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.

    Have been really looking forward to our dinner, after receiving a [voucher] last Christmas. Was not disappointed at all, and was well worth the wait. Food and service was amazing. Lovely atmosphere, definitely be coming back!

    Fantastic food, the scotch egg starter was so delicious. Staff are friendly and attentive. Just one small gripe- £2.50 for a bottle of water??

    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!
