    3.8 Booked Garden Cellar for Christmas Dinner event for 9 guests

    Absolutely lovely pub! Good atmosphere and lots of little nooks to have a quiet and cosy glass of wine.

    Service was quite slow.

    4.2 Booked Garden Cellar for Christmas Dinner event for 14 guests

    The staff were lovely and accommodating to us.
    Loved our quirky cellar area for our group of 16.
    Great location, never knew it was there, and so big

    The quality of the food was what I was anticipating from pub food in your average London pub.
    If going while it is decorated for Christmas, just to note that the sign is partially obscured by their decorations, I lost some of my team and had to go out and find them because they were unable to see the sign

    Great room. Really nice. Just what we needed. Also, being a hot day, the venue switched to a better room with a fan. Ordered a platter to nibble while the meeting ran. Good quality.

    Teas and coffees are a little pricey, but heck, it's Covent Garden Market so it's probably fine.

    4 Booked Market Cellar for Baby Shower event for 22 guests

    Some of the staff were super helpful and friendly and could not do enough to help. Unfortunately we did not get names to identify anyone specifically.

    Whilst some of the staff were really friendly there some that were very rude and abrupt.
    My main issue was the afternoon tea for my sister who was pregnant. We ordered two vegetarian, one pescetarian and one suitable for pregnancy.
    The waitress originally brought out a vegan afternoon tea and we explained that we didn't have anyone vegan so after arguing with her she reluctantly took it back to the kitchen. She brought out the two vegetarian and one pescetarian afternoon teas as ordered. She then brought the vegan afternoon tea and insisted that this was for my sister. It seems obvious to me that a mistake was made but rather than accepting they had been in error they continued to push their mistake on us. In the end we did not want to ruin our day due to their poor customer service so we shared our afternoon teas with my sister, who's baby shower it was too.

    Brilliant meeting venue in the heart of Covent Garden if you want something a bit different, we loved the venue and the sandwich buffet lunch was delicious. Everyone was super helpful and I would definitely go back for afternoon tea. Thankyou for making our day.

    I would like to say a BIG THANKS to all the very friendly staff of the Crusting Pipe. We had such a lovely time celebrating a friend Baby Shower and enjoy every minute of it. The afternoon tea was amazing and all my guests were very impressed with the place, food and mostly the fabulous customer service.
    Looking in a future to book again as the whole process from the enquire, reservation and the whole afternoon tea was hassle free.
    Many Thanks again!
    Keep doing such a great job.

    3.8 Booked The Courtyard for Private Party event for 40 guests

    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.
