Galvin Green Man Review

On a cold Tuesday, in the depths of February. A glimmer of sumptuous dining beckoned for Your community Hub, in the form of an invite to the Galvin Green Man, Howe Street, Chelmsford. In the interests of bringing you the best in Chelmsfords Culinary Cuisine, what could we do but accept?

We were met and hosted for the evening by Emile, Chloe and Charlie, nothing was too much trouble and they were exceptionally attentive hosts.

Prior to being seated, we had a look around one of Chelmsfords newer dining establishments and the beautifully appointed private dining rooms for up to 12 guests. These rooms have been decorated in collaboration with four different Essex and Suffolk businesses. Amongst the other dining options in these lovely rooms they also offer you the chance to host your own roast, they cook you take all the credit!

From the eclectic menu we ordered, sautéed Wild Mushrooms on Brioche, Galvin Cure Smoked Salmon, Fennell and Avacado, Lamb curry and the Duck. All of the food was cooked to perfection, lovingly seasoned and the meat was tender and melt in the mouth. All of this was wonderfully accompanied by the excellent wine and service.


We went on a Tuesday, and although not the most popular day of the week to venture from our cosy firesides, the lull of the even cosier fireside at the Galvin Green Man and their delightful ambience, should be enough to tempt anyone on any night of the week.

The Galvin is proud of where it is situated and keen to make it an enjoyable experience for families from the locality and beyond. They are presently planning a play area for the youngsters to enjoy through the summer.


It is looking like sunny skies and fine dining for the year to come, from an establishment steeped in history, and managed by a team passionate about good food and and excellent dining experience.
