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.

Simple sharing platters are available in the bar. Make sure to take a peek into the smokery next door and the art gallery upstairs.
