Featuring a monthly changing menu, our weekly brunch boasts a Craft Hops pop up bar and a sharing concept of market fresh dishes. With a DJ spinning feel good beats and the soon to be famous Axe House neighbourhood atmosphere.
The menu is divided into sharing platters that have a focus on the artisanal market offerings often found around London’s buzziest foodie areas. Think of the stalls at the famous Borough Market or at The Notting Hill Carnival, The infamous curry houses of Brick Lane and the chic eateries on the cobbles of Portobello Road. All are represented in some way, shape or form across the wide-ranging menu of small dishes.
The Market sharing platter of starters include crispy chicken tender bao buns, boneless chicken wings with a toasted lime and coconut yoghurt, fritto misto & vegetable tempura, and an Indian inspired paneer sizzler and sevi puri (chick peas with yoghurt & sweet tamarind chutney).
For mains, there are a choice of two platters: the first includes butter chicken with basmati rice & raita, a Tex Mex veggie pizza, scampi bits, and classic sea salt and black pepper axe chips along with mushy peas & tartare sauce. The second includes an 80’s classic, the chicken kiev, seafood tacos, pulled beef brisket with horseradish mash and ale gravy (dish of the day) all served with delicious sweet potato fries.
Any Brunch is onto a winner with us when they start the day with a bottle of vodka on your table. At first, we though that this was a gimmick, a decoration filled with water, but soon we knew they meant business when our waiter asked what mixers we would like, or whether we would like to exchange our vodka for gin, whisky or rum? An ingenious way to ensure that each table is “well-oiled” from the very beginning and also alleviates the pressure on the bar staff that is often felt at the outset of many brunches. Bravo.
Aside from the bottles on the table and regular spirits (including Jim Beam), tinned beers (Bud), Stoli Lemonades, Bloody Mary’s and various brunch specials including shots and “big boy beers” make their way to the tables throughout the day to add to the selection of red, white, rose and rose sparkling “plonk” (Lindemans’s). Drinks are placed strategically around the venue with wait staff moving between tables swiftly and regularly, keeping the buzz and pace of the brunch at 100 mph.
