In the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank, Skylon makes the most of its position with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the Thames. Part of D&D London, this spacious venue has been kitted out to echo the building’s 50s architecture, featuring mid-century-style furniture and fixtures. It’s divided into three sections, with a raised bar separating the relaxed brasserie from the fine-dining area – both are popular choices for semi-private dining. The space can also be be hired exclusively for large dinners. Menus focus on modern British dishes: expect the likes of oxtail cottage pie and pan-fried halibut.
