    Skylon, part of the D&D Group can be found located inside the Southbank Centre. Offering good views over the Thames, this restaurant provides a buzzy atmosphere and a relaxing environment.

    Upon arrival, we decided to sample a couple of cocktails. We chose to try ‘The Fig Tree’ which was a blend of vodka and pink grapefruit shaken with fig jam, and the ‘Meltdown’ – a vodka based cocktail shaken with Japanese match tea and served over a basil and lemon ice ball. The presentation was impressive and the cocktails went down nicely.

    After the cocktails, we opted for a glass of Moet and Chandon, which was the perfect aperitif.

    “The presentation was impressive and the cocktails went down nicely.”

    We then sat down for dinner. To start we chose the baked beetroot and Yellison’s Farm goat’s cheese salad with toasted hazelnuts and a port dressing; and the Brixham crab mayonnaise with a pink grapefruit salad.

    Moving on to our main courses, we chose the rib eye steak and the fillet steak with a garlic and herb butter. We were pleased to note that all beef served at Skylon comes from sustainable Hereford cross cattle, which is sourced from Taunton in Somerset. The meat was certainly tasty, and was cooked well.

    As sides, we ordered the crushed swede and the mashed potato. Unfortunately, the crushed swede arrived only slightly warm, however it was replaced swiftly and without a fuss.

    To accompany our meal, we chose a bottle of Tuscan Chianti, which was a great addition. The wine list at Skylon is certainly reasonable.

    We enjoyed our visit to Skylon. The staff were friendly, the food was good, and the cocktails were a nice start to the evening. If you’re in the area, it’s worth checking it out and enjoying a drink, or perhaps a bite to eat.
