I really like the idea of this place and the food/drinks and staff are all great. But it is a bit out of the way and somewhat expensive, so better for a quiet drink, not a big night out.

I really like the atmosphere in here especially in the summer - sort of breezy and there always seems to be something going on, like a knitting group or french social group. I also like belgian beer so good to see at least one on tap usually.

I have only tried the chips so couldn't comment on the food really but if you're looking for somewhere near the station to pop in for a drink it's definitely a winner.

I found this place whilst looking for somewhere to eat whilst waiting for a train. It caught my eye with a chalk board, down side I had no idea what kind of place it was from that.
Inside it is very spacious and random seating, by that I mean very cool, trendy and academic. Truly different atmosphere fro some one who had never been to Oxford before.
The food menu was very good and I opted for a steak sandwich on rustic bread with skinny fries and a large cappuccino. Price was just over £10 and the food was very good indeed and served with home made mayo. i thought it was a good portion size for me.
Definitely go again

Had evening dinner here with my Son and Wife. Very good food, reasonable value and very good service. Good selection of drinks but a bit short on proper beer.

Just to say we had a very good lunch at the Jam Factory on Saturday. I had an excellent Kofta Kebab which was perfectly cooked.It was served with tatziki and houmous both of which were home made.My companion had a great steak sandwhich in very good bread.He asked for some mayonaise which again was home made and had a very subtle flavour of mustard.The service by Josh (?) was prompt and courteous and the meal appeared in a timely manner. All in all I would stronglly recommend a visit to this quirky but very good restaurant/bar/gallery.
