The Crusting Pipe sits in a plum position at the heart of London 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. Inside the vaulted interior of the dining rooms and bar there are numerous nooks, crannies and semi private rooms which make perfect areas for dinners, meetings and events.

Delicious, fresh and seasonal food is served all day from breakfast to a-la-carte meals, simple bar snacks, tasty sandwiches and traditional afternoon tea. The wine list offers an extensive range of wines from Davy’s wine merchants, many of which are available by the glass.

    The restaurant is very cold. We didn’t go there in the really cold spell but it was still too cold. Staff really not that interested. Kept propping the outside door open to assist them. Food was ok. No alternative to Xmas menu. Will not be returning.

    I had this afternoon tea on a Thursday, it wasn't particularly busy, however , I waited over half an hour. The sandwiches were ok, the filling was better than the bread they were on which tasted dry as if it had been sat for quite a while. There was one scone with no fruit which had been toasted and was stone cold, so not toasted before the food came out - maybe it was to cover up it was also stale. The cakes also lacked imagination, 2 pieces of dry toffee cake and 2 chocolate brownies, which were probably the best thing on offer. I definitely wouldn't recommend trying this afternoon tea, my bill was just over £40 & I was left feeling more ripped off than having had a treat. Sadly I think they are living off the location and not the quality of the food and there are far too many nice restaurants in London for me to choose to visit this one again
