Been twice in the last two months for a meal, and it was delicous. The staff serving are really friendly and helpful. We had our meal upstairs and I love how you can nip downstairs for a dance then come back up and sit and watch. Second visit was quite quiet, so it depends when you go whether it is going to be busy or not. They get great cabaret artists here, we have seen a few including Ben E King. Situated in the centre if the town so great to get a taxi home.

“Poor live entertainment”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Have visited previously and resident band were excellent. Was in Edinburgh and what a disappointment ! Live entertainment was dull! Not a good advertisement for a 'Wedding Band'. Would opt for somewhere else next time.

“Worst evening of live entertainment”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

I visited the Jam House on a living social deal and the food was lovely! However we were very disappointed with the entertainment and ambience of the venue, which was the main reason for visiting. I travelled all the way from London to have a night out with my boyfriend who lives near Edinburgh and had heard good things about it and the website said live entertainment started at 7.30pm and live band at 9.30pm. But when we went nothing started until 8pm and then between 9-10.15pm there was no live entertainment. Just recorded CD music playing which wasn't very good! We were told there was only a 7pm avialable, so was surprised and frustrated to see several tables available for the whole time we were there. Eating at 8 or 8.30pm would have been much better especially as we ended up sitting there for an hour with no entertainment. When the live band did start, it sounded terrible as they were doing sound checks and playing at the same time as the recorded music. When we left about 11pm the place was still very empty so not much of a live enterainment venue!

“Good night out”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

First time here and really enjoyed it. The food was very nice, wine started at £15 a bottle and the place had a good atmosphere. Wishbone Ash were playing, not my kind of music although I did enjoy the support act. Would definitely come again. If there was a band I wanted to see I'd book a table for a meal rather than just buy the concert ticket as it could work out better value.
