Covent Garden is for sure a London hot spot. Popular with locals and tourists alike – we thought, who better to ask than our very own Ruffians Covent Garden team on where the best places to eat, drink and shop are. Here’s what they had to say:
Rules – Food
Established in 1798 by Thomas Rule, Rules is the oldest restaurant in London. Serving traditional British food, specialising in traditional game cookery, oysters, pies and puddings.
Covent Garden Grind – Coffee
Covent Garden Grind is a coffee shop, cocktail bar and restaurant all rolled into one. Their mochas are to die for and their espresso martinis are even better.
Piazza – Entertainment
There is always something going on in Covent Garden’s piazza. Whether you want to watch the street performers or have a browse round the market – there is something for everyone in the heart of Covent Garden.
Diptique – Shopping
This luxury candle brand tucked away on Floral street is perfect for gift shopping or if you just want to treat yourself. From room sprays, to soaps, candles and fragrances. You’ll be in perfume heaven from the minute you walk in.
Ladurée – Afternoon Tea
The ultimate place for French macaroons and a variety of sweet treats. Great for if you’re feeling indulgent, the Parisian décor and endless choice of pastries will have you sorted for the rest of the afternoon.
