The Crusting PipeLocations don't come much more impressive than that belonging to the oddly named Crusting Pipe, situated on the ground level of the famous Covent Garden market hall. With its Dickensian moniker it will come as no surprise to learn that the Crusting Pipe is a Victorian style venue, however you're more likely to find well turned out theatre goers at the tables than Fagin and Magwitch types. Light and airy, boasting a large outdoor seating area from which views of the market can be enjoyed along with your glass of wine from the vast list of good value Davy's house wines, or indeed your vintage port - after all it is the Crusting Pipe's speciality. An excellent range of traditional grill-style food is offered too, making the Crusting Pipe a pre-theatre favourite.
