Jeff Galvin

Jeff joined The Savoy hotel as a young Commis before progressing to the role of Junior Sous Chef at Michelin-starred Capital Hotel. In 1994 he was appointed Sous Chef by Nico Ladenis at Chez Nico at 90 Park Lane and was part of the kitchen brigade that achieved the elusive third Michelin star. That experience led to his appointment of Head Chef at Marco Pierre White’s three Michelin-starred Oak Room. In May 2000 Marco appointed him as Executive Chef at L’Escargot, which held a Michelin star for five years. 

Jeff teamed up with his brother Chris in 2005 to open their first venture, the eponymous Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in Baker Street, to much critical acclaim. In May 2006, Chris and Jeff launched Galvin at Windows, on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane. The restaurant was awarded one Michelin star in 2010.

The acclaimed three rosette Galvin La Chapelle opened in 2009 and has had praise heaped upon it from the very beginning . Voted restaurant of the Year and gaining a Michelin star for Chef Patron Jeff Galvin only one year after it opened. Situated next-door to Galvin La Chapelle, Galvin Café a Vin is a smart but friendly and relaxed two Rosette restaurant which was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2011.

March 2012 brought yet another restaurant opening, this time in the world famous food halls of Harrods; Galvin Demoiselle . Autumn 2012 marked the first ever venture outside of London for the Galvin family, opening two restaurants in Edinburgh;  The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe in The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

In 2013 Jeff was awarded the prestigious Master of Culinary Arts (MCA).

The Galvin Pub Company was set up in 2014 when the brothers bought their first pub, The Green Man in Chelmsford. In January 2016 Galvin Café a Vin was re-launched as Galvin HOP – the first ‘pub deluxe’ from the Galvin brothers and the original site for The Galvin Pub Company.

In June 2016 Chris and Jeff Galvin stepped away for the first time from their trademark French-inspired menus – in favour of championing Britain’s delicious home grown produce – with the opening of Galvin at The Athenaeum. Located in the five-star Athenaeum Hotel & Residences in Mayfair. September 2016, Jeff opened Galvin at Centurion Club, located at the impressive Centurion Club in St Albans. In November 2016, the brothers reopened one of the oldest pubs in Essex: The Galvin Green Man.

Jeff has been a member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts since 2009.
