This diminutive restaurant, with unrivalled views over the Olympic stadium, serves a fantastic variety of smoked salmon (the wild smoked salmon is exceptional), as well as an interesting range of dishes with ingredients sourced from within the British Isles. It also has a great selection of English wines and, unusually, spirits.

H Forman & Son has been curing fish here since 1905, and are notable for developing the much-celebrated London cure. Obliged to move to make way for the Olympic developments, they’re now housed in appropriately salmon-pink premises that contain their smokery, restaurant, bar and art gallery. Simple sharing platters are available in the bar. Make sure to take a peek into the smokery next door and the art gallery upstairs.
