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

Came here on a Sunday and it was a really well decorated place. Food was excellent, atmosphere relaxed and service friendly. Came with a 3 year old so was pleased he could watch the boats out of the window. Loved the sponge pudding in the...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!

What a great restaurant, with exceptional service and food. British wine list - the best I have ever seen. Loads of Salmon options (this is the famous Forman's Salmon smokery) but lots of options in meat and fish.

Slightly out of the way but definitely worth the trip. Friendly attentive and professional service, salmon themed interior design, and seriously good food. The food and drink are entirely British and very thoughtfully done. A big thumbs up.

Not only are the surroundings incredible, the food is too. We started with their signature dish Salmon Plate, which is a taste of different raw, smoked and cured salmon, it was an incredible experience. I had the Hot Scottish Salmo which I loved, my fellows...More

Get off at Pudding Mill Lane on the DLR - that is much closer, then, just a few minutes.

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.
