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.

    We had a lovely afternoon tea here on Thursday afternoon. Nice selection of cakes and sandwiches, although I would have preferred to have at least two scones each.
    When we asked for another pot of tea, we were actually given a pot of hot water with the same, used, teabag. When we pointed this out, it was rectified but almost as if it was our fault for not being clear enough (??)
    Great location in Covent Garden, lovely atmosphere.

    Fab setting and good food

    This restaurant is superb, both for location and also the food. The cod wrapped in pancetta served on crushed new potatoes was wonderful. We had a lovely waitress, who was happy to have a laugh with us, but didn't make too much of a fuss. Had a perfect evening in a beautiful setting.

    It was cold and noisy inside and the staff was nice but busy and we didn´t feel particulary attended to.

    We went there for afternoon tea on a short weekend trip to London. Absolutely amazing! The food in general and in particular the scones were fabulous. The service was great, reccomendable 100%.

    good time

    It's our 4th time dining here and certainly the last. Service was outwardly rude and challenged us on our orders, insisting we ordered items we didn't. His eye roll was far too obnoxious. The ceasar salad could fill a bird's stomach.
