Lance FormanManaging Director
Before taking over the 4th generation salmon smoking family business,
Lance Forman started out as President of the Cambridge
Union, qualified as a chartered accountant at Price
Waterhouse and was then appointed Special Adviser to
the Secretary of State
for Trade and Industry.
He joined Forman's in 1994 and has developed the business, pioneering the growth in speciality British Food, through the launch of Forman & Field.
His battle with former Mayor of London over the compulsory purchase of the Forman's factory led
to the development of a new premises, venue and restaurant – Forman's Fish Island – in record breaking speed. It is the closest venue in London to the 2012 Olympic Stadium.
Lloyd HardwickExecutive Chef
Lloyd was learnt his craft under the Roux Brothers, going on to become the first Executive Chef of The Tate Modern. Lloyd's recipes and menus are legendary, original and are a taste sensation.
Most venues have to hire outside caterers and bring food to the venue. All of our catering is done in house and on site, it's some of the best event food in London.
