26 Apr This local boozer was named ‘Best Pub In Essex’
Judges from the National Pub & Bar Awards have crowned the Galvin Green Man in Chelmsford as the county’s top local boozer. The pub was launched last November 2016, by Essex-born chef brothers, Chris & Jeff Galvin.
Commenting on the win, co-owner and Chef Patron, Chris Galvin, said: “We’re extremely pleased to have won such a prestigious award. It wouldn’t have been possible without such a fantastic team and all of our amazing customers who have supported us.”
The Galvin Green Man will now compete against five other county winners for the best in their region title, at the National Pub & Bar Awards grand final at BAFTA London, on Tuesday 23 May. On the night, the overall National Pub & Bar of the Year will also be announced, with 94 county winners in the running.
Set in 1.5 acres of riverside meadow amidst beautiful countryside with the river Chelmer running at the bottom of the gardens, the Galvin Green Man is one of the oldest pubs in Essex – dating back 700 years. The transformation was extensive, with interior and architectural renovation restoring the listed building to its former splendour with the addition of a stunning new main dining room with glass vaulted entrance sitting alongside the original pub.
