A destination restaurant and a relaxed, informal grill centre around a raised bar serving classic and contemporary cocktails, perfect for day and night.

Their

wine list is a truly global affair, enjoy classic French favourites to New World discoveries, each one chosen to compliment the menu.

Skylon also offers an innovative English inspired wine list featuring some emerging hybrids such as Madeleine Angevine and Seyval, as well as some of the greatest sparkling wines of the country such as Nyetimber (best sparkling wine in the world 2006) or Ridgeview pink cuvée Fitzrovia.

Inspired by the 1951 Festival of Britain, a selection of 1950's reserve wines are also available to celebrate the re-opening of the Royal Festival Hall. Indulge yourself in a 1951 Chateau Latour or a Barbaresco from Pio Cesare of the same vintage, perfect to compliment an evening of fine food and service overlooking the Southbank.

For a less formal dining experience, the grill will serve light meals including steak sandwich, chicken liver foie gras parfait or classic sticky toffee pudding.

The following customer reviews are not endorsed by Fluid London and are simply those of users who wish to publish their independent experiences of Skylon Restaurant & Bar.

“The great location and lovely ambience of the Skylon was not matched by the food or service. One dish had to be returned as dry and stale {the duck), the reordered pasta dish while nicely presented was awash with oil. Other dishes for our party of six were of a poor quality. There appear to be some rather strange house rules with: wine and water not left on the table. The service was slow 20minute wait for the bill and the table left uncleared at a time when the place was not full. A shame when it had been choosen for a special occasion1.”
