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.

    Hi, the food was excellent with a good choice of menu. The only thing was I was a bit cold! Don't know if it was because we were in line with the door, (would have given 5 stars) But overall a very nice restaurant. Would definately go again.

    Enjoyed the food & the excellent friendly service but object to the 12.5 service charge added to the bill! I tip accordingly as I find & do not want to be told the amount. This is rather off putting to several friends I know. But overall a pleasant evening.

    Super lunch - as good a 'traditional' Sunday lunch as I have ever eaten. took nearly two and a half hours to be served two courses. The place was extremely busy but it was clear that the serving staff were struggling. I would definitely return but maybe not for a weekend lunch service.
