TEMPER COVENT GARDEN

temper Covent Garden is corn tacos, in-house butchered meats, day boat fish and barbecued meats served on flatbread. The flatbreads are 48 hour fermented with natural yeast and blackened in fire. We also sell the only Detroit style deep dish pizza in the UK. Almost everything we cook is in our wood fired oven slap bang in the middle of the restaurant, where you can sit and watch the chefs making your food or order cocktails from the central bar. We have a huge wine list, tap wine, tap spritz and tap negroni as well as a huge aperitivo and cocktail list.

Covent Garden is a great all day lunch location with outdoor seating – but the lights go low and the music gets turned up in the evening, and there is a downstairs area for larger parties and functions to misbehave.
