Priding ourselves on our motto ‘Famous for fish’ Smiths Restaurants is a name that has become synonymous with fine dining and quality, attentive service. Our restaurants are located in Ongar Essex (just off the A414) and Wapping in central London (near Tower Bridge). Both restaurants boast an extensive menu of fresh fish that we offer to cook in a variety of ways to suit every palette. We also offer locally sourced meat dishes to accommodate those who prefer their food terra firma. To compliment the quality of our food we have worked closely with well renowned independent wine merchants to ensure we have a selection of wines that are the perfect accompaniment to every meal. The only problem you may have a Smith’s is being spoilt for choice.

    Birthday lunch for 6 of us, & I can’t say anything other than everything was utterly fabulous. The restaurant, the food & the staff were exemplary. Lovely that the tables weren’t overcrowded, therefore the noise levels were perfect. Happens so often in restaurants nowadays. Do nt change a thing!

    There was a worm in my food. Great service but nothing can make up for the worm. I left hungry and disappointed.

    Service was excellent. Food good quality and tasty. Ordered from set menu, which is good value and prefer a smaller portion size, I dined on a Tuesday lunch time and it's a popular venue! Would return.
