The Jam Factory is a new independent bar on Widemarsh Street, Hereford. Offering a watering hole with good vibes and great music in the centre of town, the team cannot wait to open its doors. With up-and-coming DJs, live music, lip-smacking street food and drinks aplenty, everyone will be at home in The Jam Factory.

Nearly a century ago, a jam factory took up residence on Widemarsh Street for a number of years. The team have honoured this little nugget of Hereford history by redecorating and reimagining the beautiful Georgian building that housed “The Exchange” as The Jam Factory. They have created a fresh, modern, stylish bar where you can be sure to be welcomed with an “Oright!”

The Jam Factory have a schedule of varied events with a little something for everyone. They want to highlight the team’s mutual love of music, so you can expect well-curated playlists, regular appearances from local talents as well as visiting artists. They are already planning gigs, acoustic events, DJ nights and much more. Feel free to pop by and let the team know what you would like to see happening at The Jam Factory. They will always be on the lookout for new ideas.

You can expect a comprehensive and competitively priced drinks menu featuring great beers, wines and cocktails. Beers will include both draught and bottle options. The team are excited to serve an exclusive Jam Factory Tropical IPA on draught, brewed by the exceptional beer wizards at Ludlow Brewery.

The Jam Factory will be stocking local favourites on the spirit shelf alongside some exotic and unusual staff picks. A cracking list of sustainable wines include some stunning organic numbers. If cocktails are your jam (get it?… never mind) there will be an exciting tipple for you on the cocktail menu.

Each cocktail comes with a signature Jam Factory twist. Popping by in the day? Quality cakes and coffees will be readily available.

The Jam Factory is excited to host new street food pop-up Mariachi’s, serving delicious modern Mexican inspired plant-based grub. Grab a fresh burrito to go or share some nachos over that beer. Fresh, local ingredients and bold flavours are what Mariachi’s are all about and they cannot wait to see what they have in store.

In addition, The Jam Factory will be holding events, including bespoke food tastings. Stay tuned.

This is a passion project that he hopes all Herefordians can be proud of! Fundamental to the mission of The Jam Factory is the commitment to supporting Hereford communities. The Jam Factory team believe in creating opportunities and are committed to supporting exciting projects that can help them reach full potential.
