The Crusting Pipe hosted our company's Christmas Dinner Party in the Scotch Whiskey Vault. The restaurant/bar was very busy but with a good and lively atmosphere. The food was also very good, and overall the venue is an affordable, decent choice. Also, the pre-order and arrangements were all made through Sam & Evie, and they were both friendly and very helpful. Good effort as well with providing Christmas crackers and a table setting.
We felt the room was too small for a party of 20. One waiter only was not sufficient for our table as well. We were also disappointed that our pre-orders were not tracked, since we were told the kitchen will have the names of who chose what, and the waiters would just call by the person name. That was not what happened, which created a bit of havoc since the pre-orders were done a while ago. We were initially pleased that gluten-free bread rolls were available, however on the day no bread of any kind was provided.
