Galvin At Home

Each week our team will put together an incredible three-course menu that requires simple finishing at home. Place your order by midnight on Sunday for collection the following Saturday between 12pm and 4pm from our friendly team at the Galvin Green Man.

If you are a bit further afield then we are also offering nationwide delivery in England and Wales.

We take care of the heavy-lifting so you can enjoy a fuss-free restaurant-quality meal at home- we think you’ll need just 15 minutes in the kitchen. Each Galvin at Home box comes with simple finishing instructions and Jeff Galvin, Chef Patron at Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle in London creates video tutorials to show you step-by-step how simple the dishes are to finish at home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fresh, Seasonal, Daily

Born in Romford and brought up in Brentwood, our early inspiration and memories stem from beautiful Essex.

It was where we used to fish and scrump (the art of subtly swiping fruit from an allotment or an overhanging tree in someone’s garden). So this part of the world means everything to us – a place responsible for everything that has resulted since.

“We were born and raised in Essex, so when there was the opportunity of running and pub and restaurant in this part of the world, the answer was obvious. It’s one of the most exciting projects we’ve ever taken on.” Chris Galvin
