Right across the canal from our restaurant is the Olympic Park

Our restaurant has splendid views of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where you can watch the exciting beginning and final leg of Morrison’s Great Newham London Run 10K this weekend.

There are a host of events happening at the Olympic Park in July and August, gearing up for this year’s Rugby World Cup  in September. Visit our restaurant in the evening for one of the best views of the stadium, or take a look at some of the selections we made for the perfect Forman & Field delicacies to try during these events.

Morrison’s Great Newham London Run  –19 July 

Participants in this 10K run will head through the Olympic Park before finishing at the stadium. Cheer on family and friends as they cross the same finish line that Usain Bolt and Jessica Ennis-Hill once did, or eat and enjoy the scene from our restaurant. Entrants receive two spectator passes to the stadium, but anyone can enter the Olympic park.
