Joe Robertson, who has built more than 50 bars in Newcastle, Leeds, Cardiff and London, also conceived a number of exceptional concepts during the 80′s and 90′s. Each unit had its own conceptual approach and market segment.

Ram Jam

In 1995 Joe Robertson of Newcastle acquired premise in the Bigg Market Newcastle that had previously operated as a dry cleaning retail unit for many years.

In conjunction with the City of Newcastle who provided the liquor license from premises previously known as Portland Arms on New Bridge Street, Joe developed this property into the highly successful Ram Jam Inn.

This unit complemented Joe’s other property, City Vaults which was located in the basement and adjoining premises.
