Restaurant description

Galvin Green Man is a return to their home county for Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, and has won a prestigious Bib Gourmand and 2 AA Rosettes. Nestled in a riverside meadow setting, with the river Chelmer running at the bottom of the garden, Galvin Green Man is one of the oldest pubs in Essex.

The Galvin Green Man menu uses locally sourced ingredients to create seasonal dishes, while the bar serves craft ales from local brewers. Restoring this listed venue to its former glory, the stunning restaurant with glass-vaulted entrance sits alongside the original pub.

Children's menus are also served at Galvin Green Man in Chelmsford, making this a versatile pub for the whole family.

Filled with approachable pub charm and comfort like central fireplaces in the dining room or a very large garden in summer, Galvin Green Man is a 13-minute drive from central Chelmsford.

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

    The three course lunch was delicious from start to finish. I’m a regular to The Green Man and took an old friend for her first lunch there and she loved it and will be returning with her husband asap!

    Restaurant was lovely, good atmosphere, food was very good, on the pricey side but good quality and presented well. Service on this occasion was a little slow, however we were compensated with a free round of drinks. Will return.

    Very comfortable, pleasant friendly staff. Sam served us and was very attentive. The whole place was a little noisy. The food was excellent as were the range of drinks. It was a special occasion and I was pleased with our choice. The a la carte was excellent value, as was the set menu.
