Galvin Restaurants is to open a new flagship pub on the site of what is currently Galvin Café A Vin in Spitalfields Market in London.
The newly rebranded venue, which will be called HOP, a Galvin Pub de Luxe, will open in January 2016.
It will become the flagship London pub for the recently created Galvin Pub Co. The news of the launch of the pub firm emerged after chef-restaurateurs Chris and Jeff Galvin (pictured) announced that they were buying the Green Man in Chelmsford, Essex, which will become their second pub when it opens in summer 2016.
HOP will offer fresh, unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell tank beer (with beer delivered from the Czech Republic weekly), a range of craft beers, a new menu featuring classic pub dishes and a range of premium hot dogs.
The menu will also feature pub dishes such as slow-cooked beef cheeks in stout & caramelised carrots, Galvin-cured smoked salmon with soda bread, charred beetroot and goat's curd salad, rarebreed sausage rolls, grilled Suffolk pork & cider braised onions, and flatbread with tuna & smoked aubergine.
HOP will also introduce the Luxe Dog, a range of gourmet hot dogs available to eat in or take away with Maille's premium, seasonal mustard served fresh from the pump. Breakfast items, including egg & bacon rolls, toasted muffins and Eccles cakes, will also be available to go.
The look of the venue will also change, with new flooring and tiled walls being installed. The kitchen will be semi-open and a front terrace will allow for outside seating.
The rebrand and refurbishment will also see the installation of a brand new kitchen, which will serve as the development kitchen for all Galvin sites.
