Description: Jam Jar is a contemporary food and drink space situated in the heart of Jesmond. The menu specialises in Anglo-american comfort food with the odd exception, all served in a relaxed and laid back environment. Towards the evening expect to hear the likes of Jurassic 5 to dire straights whilst supping the finest in craft ales the region has to offer.

I love my cocktails so after some one recommending Jam Jar to me I decided to look it up on the internet. Read the reviews was not really wanting a burger but decided to give it a shot any way. Took my husband, son, his girlfriend and my best friend. The cocktail List was not huge but the ones we had were lovely, very tasty and that nibble of jam occasionally was a treat.
I had the pulled pork burger which was lovely but after taking a bite out of my husbands burger ohh how I regretted my choice IT WAS DELICIOUS. My son was in heaven he had the pulled pork and burger and said it was the best burger he had ever had and we've had a lot!

It will definenly be the place to go for us in Newcastle when we fancy a burger in the future.
Well done !

Jam Jar was great!
You can pick what type of drink you would like- vodka, whisky, rum and they make you a cocktail and pop it in a jam jar for you to drink basically!
For a fiver it was great and the place had a nice atmosphere.
I would definitely go again

We had a fables meal at Jam Jar last week and loved everything about it! The restaurant had a really great, young, friendly vibe. I loved the layout and decor. The food was delicious, we tried the cow vs pig burger and the chicken with sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious, the beers great and the staff friendly! We will definitely be back!
