The  Staff Canteen
This January, Michelin starred Galvin Restaurants will start 2016 with the launch of HOP, a Galvin Pub de Luxe on what is currently the site of Galvin Café A Vin in Spitalfields Market. The menu at HOP will feature pub dishes made CZwfbfOW0AAnCr8with seasonal ingredients cooked using a mixture of classic and modern techniques. Designed by brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, the menu will include meat and fish from their award-winning suppliers with dishes such as slow cooked beef cheeks in stout & caramelised carrots, Galvin cured smoked salmon with soda bread, charred beetroot and goats curd salad, rarebread sausage rolls, grilled Suffolk pork and cider braised onions, flatbread with tuna and smoked aubergine, spatchcocked Cotswald chicken and green clementine trifle.

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’. Visually, the most striking difference within the space will be four large copper tanks containing unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell, three of which will be positioned above the bar. Pilsner Urquell will be delivering fresh unpasteurised Tank Beer from the brewery in the Czech Republic weekly. Each tank will be opened in turn, providing the freshest pint.CZtnWUlWIAAonmq HOP will also offer several different bottled and canned craft beers, as well as a boutique selection of wines on tap installed, supplied and maintained by OW Loeb & Co.
