by Dan Bryans
The National Pub & Bar Awards have crowned the Galvin Green Man, Howe St, as the region’s best pub, awarding the latest pub from the Essex-born chef brothers, Chris & Jeff Galvin, ‘the best pub in East of England’.
The recognition came at the annual National Pub & Bar Awards in London last night (23 May) following the Essex county award win in April.
Commenting on the win, co-owner and Chef Patron, Chris Galvin, said: “We are thrilled to be recognised as the best pub in the East of England, a fantastic achievement just six months after opening and a huge testament to our fantastic team at the Green Man.
“Opening in the pub last November was a passion project for myself and my brother Jeff. We grew up just down the road from the pub and wanted to come back to our roots and community and build something new and exciting. The pub itself dates back 700 years and we put our heart and soul into the renovation and design of the Green Man. We are proud to have put life back into the pub and are honoured to be recognised by these prestigious awards. The Green Man would not be the pub it is without our fantastic team and loyal customers. Jeff and I are enormously proud.”
