We came along on Friday the 24th March and simply walked into the restaurant in the hope we could find a table for the six of us, and alas we found a six person private room - perfect. The staff who looked after us were truly superb with clarity as to each of the options for each course. On completion... More

Come here every time we are in London . It's lovely. Nice to sit outside and have a glass of wine from a good wine list and enjoy the opera and entertainment. For me one of my favourite places to go in London. This time as very busy outside we had to eat inside but it was great food, good... More

What can I say about this establishment other than their cuisine is about average, at best and that their wine list lacks any depth or inspiration, ignoring the great wines that many countries, both in Europe as well as other locations around the world, produce. A venue that has taken full advantage of the location in which they are in... More

Very historic with the name resulting from port being transported along pipes from the cellar to the bar area, often resulting in them being partially blocked. Musical entertainment from young musicians from local shows playing operatic and musical show numbers is often staged in the courtyard of the inn. If you can prove it is the day of your birthday...

We ate here on Saturday night and had a lovely meal. We had two children with us and there was a good child's menu for them to choose from. All of the food ordered was great, enjoyed by all.

Ok, so we didn't actually eat here so can't comment on the food, but it did look nice. We stumbled across this little place while looking for somewhere to have a drink. there was some live entertainment going on and the place was buzzing, so we grabbed a table and had a lovely bottle of Shiraz and watched the world...

Description
The Crusting Pipe sits in a plum position at the heart of London's famous Covent Garden Market and just minutes away from Charing Cross, Embankment, Covent Garden and Leicester Square Underground stations. Customers seated in the outdoor terrace can often enjoy impromptu performances from local musicians and actors, while the indoor spaces with vaulted ceilings and lots of nooks and crannies, provide an atmospheric setting in which to enjoy the seasonal British classics on offer. Look out for the popular afternoon tea options, pre/post theatre menus and interesting range of wines.
