A nice light and airy place, quite spacious and clean. Pleasant atmosphere, and they let you plug the laptop charger in which is always handy! The beer is expensive, though they do have special offers. My main grouch was there never seemed to be quite enough people serving, unless standing in a queue is supposed to be part of the... More

Surprisingly large premises, there's certainly lots to look at whilst you sit at your table as every wall and shelf is covered with drawings, paintings and craft-work (available to purchase I believe). Friendly staff and a very tempting menu, if a little on the expensive side; however there is free tea and coffee on offer as a bonus.

We visited here for our friends wedding. Overall the food was great, although the mashed potato was a little over-salted for my taste. The selection of drinks behind the bar was good and pretty reasonably priced.

Thank you to the staff at the cafe. Really good cappuccino - dogs enjoyed sitting in a corner and watching everything going on!

The wife and I visited here when out one night in Oxford. 🍻🍷 A fantastic selection of drinks. There's even a basket on a hoist above the bar, which you place a shoe in when you order a particular beer. (I'll let you discover that one for yourselves) It's a venue with plenty of character for sure. A must visit.... More

The venue is a hybrid between a hipsterish bar, cafe and restaurant, and managed to do it all without being over the top, too crowded or too loud. A good selection of beers, meals and snacks, and coffee. It's the type of place where you can order a pint of stout and a chocolate flapjack. It attracts younger audiences but... More

I pop into the Jam Factory occasionally when awaiting a train. It's got so much potential, but never seems to meet it. A huge range of keg beers, but only two handpumps of which only one is ever in service. Tonight, they pulled off the last pint, so we had to go for the keg stout, which was OK, but... More

I would actually rate this place 4.5 stars, but you can't do halves ;) Our family came here for a friend's wedding reception, and then came back for breakfast the next day :) The venue (for a reception or event) is very nice and flexible - it has a number of different areas which run together and the staff are...

Had a fantastic breakfast at the Jam Factory. Quirky and fun venue with a really cool vibe. Lovely staff - particularly Manon who went out of her way to be helpful. Thank you.
