Got the recommendation from a colleague who works in London (we live in CH). The outside is a bit scary as the warehouse / industrial area is not that easy on the eyes... BUT once you are inside it is brilliant. Decor, music and atmosphere...More

Four of us came for dinner and were well pleased with our choice. The surrounding streets are a tad daunting as virtually everything stationary is covered in graffiti but persevere and you’ll get good food overlooking the River Lee. The restaurant still has a smokehouse...More

As others have said the restaurant is a bit out of the way but worth it. The restaurant has been decorated to a high standard and there's a viewing gallery where you can look into the smoke house where they cure the salmon. The service...More

The food was amazing, the service was top quality - difficult to get to but that doesn't really matter. Looked around the smokery area afterwards and there was an art gallery above it!

Formans' restaurant is based in the smokehouse of H.Forman & Son, the world's oldest salmon smokers. As well as having a viewing gallery into the smokehouse - a la Willy Wonka - the views out of the restaurant window to the Olympic Park are unrivalled. The food is the finest quality British gastronomy served in an informal setting. The wine list is exclusively English and all-British spirits are served from the bar. Forman's Restaurant has a delightful terrace and outdoor riverside lounge as well as a spectacular 1000sq ft art gallery which can be hired for private events.
