This was our second visit for Sunday lunch. The food was excellent but the experience a little spoiled by two families dining with toddlers who allowed their children to run around, climbing on chairs at empty tables, pulling bark out of the planters, making a racket unchecked by their parents. The waiters were then distracted, having to shepherd the children and make sure they didn’t harm themselves or break anything.
We will return and recommend the food highly.
For fish lovers, cured or fresh, an ideal choice. The must have starter is a platter of cured salmon in a variety of ways, large enough for two share. The turbot which followed was cooked to perfection.
For carnivores some interesting dishes and to finish a voice of English favourites. The wine selection is British and ours was very good and inexpensive.
The menu is not long but there is sufficient selection to go back and not repeat your choices. It was a relatively quiet evening but the staff were attentive and caring. We were a party of four and all of us enjoyed the evening.
Excellent food and service on our visit. Will definately go again
All round wonderful, unique
The restaurant serves delicious smoked salmon, as you would expect and the starter was excellent. We ordered the halibut and the turbot which were very tasty but were not served hot enough to really enjoy them. The same was true of the mashed potatoes which were lukewarm. The chips, however, were hot and really good. Service was excellent.
The food was as expected - OK but the service was quite poor.
Excellent food, as always, and the vegan options have improved a lot. The smoked eel was a revelation, and the turbot as delicious as ever. The smoked salmon is, of course, reliably very good!
Small menu, but the food quality and service was superb.
If you like fish, this is the perfect restaurant for you.
The salmon is absolutely delicious!
Excellent food - excellent service - wonderful experience would definitely recommend
Great lunch, fantastic food in a lovely setting
Was very much looking forward to our meal with friends. The restaurant looked beautiful and we received a window seat as required. The starters were delicious, 3 having salmon, generous portions and beautifully presented. The main was disappointing as two required monkfish which looked lovely but couldn’t be cut, it was like rubber. The waiter did take them away but we overheard them saying that this wasn’t the first time that the monkfish had been returned due to the same reason. Shouldn’t happen twice. One diner didn’t really-order and one did with turkey which was delicious but as the other diners had finished it was not nice dining alone. The two meals and replacement weren’t charged, neither were the tea and coffees so there were no further problems. Don’t think we would rerun though.
Top value, quality of food as well as service - which was very good and faultless. We will return.👍😊😩
Excellent food and friendly service. We will be back!
The food is delicious, especially the speciality salmon. The service was great and the view over the canal is fun, especially after dark.
Very good, a little slow at first but best meal
It was our first visit to the restaurant and have to say it ticked all the boxes. Great food well prepared and presented and by very attentive staff. The restaurant has a really nice airy feel and felt comfortable and relaxed and great for conversation. We will be back without a doubt.
Great food and nice setting, staff were friendly and knowledgeable with a good sense of humour, will definitely go back.
I absolutely love Formans. It may be in the middle of nowhere but that's the treat. Went on Saturday night, service was attentive and courteous, food as ever was marvellous and the restaurant is so comfortable, spacious and elegant. It really is my favourite restaurant and worth a journey in from Kent.
Great ambiance. Delicious food served with care and talent.
My First visit to Foreman’s, service was of a high standard, fantastic wine selection, of UK wines waitress, was very helpful
Food was of a high quality too
Fabulous. Best smoked salmon in London.
Outstanding fish - especially the starter with a range of differently prepared salmons - and very friendly service
Lovely food and the service is always great. Different but extremely good wine menu, all English wines, superb.
Very tasty and fresh food. We had a very good evening at Forman's. Maybe a bit quiet and intimidating at start but the staff is very friendly.
Very nice place to go. The view of the stadium isn’t as good as it used to be but the restaurant itself still great. Lovely service with great food!
It's kind of in the middle of nowhere and not close to the tube, this certainly drives away a lot of potential customers coming from afar.
But if you're in East is a must try place - fish is to die for an reasonably priced.
Nice restaurant in out of the way location. Food good but could have been hotter. I know food shouldn’t be served piping hot for tasting reasons however all four of our mains were warm. Still tasty though. Unfortunately there were a couple of items we ordered were not available which was a shame. Staff very nice.
Great service, generous portions, good value for money!
My first time at Forman's - I had the pleasure of dining with my parents for a Sunday Lunch. The Portion sizes were excellent. And the food was so fresh. The Salmon was exceptional and I loved the large selection of English wines and local beers. This is a restaurant worthy of your attention.
Very good quality of food, the staff is very polite.
Two of my party were running late but the staff kept the kitchen open until they arrived.
That was great customer service!!
Fantastic food and service.
Would definitely recommend this exceptional restaurant, friendly staff and delicious food.
Loved it. Amazing food and lovely wine in a lovely environment. Service was attentive and friendly
Nice venue. Difficult to access restaurant for those with any disablement as there are a lot of stairs up to the restaurant.
Food was very good although a little expensive.
Choice on Sunday lunch menu was not that great.
Very hot in the restaurant as windows open defeated the air conditioning.
Outside on lower terrace was a bit shabby as sun blind was broken/missing.
View of Olympic Park has been lost since it was first built as there’s now a nondescript building on opposite side of river spoiling the view.
Great service from the staff and made to feel most welcome.
Very few customers (about 16), but maybe this was due to the very hot day or summer hols. I would imagine if this level of customers was the norm, it may struggle though.
I strongly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. The Food, Service and friendly of the staff made for a wonderful Lunch. The quality of food is outstanding. I shall definitely be returning.
Excellent food great service fantastic welcome brilliant staff looking forward to our next visit !!!
Friendly and helpful staff. Food was good except for steamed pudding which wasn't cooked. I should have complained but by then the wine and birthday cheer had taken their toll and I didnt want to end on a winge. I would recommend with some reservations.
Visited for Saturday brunch, received a warm and friendly welcome. Food was excellent and salmon delicious. Looking forward to visiting again.
