Eatery or artery? Food or Art gallery?

Came here for post work drinks. Really enjoyed the vibe to this place. We all stood outside (a fairly large group) and had plenty of space to socialise. Staff were nice, drinks were well received, and location for us was ideal. It is so close to Oxford railway station.

This place is nice, but I wouldn't rave about it. If you are looking for some nice food in the centre of Oxford with fun interior and friendly staff, then this is the place. It's nothing particularly fancy, but a nice evening out.

Arrived at the venue, greeted with champagne, quite a small compact venue, which was quite nice with all of the artwork. Managed to get seated and although it looked quite cramped, it wasn't - not sure about the chairs though - quirky but bouncy! Food was nice, even though because we were the last table it was a bit cold... More

Had a lovely meal here on saturday evening enjoying delicious food and the waiters and waitresses were extremely lovely. I would definitely recommend their specials as they most certainly lived up to their name and it was great to go to support a brilliant local business, we will be back!

I chose the Jam Factory for the exhibition of the paintings. The stuff were excellent, helpful, smiling and making fun. For opening night, everything was ready and I was really pleased by that. Once again, thank you, all of YOU.

Came for breakfast with my friend and discovered the previous breakfast menu had changed (since i had last visited on 5th Jan 2015). We both ordered porridge and the sausage muffin. Both portions were embarassingly meagre. No extras with the porridge and a tiny muffin with a sausage patty were presented. Although the sausage muffin had a good taste it... More

Quick Breakfast: was well prepared, perhaps the muffin could have been "a little more interesting in taste" .........think they had bought in from the local Asda? Although the standard of coffee, was well above average. Keep thinking I was going to be given a membership form for the "Green Party" maybe Nicola Bennett is branching out .......with a cafe?
