About
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.

Really nice salmon and fish platter. The best are the fish finger sliders. The Angus beef burger sliders are also very tasty. The food is a bit pricey.

We attended the Forman's Salmon and Hush Heath English Wines tasting event, and had an amazing day. It was informative, tasty and entertaining. Headlining English produce it was refreshing and inspiring. Would definitely recommend, and would definitely go again.

You would need to have it tied up outside I am afraid. But we do have a private outside space on our riverside.
