Smith's of Tower Bridge

Squaremeal Review of Smith's of Tower Bridge ?

‘Famous for fish’ & an Essex legend since 1958, Smith’s Brasserie is now peddling its piscine wares just a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge (spectacular views guaranteed). Like its elder sibling in Ongar, this outlet focuses on sustainable seafood, with a familiar, user-friendly menu that hauls in everything from sardines & scallops to salmon & skate. Lobsters & crabs also figure prominently, alongside plates of deep-fried calamari with garlic mayo, monkfish meunière, & halibut steak with brown butter & capers. Meat eaters & veggies have their say with the likes of roast rump of lamb or warm goats’ cheese on beetroot salad, while puds could feature Brit standbys such as Eton mess or Bakewell tart. Plenty of fish-friendly wines are on hand to seal the deal.

As usual, the visit was much enjoyed. This has to be one of the nicest restaurant experiences I know. The fish is always fresh and cooked properly. A varied and not unreasonably priced wine list. Service with a smile al in a wonderful space. I shall look forward to going next time and will continue to recommend to all of my friends. Impeccable.

Scott's aside, I struggle to think of a better fish restaurant in London but I have added ‘East’ in the review title just in case… The food is excellent and the service always friendly and efficient. I am a bit of a creature of habit where fish is concerned but can recommend the fish and chips and the dover sole, plain grilled. Prices are very reasonable and, as our local fish restaurant, we go quite frequently and have to have a bad meal. The only negative is, given that Smith's is on the river...

Had never been to a Smiths before, love most fish and shellfish and absolutely loved the food here. Atmosphere quiet but relaxed and service very good. Would recommend and would definitely visit again. Lovely location and views too.

For those of you local to Wapping and with long memories Smith’s is housed in the ill fated Smollensky’s – that means a view through a wide sweep of windows across the Thames to Tower Bridge and the Shard, hopefully it doesn’t mean it will suffer the same fate. The room has a spacious feel, with tables adequately separated so that noise is manageable and you don’t share the next table’s details of their day. Everything is clean and smart, if a little dark. It’s dominated, on entrance, by a wall...

    So one fine day, we decided to go to a restaurant a little off the beaten path in Wapping. Why Wapping you may ask? Surely there is nothing there except for lots of expensive houses at the centre of the warehouse conversion epidemic. To cater for these well to do urbanites who are relocating to this quieter and more hip suburb between the City and Canary Wharf, there are thankfully a couple of interesting restaurants, including a good Italian, Il Bordello. Hopefully, I will get around to writing a review about this sometime. In the meantime, we decided to visit Smith’s, a restaurant overlooking the Thames river...
