Crusting Pipe in Covent Garden is situated in a vaulted gallery and courtyard in the piazza of Covent Garden Market, close to the Royal Opera House. It’s the perfect place to enjoy an a la carte meal and a glass of fine wine before the show. That said, this prime location offers easy access to any number of London’s west end theatres, so why not book a 2- or 3-course pre-theatre meal during the week. You can even take in live classical music and opera on site, seven days a week. Early booking is advised at Crusting Pipe Wine Bar in Covent Garden.

Warm atmosphere, good food, good service and good value. A pleasant haven in the chaos of Covent Garden on a wet and chilly Sunday afternoon
Great restaurant which I have used for years. Excellent pie and plenty of veg, Very good service by the staff. You must book on a Saturday as it was crowned
Great food, fine wine, super service, wonderful location. We 'six' enjoyed the benefit of a private room and had a very enjoyable, unhurried Christmas Lunch together.
Crusting Pipe is a wine bar that occupies a prime position for London’s lovers of music, theatre, and opera looking for some pre-theatre dining or an after show tipple. Crusting Pipe’s interior is all vaulted brick ceilings and rustic charm, crowded with curios but with plenty of elbow space in various nooks and crannies for an intimate rendezvous. Alternatively, soak up the charm of old Covent Garden Market, seated outdoors in the airy covered courtyard. This piazza is a beautiful spot to soak up live entertainment – both Covent Garden’s famed buskers and Crusting Pipe’s own selection of live chamber music and song – as well as delicious food and wine from Davy’s inimitable cellar selection.
A major drawcard at Crusting Pipe Wine Bar is the selection of aged steaks supplied exclusively by award-winning butcher Donald Russell, whose commitment to traditional techniques has earned him a Royal Warrant. Aged rump, fillet steaks, rib steak on the bone, and a grilled double Romney sale marsh lamb chop vie for your attention. Davy’s Classics offer another extensive list of must-try dishes, from the down-home Davy’s bangers and mash made a little luxurious with Madeira gravy, to their wild mushroom and courgette risotto with walnut pesto and handmade Harbourne blue goats’ cheese from Devonshire – all refreshing, renaissance takes on classic British cuisines right here at Crusting Pipe in London’s Covent Garden.
