They’ve been a mainstay of fine dining in London (and Edinburgh) for the past 10 years, but now the Galvin brothers are setting their sights on dishing up humbler repast with the foundation of a standalone pub company. Chef-restaurateurs Chris and Jeff Galvin, are currently on the hunt for further venues after the duo announced they would takeover the 14th century Green Man pub in Chelmsford, Essex, last month.
The pubs will come under the banner of the Galvin Pub Co – a standalone gastroboozer outfit based mostly in the home counties. However the Galvins have not yet announced how many sites they intend to acquire.
The food focus will be very much on the local producers and farms, complemented by cask ales and beers and a selection of wines. The brothers’ Galvin Restaurants group (founded in 2005) already boasts a portfolio of seven restaurants including Mayfair’s Galvin at Windows, Galvin La Chapelle by Spitalfields Market and Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in Baker Street.
