BigHospitality takes an exclusive First Look at Galvin HOP, the brand new pub concept from the Michelin-starred Galvin Brothers, which opens today in Spitalfields, London, following a soft launch period.

The pub is directly connected to the brothers’ Michelin-starred La Chapelle restaurant (which is also featured in our video) and directly replaces Café à Vin.

The brothers aim to open more pubs in the countryside having already purchased The Green Man in Chelmsford, and say that the flagship pub allows them to experiment.

“We were going to freshen up Café à Vin as it was; brilliant little business, but we thought why not have a flagship in London where we can test things and see how we go,” Jeff Galvin, the Michelin-starred chef patron of Galvin Restaurants, told BigHospitality.

The food offering will be different to what is on offer at the adjoining restaurant, but the brothers made a point of not lowering their standards.

“We always like to use the same standards as Michelin. We don’t do a café or a pub and put a second-rate set of chefs in it, it’s all the same people.

“We use the same discipline but it’s definitely much more accessible, good price points, good entry points for food and wine, but still with the same great flavours which I think will set us apart.”

For more on Galvin HOP, including news on future expansion plans, the aims of the pub, and how it fits in with the Galvin brand, watch the First Look video at the top of the page.
