I was initially surprised when we walked into The Jam Tree in Chelsea – I had passed by it every night on my way home to Putney and thought it was a bog standard pub, so never gave it another thought but decided to come along on a Sunday evening because it was Comedy night which was absolutely brilliant I must say. You walk in and it is decorated nicely with some interesting touches and an amazing beer garden at the back where they were serving up market BBQ – what I mean by that is you spend 13 pounds for a hamburger which ain't cheap any which way you look at it – really that is a bit cynical – but it is touted as 100% Angus beef (well, it better be after the horse met saga)…I mean in America everything is 100% Angus beef – it's like some sort of big selling point in England…my aunt had the chicken wings which were gooey in a very orange sauce and were alright – tasty and BBQ'ey…
The small glass of Spanish white wine was served in a very nice white wine glass that was too big for the serving so it looked mean at a fiver. Daughter Tatiana discovered the popcorn with truffle oil and parmesan which we ate three of, it was so good – it was addictive and a novelty…the two girls behind the bar were taking a very long time making extremely beautiful and exotic cocktails and putting their individual touch to them and I must admit they looked amazing BUT loads of people just wanting to order a beer or a glass of white were left waiting for up to ten minutes while the non-plussed bar girls cut up fruit, shredded ice and decorated the cocktails that were pricey but nice to look at. The manager needed a girl behind the bar whose sole job was to pump beer we thought because that was what a lot of people were waiting on…just two male waiters and one looked like the manager taking food orders – everything you ordered produced an immediate bill for some reason – there was no concept of paying at the end of the meal which is weird in a place that errs on the pricey side of pub-ville. Generally a fun evening due to the Comedy night going on and on a hot summer night we might sit in the garden in the back but our overall impression was it was a nice place but really badly managed – sorry…
