I have just discovered that this bar has closed (it appears to be a posh chocolate shop now). Bit of a sad loss - yes it was touristy and you can get the pasties anywhere nowadays, but there was something slightly quaint and individual about the old bar with its Cornish beers and the upper seating area overlooking the piazza.

Yet another pub bites the dust! Closed down as part of 'gentrifiication' of Covent Garden. Premises is to become an upmarket restaurant.

Was one of the better pubs in Covent Garden. Like a traditional pub, and never got too full of tourists. Was pricey though. 5 a pint. Served Proper Job, and Skinners ales, which seem hard to find in London.

Sorry, but I won't miss this place. Yes, it was a good outlet for Cornish beers such as St Austell and Skinners, but the praise stops there. It was ultimately a cramped tourist trap, selling expensive booze in the middle of Covent Garden. The West Cornall Pasty shop is no great loss either. The franchise is ubiquitous in London now.

Sad to relate that the Cove has GONE! Wandered past yesterday and the pasty shop that was below was completely stripped of everything. A woman who was inside the ex-pasty shop told me that the lease has expired and the pub had closed. Apparently this had happened fairly recently.

Despite the extortionate prices I will miss the Cove. The Skinners beers were always well-kept and the Proper Job on my last visit was good too.

Always manage to get a seat or at least a step to sit on, so a favourite in the area for this alone. Good beers, friendly staff, but recently 4.20 a pint. Bit steep.
