A visit with the wife on a recent Saturday afternoon for a pint and a late brunch.

Busy with the back of the bar resembling a kids party / club, the noise was pretty loud but it was more sedate at the front where it mainly all adults, music played softly.

3 ales and a cider on the hand pumps, my pint of Brockley Pale Ale was decent, I cannot remember the other choices of ale. The food was good and served promptly, good value for money also.

Its been a couple of years since I've even popped I here for a drink, but this was a refreshing visit and there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be using this place as it’s so close to home, though the Beer Dispensary does have a more adult feel to it.

Despite the silly name this is a good if non-traditional pub with several real ales, lovely staff and good food. The South (of London) will rise again, as they say. Going on current evidence it already has.

My first visit since it's re-opened was 2 quick beers with a mate last Tuesday.

I was surprised to see that there were 6 really good ales on the hand pumps which have increased from 3 to 6. It seems like they have taken a much better view of real ales and especially of local breweries.

My 2 pints of Porter from Brockley Brewery were excellent. As well as the ales there were the usual suspects of Guinness and Lager with Laguintas IPA also on tap.

I always liked the Jam Circus but before it closed due to the fire it seemed to be going down the Mother and Baby route too much, maybe it's still like that during the day (the jars of sweets & home made cakes suggest that), but on the evening I visited there were no kids to be seen!

Cracking little place again and with the addition of more ales on tap I'll be back to being a regular.

We thought we would try Jam Circus last weekend as there's been a lot of excitement locally about it reopening. There was a good selection of beers and the place is quite funky in a tatty second hand junk shop chic kind of way. We had a nice pint of beer then it all went a bit wrong...I bought a round then upon returning to my seat noticed black specks all round the top of my glass. I took my beer back to the bar and the barmaid apologised and poured me a fresh pint. I checked my new pint of beer before leaving the bar only to discover it too had black matter over the glass. When I pointed this out to her she asked me if I minded if she poured the beer into another glass! I had no idea what this stuff on/in the glass was and had no wish to consume it so I politely said no and asked for a fresh pint. At this stage I was made to feel like I was a massive pain the in backside that she was doing a favour for as she poured me a very short pint. This was becoming hard work, I asked her to fill my glass and she sneered at me. Imagine the cheek of me wanting a full pint in a clean glass! This was the last drink we had in Jam Circus I can't see us going there again

Sadly closed at present due to a fire just before xmas.

Not as good as it used to be but still a better place for a pint and chat than the Brockley's got more about it!

Always at least 1 ale on sometime 2 and these can vary with usually Ubu or Brakespears being the main choices.

Decent benches out front for the warmer days and nights but this place is slap bang on the main road.

Let's hope it re-opens soon.
