea for drinks and the Clapham branch for food as its much larger. 

I would recommend the Venison (down from 24 to 12 pounds this month), really tender and juicy with cumberland sauce and sweet celeriac puree. The cheeseburger was also a table favourite and for starters get the baked honey goats cheese and crispy squid to share. 

There was also a popup art event on when I went last week, behind a bookcase was a hidden door where you could do some canvas painting to de stress whilst sipping on their lovely peach bellinis. 


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.

Took my best friend for a belated birthday brunch to the Jam Tree in Clapham and LOVED it... We both opted for a brunch dish of eggs royal (which was delicious) and treated ourselves to dessert in the form of creme brûlée and sticky toffee pudding (lush). We indulged in the unlimited prosecco deal too - an absolute bargain for £15 each and they were not mean on the pours, leaving full bottles on the table to allow us to keep topped up!

Service, decor and atmosphere all ace too. Highly recommend. #TOTasteMaker

Funky, innovative and delish, what more do you want from a restaurant. Loved it and will be back!

This is without a doubt my favourite place to go for a Sunday Roast in Clapham. The meat is always perfect and the roasted veg are divine. Cauliflower cheese in a separate serving dish is also a nice touch. Love the lay out of this restaurant and the open air dining area in the Summer gives a nice al fresco feel to your meal.The staff are also some of the nicest and friendliest people who I have come across. Also a great place for drinks at the weekend and the outside area around the back of the restaurant is a nice surprise. Popped in this weekend just to get dessert, the chocolate panache is a must try! It can be a bit pricey though!


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!
