Situated on Spital Square next door to Michelin-starred Galvin La Chapelle, Galvin HOP serves simple but innovative food in a relaxed and vibrant environment.

We've gave HOP a little facelift this summer and the interiors are now brighter and funkier than before. It’s a more relaxed environment with colourful chairs surrounding light wooden tables.

The menu has also evolved and the new HOP offers seasonally inspired dishes in A la carte format for lunch. Starters include tempura courgette flower with goat’s cheese, beetroot and pine nuts or breaded scallops with chorizo, celery and tarragon mayonnaise. For mains, choose from seasonal dishes such as lamb steak on the bone with peas, goat’s curd and Jersey royals or baked halibut with Kalamata olive, fregola and saffron aioli.

For dinner, HOP offers a selection of small and big plates such as chorizo croquette with saffron aioli, Joo Won’s Korean chicken or spicy glazed chicken with watermelon, cos lettuce, chilli and spring onions - perfect for sharing with colleagues after work, or with family and friends at the weekend when visiting Spitalfields Market or Brick Lane.

The daily changing menus are crafted with seasonal and local ingredients: from fresh fruits and vegetables picked at New Covent Garden Market in the morning, to fish and seafood caught by one of the most sustainable suppliers in London and delivered fresh to our doors.

Copper tanks above the bar house unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell which is delivered fresh each week from Plzen, in The Czech Republic. Bar staff have been specially trained in the correct way to both treat and store this world-famous lager and HOP is the nearest way to experience Pilsner Urquell straight from the brewery.

The fridges are also stocked with a wide range of craft beers in cans from London breweries such as Truman’s and Beavertown. For wine lovers, HOP offers a cutting-edge wine system serving boutique wines on tap as well as a selection of red and white wines by the bottle. La Chapelle’s extensive wine list is available too for extra special occasions.
