In the vibrant centre of the old Covent Garden Market, Crusting Pipe Wine Bar presents a full grill menu of wholesome and hearty British dishes. A cellar-style wine bar, Crusting Pipe has outdoor seating, and serves vintage Port and fine wines.

Live performances of classical music, opera and dance take place in the Covent Garden courtyard throughout the year. Rustic and welcoming, Crusting Pipe has a sense of theatre and traditional English charm.

Showcasing a predominantly British menu, Crusting Pipe London has signature dishes like bangers and mash with Madeira and onion gravy, pan-fried cod wrapped in pancetta, and wild mushroom risotto with Portobello mushroom. The dessert menu boasts sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and Roddas Cornish clotted cream. There is even an impressive range of speciality cheeses such as Stinking Bishop.

A cosy candlelit restaurant, Crusting Pipe Wine Bar is just a 2-minute stroll from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Love eating here, especially on a special occasion like a theatre visit. The old alcoves which only have 3 tables in each, mean that you can have a quiet conversation and although they can seat lots of people, it never feels too crowded. The food served is excellent, I had the steak and kidney pie with onion gravy and the pastry just melted in the mouth. As for desserts, you have to try their apple and mixed berry crumble, the flavours are divine.

    The venue is great, music outside, cosy and intimate inside.
    The staff were lovely but the service was a little erratic. The quality of the food was average

    Great venue and service. I had booked originally for 6 but only 4 of my party were able to attend. The restaurant were fine with that. We had our own private dining area. Service was good. Only slight downside is that our wine arrived after our starter did and it was a bit cool in temperature. But other than that food excellent and ambiance great.

    My wife and I took our son, daughter in law and grandchildren to a matinee at the Duchess Theatre, near to Covent Garden. I searched online and found The Crusting Pipe would hopefully be a good choice. I knew they would be busy over this Christmas period and sent our menu choices to them a couple of days before our visit as we didn't want the Christmas fare. Nice and friendly. Food excellent ( apart from warm only potato on one meal) value for money and would certainly go again.

    I come back to this restaurant again and again with friends. The location and atmosphere are always vibrant - no matter what time of year you come; the staff are attentive and friendly, and the food (particularly the steaks) is always top notch.

    We had a delicious meal in a quiet corner of this busy pub. Service was prompt and courteous and my friends enjoyed their visit. Well done Crusting Pipe, I'll be back!
