Join us for an afternoon filled with fun, exceptional food and stories from our 115 year old fish-story.

Smoked salmon is serious business at H. Forman & Son, the East End’s last smokehouse, founded by Harry Forman in Stepney in 1905 and run today by his great-grandson Lance Forman at Fish Island in Hackney Wick.  We are offering you the opportunity to enjoy a unique tour and salmon tasting at our famous smokehouse, including a fascinating carving demonstration. Purchase for yourself or as a GIFT VOUCHER and let your recipient choose their own date.  We will mail you a salmon themed voucher so you can delight your recipient with a gift experience they will not forget.

The tour begins with a talk by Lance Forman on the history of H. Forman & Son which goes back over a hundred years. Following on from this you will kit up in all the protective gear to descend into Forman’s famous London smokehouse where we will show you the process of producing the world’s finest smoked Scottish salmon including a smoked salmon carving demonstration on the factory floor by the Guinness World Record Holder, who previously won a carving competition against Gordon Ramsay. Afterwards, you will take a seat in Forman’s, the onsite riverside Restaurant and Bar which has an incredible view of the Olympic Stadium and a viewing gallery into the smokehouse. It is here where you will enjoy a smoked salmon tasting platter, accompanied by a bottle of still or sparkling water.  If there is an exhibition on at the time you will have a tour of the Forman’s Smokehouse art gallery, a spectacular contemporary art project space on the top floor of the Smokehouse.

At the end of your experience you will have the opportunity to purchase our delicious salmon to take home.
