The Crusting Pipe is one of Covent Gardens most original finds just minutes away from Charing Cross, Embankment, Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations. Customers who haven’t quite managed to get in to their favourite West End show can be transported there by listening to the amazing live operatic performances that regularly take place in our vast courtyard. 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 afternoon tea.  Our wine list offers an extensive range of wines from Davy’s wine merchants, many of which are available by the glass.


Food & Wine

Our Executive Chef Sean Davies sources fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients from a number of trusted local suppliers. All our wines are supplied by Davy’s wine merchants and selected by James Davy and the wine buying team.
