Picture of Jam Circus, SE4 2BT

Historical version 1 of Jam Circus, SE4 2BT (view current version)

Pub/bar in Brockley, near Crofton Park Station. It's part of a small chain of pubs run by Antic.

Spacious front area with polished floorboards, mismatched chairs, couple of upright armchairs. Tables aren't large (but not too small - would be able to fit food and drinks for four people) and are spaced fairly widely. Full-length windows at the front which can be opened up in good weather. There's also a couple of cosier, dimmer areas at the back, plus a couple of table/bench things out the front on the pavement for the smokers.

Kake visited on a Monday lunchtime in February 2008. There were quite a few other customers but I had no trouble finding a table. It seems to be quite child-friendly in the sense that there's space for the kids to run around and nobody seems to mind. They also have a kids' menu, according to their website. There were in fact a couple of children there at the same time as me, taking advantage of the running-around space, but they weren't too noisy.

A 250ml bottle of James White organic pear juice was £2.50. They also have various booze on tap, including Stowford Press cider.

Not entirely sure what times food is served, but I have a "Monday sarnies" menu here which says sandwiches are served noon-3pm and are also available to take away. They're priced between £2.80 (peanut butter and jam, or cheddar and pickle) and £3.80 (smoked salmon, black pepper, and rocket). A "handful" of fries is an extra £1, and everything except the peanut butter sandwich is also available in a baguette for 30p more. The only non-sandwich option is butternut squash soup with bread (£3.70).

They have free wireless internet - ask at the bar for the password. It works fine (this update is being made from the Jam Circus itself). Live music on Sundays from 8pm, according to a board seen outside in February 2008.
