Owners Young’s have rammed the relaunched ‘Ham Ram’ with a jolly jumble of stuff: from nods to nearby music legends The Apollo and the (sadly, no more) Hammersmith Palais, to brightly painted upcycled junk. Brews from Beavertown, Brixton and Fourpure join Young’s beers at the bar; otherwise you can choose from a selection of Spritzes and uncomplicated cocktails – Whiskey Mac, Duppy Shadow (rum, Coke and ginger beer) – or wines from £15.50 a bottle. Waffles with bacon and maple syrup are part of a brunch menu served until 5pm; mains might include crayfish and lobster roll or Waldorf salad, with apple pie and custard or various milkshake and shot combos for afters. Alternatively, there’s a 1950s-style Burger Shack, as Young’s hitch a ride on the street-food bandwagon. Food and beer pairings, weekly quiz nights, showcases of up and coming talent, and a weekly open-mic ‘jam at The Ram’ are added draws.
