Michelin-starred London chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin recognise the importance of local and fresh food, which is why their restaurant, Galvin, uses homegrown produce from independent farmers throughout the UK. Each dish is based on traditional English fare, but with a Galvin twist. You might find a linguini, brown shrimp, coriander, and chilli dish or a terrine of Lincolnshire rabbit, goat's cheese, elderflower, and hazelnut. The menu also includes afternoon tea, a British staple. The Galvin brothers design their cuisine with seasonal ingredients and flavour in mind. A cup of tea here is a glimpse into Britain's local food movement, a taste of British culture and an escape from the hustle and bustle of London.
