5 things to do at The Jam Tree bar and restaurant, Clapham
Today 5 things to do today sample lunch menu at The Jam Tree bar and restaurant in Clapham.
Start with the classic gin and tonic. This comes in a huge glass. Made with Fever Tree tonic water, freshly squeezed lime and Bombay Sapphire gin. There are more elaborate drinks to try such as gin with thyme. However, this seemed suitably simple for lunch.
Move onto a main course of spiced duck breast. I ordered a house salad as a side which was brilliantly sweetly dressed. The duck perfectly cooked and just a bit pink which was totally inoffensive. I drank this with a glass of Malbec. The Jam Tree has an excellent range of wine by the glass.
Don’t forget to order some nibbles for the table. The sour bread was particularly good. Delicately toasted and served with good quality olive oil. Still going on the G&T!
The name of the bar ‘The Jam Tree’ intrigued me, so I had to try a drink with Jam in it. I didn’t want something massive so went for raspberry jam shot. This is simply jam shaken with vodka. The tiny jam jar arrived and was perhaps the most child-like flavoured shot I have ever tasted. Sometimes you forget how good jam is.
Now onto pudding. I was tempted by the chai pannacotta but went for the staple sticky toffee pudding. This, served with caramel ice cream and a walnut praline. The contrast in textures worked from the crunchy praline to the very smooth ice cream. The pudding itself was delicious and indulgent.
The Jam Tree bar and restaurant provide a relaxed space for some high quality (liken to fine dining food) and innovative drinks and cocktails. This is a place to come for after-work drinks a night of fine cocktails. If you want to enjoy the food, then pick a quiet time so you can enjoy the style, space and excellent service.
Why not finish your night (or lunch) which a photo in the booth.
