Square Meal Review of Skylon ?

Raised above the bustle of the South Bank, this stunning triple-height space is quite a looker, with huge plate-glass windows offering spectacular views across the Thames and beyond. The river tries to steal the show, but Skylon is no slouch in the style stakes, with its 50s minimalism and dapper, ‘smiling’ staff attending to every detail. Eat in the smartly tailored Restaurant from a menu that shows some new-found British influences and a light seasonal touch – think crisp Cornish mackerel with rhubarb chutney and dandelion salad, a cleverly worked plate of Lune valley lamb with buttered broad beans or wild-strawberry trifle with strawberry sorbet. Otherwise, go casual in the family-friendly Grill with its bare, close-packed tables and an all-day menu ranging from breakfast fry-ups to grills, burgers and robust brasserie dishes such as braised Saddleback pork with peppered carrots. ‘Quaffable’ wines, too.

    The Celeriac :: Skylon, Southbank

    Skylon is one of the more upmarket eateries on London’s Southbank, situated above Royal Festival Hall, but importantly not in the sky. It’s part of the D&D London chain, who run thirty restaurants across the capital. Despite not being in the sky Skylon does offer some pretty impressive views across the Southbank making it just about perfect for a people-watching lunch...
