Cuisine: A La Carte, British, Contemporary
Price Point: Mains from £15-£35

Galvin is the jewel in the crown that is The Athenaeum. Headed by the esteemed Galvin brothers, enjoy their unique take on classic British dishes.

Both Chris and Jeff Galvin are Michelin-star recipients so expect simple ingredients given the all-star treatment. And with such a grand name, 'tis only fitting that the restaurant follows suit. The enormous space boasts a sky-high ceiling, contemporary decor and casual but formal seating.

Begin with some starters that don't hold back on flavour. Innovation comes in the form of the Galvin cure smoked salmon that comes with beetroot pickled shallots while the beech-smoked chicken salad is complete with a mango and coriander dressing.

For mains, everyday ingredients are elevated to a whole new level. A delicate serving of Brixham plaice is complete with brown shrimps and croutons and the presa iberico pork is complemented by comforting polenta and a powerful salsa verde. Vegetarians will love the simple but delicious burrata agnolotti that's smothered in a deep and tangy tomato ragu.

Lovely restaurant and good ambience. Great service. The food was generally tasty and well cooked except the steak was slightly over-cooked. Overall a good dining experience

The service and food were good, if a little overpriced (if we'd paid full price). E.g. I wouldn't expect to pay extra for bread in a restaurant of this standard/ price. Atmosphere was a little lacking, as there weren't many people and the music selection was a a strange match. But overall, I'd go back with the First Table offer.

Beautiful restaurant with nice setting, cute decor and lovely service. Food was good.

My husband and I ordered 3 starters to share, the salmon, the sardine and the aubergine, all delicious. For mains, we had the lamb and the steak, lamb was cooked beautifully and with great flavours! Had a little bit of an issue with the steak as was a bit overcooked but the service was so great they changed it for us straight away and apologised with extra sides. Dessert was lovely as well - we had the walnut mousse with quince sorbet - sorbet was amazing!

All in all, a very positive experience! Worth giving it a try!

The meal was gorgeous and the staff were very good attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant was lovely but not too grand that you didn’t fell comfortable. Definitely plan to go back there. Superb toilets too!
