Tony Fleming, the Executive Chef, has created a fantastic menu inspired by the best seasonal ingredients with dishes such as; Mussel and saffron soup, Pan fried calves liver with crispy pancetta, mousseline potato and onion gravy and Blackberry and apple jelly with cinnamon ice cream and calvados foam.
A weekly fixed price menu is available at lunchtime and for pre and post theatre supper – ideal for the restaurant’s location in Covent Garden, at the heart of Theatreland.
Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the restaurant’s Rotunda Bar offering a varied selection of wines by the glass and delicious cocktails. The tasty bar food is a treat in itself – potted shrimps with sourdough and Yorkshire pudding with mash and Old Spot sausages.

You ever have a brunch that's so good, and so filled with booze, that you can't really remember what happened because you are in a delirious food and drink coma where everything is made of rainbows and happy feelings and then you nap so hard right after that you kind of forget who you are when you wake up?

Some Yelpers and I went for their boozy brunch -- 3 course meal with unlimited prosecco. Axis did not disappoint.
