Had a very enjoyable birthday meal. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the food superb. The menu has an excellent selection which even caters for non-Italian cuisine eaters. Highly recommend the fiery Tuscan beef stew which is shown in the attached image. Will certainly visit again in the future.

Visited on a busy Saturday Evening. Food excellent (especially the spicy prawns and the squid). Great menu. Good choice of wine. Staff and service excellent. Good atmosphere (lots of chatter). Well priced for the quality on offer. Really good evening. Only thing not spot on was the size of the reception area (very small with only a couple of tables which were taken). This meant 5 - 10 minutes waiting to be taken to our table standing with drinks in hand trying not to block the bar, the entrance to the toilets or the door. I guess this wouldn't be a problem on less busy nights. Would recommend a visit especially if you like different small dishes (tapas).

Took my mum here for Mother's Day and it was definitely a hit! We got a table at 7pm (booked about 2 weeks in advance) and although we had to wait a little to be seated despite booking, once we were, the service was great. Our server was very accommodating and jovial. Amazing selection of vegetarian food (I may have gone a bit overboard and ordered 5 dishes for myself) but I'm glad I did. The total for 3 people was around £50, which with a cocktail and three soft drinks included, I think is pretty decent. Only negative is due to how popular it is, it was quite busy/rowdy in there, but some people like that!

I had not been to the Axe and Compass for many years but with friends saying how good it was we needed to find out for ourselves, so we visited one lunchtime. We received a warm welcome and were offered drinks straight away and given menus. There is a wide variety and the options are all reasonably priced. We opted for an all in lunch menu and this came surprisingly quickly and for the price was more than enough for us to eat - very good value for the price. This is a place we will return to and more than vindicates our friends thoughts on the food and atmosphere. It was great!
