The Forman family has been smoking fish since 1905, and their cured salmon can be found on all the best tables – including those inside their swanky new premises overlooking the Olympic Stadium. The dining room and bar have direct views of the sporting behemoth, although the menu tries to avoid jingoistic favouritism: instead it offers ‘excellent' foie-gras terrine with fig chutney, spice-crusted salmon, and ballottine of barn-reared chicken with air-dried ham as well as dishes such as warm smoked-eel fillets with Jersey Royals or golden syrup sponge pudding that would do Team GB proud. There are British drinks, too – from London-brewed craft beers to wines from Kentish vineyards. A lovely terrace overlooks the Hertford Union Canal, and Formans has raised its profile with a trendy new art gallery above its legendary smokehouse.
