It's only a small restaurant, cafe, bar but Jam Street tries hard when it comes to food.  With it's wood filled interior that's - let's be honest - nothing special, and kitchens upstairs from where we were eating, we weren't expecting much especially after recent reports that it hadn't been great recently.    

We entered and met the barman and waiter - (the only person working) - who was helpful and pleasant, and ordered our food with me having the fish and chips and my company having the lamb burger and the grilled Halloumi we waited patiently for our food which took some time to come.  

The barman/waiter bought the food from upstairs, one plate at a time arrived at our table with a varying wait before he ran up to bring down the next one, which was almost farcical as he was also serving drinks in between serving us! 

The fish and especially the chips was great with mushy peas and a large well battered piece of fish and the lamb burger was alright according to my friend which is damming with very faint praise as not all was eaten, but the Halloumi was really wonderful according to my other friend.

All in all a pleasant meal, but nothing special, and woe betide you if you go and the place is busy, as with one person doing everything - bar work, waiting on - you may have even a longer wait than we did, which was long enough in an almost completely empty place.
