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.
Great food and decent prosecco. Quite loud as it was really busy but excellent value
A high quality lunch in an informal setting
Excellent food. Good value. Set menu particularly good value. Good service.
We have visited other Galvin resturants in London and they are excellent. Galvin HOP was a different experience. The food as expected was excellent, however the environment is awful. The noise level from the piped in music was so loud that we could not hold a conversation. Eventually we asked one of the waitresses to turn down the volume, which I am pleased to say they did. She did explain this was a "young person's pub" except there were no young people in the place!! I think the Galvin's do have a problem with the definition of a pub, which this definately is not, its a restaurant with loud music.
The snails were the redeeming feature in an otherwise average dining experience
