Davy's Crusting Pipe
27 The Market Covent Garden, Covent Garden
London WC2E 8RD
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.

A lovely venue, in the heart of Covent Garden, with live classical music in the courtyard outside. Food, wine and service all as you would expect from a wine bar and restaurant in the Davy’s chain. A definite place to take visitors from out of town.
Enjoyed the drinks and dessert, and also the lovely lady singing opera, thanks for a great time x
Whenever we visit London we come to the Crusting Pipe. We book on line in advance. Only once were we slightly disappointed but ever since that some years ago we cannot fault it. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Great food, great place, we will always visit when in London
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.
