Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

When it was displaced by the development of the Olympic Park, London’s oldest salmon smoker – established in the early 20th century to supply London’s Jewish community with Baltic salmon – moved to a prime site just across the Lea Navigation from the Olympic Stadium. The snazzy new premises incorporated a restaurant and bar as well as the corporate headquarters and a spacious smokery with viewing gallery.

Forman's salmon obviously features prominently on the menu, in a salmon and crab salad with fennel and apple, or served with buckwheat blinis. Elsewhere it's modern-British cooking – think poached turbot with scallops, clams, baby carrots and chorizo froth, or pepper-encrusted rump of lamb with bubble and squeak and a port reduction. Desserts include a banana and cream tart.

The wine list features a range of English bottles, from Three Choirs, Chapel Down, Bacchus, Denbies and Biddenden. There's a short cocktail list, too.
