Overlooking Covent Garden Piazza, the Cove is a world away from the crowds outside. Tucked up in a worn, leather armchair under the pub’s low, beamed ceiling you’ll feel like you might be relaxing in a country pub. And that’s exactly the idea: this Cornish theme pub wants to whisk you away to the depths of the South West. Importantly - as well as importing the décor - they seem to have created that authentic, stress-free ambience slap-bang in the middle of London.
Finding the pub can be a little tricky - you have to walk through the Cornish pasty shop below - but this has two advantages. It doesn’t get as crowded as other nearby watering holes and you can order up a hearty pasty from down below whenever you want.
The bar is stocked with all the usual fare, not to mention a fine wine list and an appetising selection of Cornish ales.
When the weather is fine, the balcony seating overlooking Covent Garden Piazza offers a great spot to people-watch from.
The Cove – as its name suggests - is a sheltered haven, a perfect place to unwind after a hectic day’s shopping in Covent Garden.
