about-us

About Us

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 palate. 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.

All of our seafood comes from sustainable sources ensuring that the fish you receive is of the highest quality. We work with small fishing communities with much of our seafood caught on a day boats and delivered daily.

Our master fishmongers then expertly prepare the fish onsite. For these reasons we are confident that the fish you receive is of the highest quality available.

If you haven’t visited one of our restaurants already then call us to book and join the Smith’s experience.

Due to market prices and availability of fresh fish, some prices may periodically fluctuate.

We look forward to seeing you…
