Whalley Range's Jam Street re-opened on Wednesday 17th September. The former Jam Street Café has had quite a makeover.
While the old incarnation never seemed to know if it was a café or a pub, the new version is very much a pub and almost unrecognisable. The former seating area at the front of the pub remains a seating area but totally refurnished with much brighter décor. Blackboards painted on the walls were blank on opening night but will soon announce their menu and events. Beyond the seating area, the bar runs down the side of the building through what was the kitchen with more seating in a previously hidden area beyond.
The snug space downstairs which used to struggle to seat half a dozen has been opened up to give a small function space while opposite the bar, a new staircase runs to the first
floor where as well as the ladies toilets there is also an additional seating and dining area. The terrace to the front remains although like the rest of the pub it's had a makeover.
On the bar there are four handpumps. On opening night only two were operational with two beers from Thwaites - Wainwright and Lancaster Bomber. Two turned around clips were a beer from Allgates & Butcombe Bitter.
