Very happy with food quality but the 2023 Christmas menu is terrible, very badly chosen options indeed! Quite pleased with service

This place is very authentic and has a wonderful atmosphere, with it being right in the center of covent Garden. I had the "Ardennes Pate", along with the "Crab & Prawn Linguine". The taste was fantastic and the entertainment superb. The food did take a long time to come but we were compensated with additional wine. There is a service charge added to the bill.

We typically visit the Crusting Pipe when we visit London. It's a great place to sit, people watch and enjoy the entertainment. We had a few snacks and a drink. Our server has worked there for 40 years and knows her stuff. We'll be back again next visit.
