Galvin HOP








Michelin Starred Galvin brothers Chris and Jeff have transformed Galvin Cafe du vin in Spitalfield’s into their newest venture, sophisticated gastro pub, Galvin HOP.




The Vibes: 




Like any classic British pub, it is difficult not to want a pint on arrival when first greeted by Galvin HOP’s sweeping bar. But it is equally hard not to get hungry with a sneak peek at the menu! They do share chefs with their next door neighbours, La Chapelle, so expect the very best from the brother’s pub!




What we Ate:  




It certainly feels like the menu is designed to make you want to try a piece of everything, which is exactly what we did!





Start with Galvin’s cured smoked salmon, a classic done right!









Come for the gourmet hotdogs alone! This Frankfurt sausages made from a fine mix of beef and pork are topped with your favourite indulgent toppings and smothered with Maille seasonal black truffle mustard – a premium French mustard available to buy freshly filled in an earthenware pot and carefully sealed with a cork stopper at HOP.






The pan seared yellowfin tuna burger is similarly towered with slaw and our all-time-favourite – avocado.




Galvin HOP offer a wide selection of healthy sides including a rocket and pecorino salad, and the indulgent sautéed potatoes or gourmet chunky chips!








What We Drank: 




Though our lunch meeting was a sober affair, the pub pulls pints of cool Unpasteurised Tank Pilsner Urquell! 




We Recommend:  




The deluxe dogs are definitely the way to go at Galvin HOP! 





Our Thoughts:




Expect the same Galvin standard in the plate’s served at HOP. And with plans for further branches, this new City local, only a stone’s throw from Liverpool St Station, is perfect for a lunch meeting, after work drinks, or 2pm pint…why not!
