Featured Hackney Wick Restaurants
1. Crate Brewery and Pizzeria Pizza restaurant in Hackney Wick 7, The White Building, Queens Yard - E9
Chilled microbrewery haunt across the canal from the Olympic Park (near Hackney Wick Station) whose waterside terrace is a big plus in summer. The pizza and brews are fair value, and it has a lovely, hip vibe… meaning, though, that it gets busy and service can at times be swamped.
2. Cornerstone Fish & seafood restaurant in Hackney Wick 3 Prince Edward Road - E9
“Tom Brown is a genius with fish cooking” and his Scandi-chic venture with open kitchen in the hipster-central environs of Hackney Wick station provides dishes that are “exploding with flavour and full of originality (the sea bream tartare with miso-ponzu dressing and chilli oil was astonishing!)”. The place has “such a chilled vibe as well” – “it’s great to watch the open kitchen during service” and the atmosphere is “not in the least pretentious”, thanks to service that’s particularly “friendly and expert”. “My daughter and I went for her 21st and my 59th – amazing!”.
3. Silo British, Modern restaurant in Tower Hamlets The White Building, Unit 7 Queens Yard, White Post Lane - E9
Douglas McMaster’s zero-waste project in grungily groovy Hackney Wick opened at a tough time and although it’s attracted awards and adulatory reviews (e.g. from Jimi Famurewa in The Evening Standard) in its early days, there’s very little survey feedback (or indeed social buzz on other sites). It’s a place no eco-warrior should miss, though, churning its own butter, milling ancient grains, making crockery and tables from reconstituted materials, etc. His Brighton site used to do well – more reports, please.
4. Forman’s Fish & seafood restaurant in Bow Stour Rd, Fish Island - E3
2021 Review: This in-house restaurant of the famous smoked salmon smokery (est. 1905) on the River Lea is a “lovely place to eat the best smoked fish, with a great view” – in fact, two views: from a viewing gallery over the smokery, and across to the Olympic stadium next door. For West Ham fans, it’s ideal for a pre-match lunch; for everybody else, “a bit out of the way, but worth the schlep”.
5. Randy's Wing Bar Chicken restaurant in Hackney Wick 28 East Bay Lane, Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - E15
2019 Review: “Very good wings, beers and cocktails” are the payoff to a trip to this unit in Hackney Wick’s Here East development: feedback is limited but upbeat.
