SET in the midst of mature tree-lined walks, lawns and restored historic buildings at St Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter is one of Birmingham’s best dining and live entertainment venues – The Jam House.
Some of the city’s most fashionable restaurants and trendy bars are located in this area with its own elegant Georgian church located in its centre.
Stepping out of our taxi to be met by the cold Friday night air, we were ushered into the The Jam House by friendly staff, and were instantly exhilarated by the buzzing atmosphere.
The Jam House is set on elevated levels, as the dining area overlooks the bars and dance floor; and the menu offers a variety of tempting international dishes with two courses priced £25/three courses for £28.
Starting with bread and marinated olives, I opted for the croque champignon with roast mushroom, while my partner chose the soup of the day. Much impressed with his soup, my dining companion said he would not of minded if it had been served to him as a main dish as it proved to be that tasty.
For mains we selected the pan roast Scottish sirloin with café de Paris butter and thin-cut chips, and the breast of free-range chicken with potato rosti and wild mushroom sauce together with a side order of plum tomato and basil salad, a rocket and Parmesan salad and an extra portion of chips.
To finish we selected the blackberry crème brûlée with apple sorbet, and the traditional treacle tart with Cornish clotted cream ice cream, which all proved to be equally as delicious as our previous courses.
The Jam House is definitely for those who want to dine and dance the night away in an unforgettable, sophisticated and stylish environment.
