About Galvin Bistrot and Bar

When Galvin Hop first opened its doors, it was a pub de luxe serving up gourmet hot dogs and draught beers. Now it’s morphed from pub into Galvin Bistrot & Bar, the name previously associated with their now closed but much loved Marylebone restaurant, a bistrot de luxe where a Michelin star was matched by everyday prices and fans universally felt at one with the world.

They are hoping to recreate this in Spitalfields with a small bistro menu touting Alsatian tarte, soupe de poisson or steak tartare followed by fish of the day, entrecote steak or mushroom and pea linguini. To drink, there are still copper tanks above the bar which serve unpasteurised, fresh Pilsner Urquell, though wine is a more prominent feature, often from small producers in France, or there’s the more extensive list from la Chapelle for connoisseurs. The interior is a homage to French bistro culture with its bentwood chairs and leather banquettes, blackboards, mirrors and wine posters. The garden remains a hidden jewel.

Nothing can beat a classical French dish served with fresh ingredients in the middle of the City.

first Galvin disappointment in 4 years.
27 May 2016  
After the visit, few months ago at La Chapelle. I thought it was time to pay a visit to the “Pub” of the Galvin brothers, near Spitalfield market. Once you step in the “HOP” your attention goes at the Pub counter, where a big beer copper tank, hanging near the ceiling, gives a warm eastern pub feeling to the room. The waiter wearing a traditional “Czech Republic ” leather apron, greeted me and took me to the table, where I sat down for my dinner. READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW

I just like it. The service was not too quick this time but it's time away from my desk and in good company.
