Situated on Spital Square next door to Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle, the modern bistrot Galvin HOP serves simple but innovative food in a relaxed and vibrant environment.

The Galvin HOP menu offers seasonally inspired dishes. Starters include tempura courgette flower with goat’s cheese, beetroot and pine nuts or breaded scallops with chorizo, celery and tarragon mayonnaise. For mains, choose from seasonal dishes such as lamb steak on the bone with peas, goat’s curd and Jersey royals or baked halibut with Kalamata olive, fregola and saffron aioli.

For dinner, HOP offers a selection of small and big plates such as chorizo croquette with saffron aioli, Joo Won’s Korean chicken or spicy glazed chicken with watermelon, cos lettuce, chilli and spring onions.

Copper tanks above the bar house unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell which is delivered fresh each week from Plzen, in The Czech Republic. The fridges are also stocked with a wide range of craft beers in cans from London breweries such as Truman’s and Beavertown. For wine lovers, HOP offers a cutting-edge wine system serving boutique wines on tap as well as a selection of red and white wines by the bottle.

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

    Bottomless prosecco deals are always a winner. Food was nice but nothing special, nice staff, lots of prosecco, lovely venue. Worth it for the deal but don't expect high end food.

    Great meal but unable to supply any French Dijon mustard to accompany meat dishes. Pretty basic request so surprised it was not available.

    The food was lovely, but the service was extremely slow ( our food order was taken very late!) We booked at 12.30pm and only finishing after 3.30pm
    I would absolutely go back there, but they must be faster on the food

    We really enjoyed our evening at Galvin Hop. we went for the set menu which is good value. My cauliflower soup was delicous; my partner had the. beetroot salad which he enjoyed (although he would have preferred a bit less leaves and more cheese!). We both had the cod main, supplemented by a couple of extra sides and it was delicous. For pud we had the lemon curd doughnut, which was very good (lemon curd tasted home made and was gorgeous).
    Staff were so friendly and helpful. Noise levels were fine in the restaurant; it was a bit loud in the bar when it was at its busiest, but what else can you expect? The music was mainly 80s and 90s pop, which was great. Toilets were clean and well stocked with loo paper and good quality soap etc. Music is piped into the toilets too so you can sing along (or is that just me!).
    If you're a real ale fan, this might not be the place for you. There's a Pilsner on tap and a small selection of bottled and canned beers (mostly 330ml). There's wine on tap and lots of spirits and some cocktails - even some shandies! Drink is on the pricey side, but on a par with the area.
    Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

    Had a lovely evening food was well presented. Chicken dish was so tasty. Good choice of desserts. Unpasteurised beer is good ( my husband says) good choice of wine.
    The atmosphere is great and staff very friendly and efficient.
    Definitely go back.

    We had a group of guests from Korea and booked this place last minute on the very day. Despite short notice, staff were very kind and food were great. I particularly liked the two ladies who mainly served us - one was from Basque region and the other was tall lady with dark hair who took an order from us. They were very friendly and our guests liked the place very much. Food was served timely in our view.
