Within the heart of the Essex countryside, Galvin Green Man welcomes you to its award winning restaurant and pub housed in a listed building dating back to 1341. This Bib Gourmand awarded restaurant is a testament to the team’s commitment to seasonality and local produce, reflecting the essence of the award: a friendly establishment that serves good food at moderate prices. The venue includes a full dining room, a dog friendly pub, a beautiful garden with a children’s play area, and bespoke private dining rooms. Be sure to enjoy al fresco dining on the outdoor terrace during the warmer months. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a date night, a delicious Sunday roast, or a celebration with the whole family, the Galvin Green Man is the place to be.
You’ll be incredibly pleased with starters like cappuccino of wild mushroom with poppy seed brioche, salt baked beetroot with quinoa, whipped goat's curd, and roasted hazelnuts, or the scotch egg with apple and fennel salad, parsley emulsion, and truffle crumb. Enjoy main dishes that include a pan seared wild sea bass with braised fennel, baby Lou potatoes, orange and saffron velouté, or the Great Waltham pheasant with puy lentils, celeriac purée, and smoked bacon jus. Finish off your meal with decadent desserts like vanilla creme brulee with pineapple and alphonso mango sorbet, or tonka and bourbon vanilla rice pudding with caramelised apples and dulce de leche.
On Sundays, start off with the whipped cod roe tartlet topped with herb crème fraîche and compressed cucumber, followed by the roast sirloin of Herefordshire beef with duck fat potatoes, chantenay carrots, savoy cabbage and a fluffy Yorkshire pudding.
