Restaurant description

Galvin Bistrot & Bar (former Galvin HOP) is inspired by the Galvin brothers’ passion for French bistrots and bars à vins.

Created by Chris and Jeff Galvin, the Galvin Bistrot & Bar menu is packed with carefully sourced ingredients, and champions great provenance. Modern classic dishes are created using a wood-fired oven and open grills, whilst the charcuterie counter serves artisanal cured meat with farmhouse cheeses.

Brewery-fresh Czech Pilsner is housed in copper tanks above the bar, whilst delicious cocktails are served alongside a cutting-edge wine system serving boutique and delicious wines on tap as well as a selection of wines by the bottle.

The laidback little sister of Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle set just next door, Galvin Bistrot & Bar in London is a 4-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    It was my birthday, we booked for 7pm and were shown straight to out table by a number of smiling, welcoming staff. On this occasion, a group of four young men were standing drinking nearby and I was beginning to worry they'd stay all night (I have a mild loss of hearing and bare floors, glass windows and large spaces plus loud conversations nearby are hellish!) and the waitress understood perfectly and moved us to a newly vacated alcove where we were very comfortable! We had booked the set menu but preferred the a la carte selections. The asparagus starter was divine and the trout! Crispiest skin, perfectly cooked fish, served with peas and pea sprouts I still dream about. The purple flowering brocolli we chose to go with it was beautiful. Highly recommendd: Service, hot, beautiful food and buzzy ambience. Perfect!
