From within the Royal Festival Hall, Skylon Restaurant boasts an unbeatable panorama over the Thames through floor-to-ceiling windows. This great restaurant and grill centres around a raised bar and has become an unmissable London culinary landmark. It takes its name from the rocket-like structure that was erected next to Festival Hall during the 1951 Festival of Britain - its distinctive cigar shape features as a subtle design motif throughout the stylish, modern restaurant.

The menu demonstrates creativity and passion, with each course offering a range of quality dishes, from British classics to bold new inventions. We opted for the roast quail and the steamed scallops with pan-fried foie gras and a citrus salad to start, promptly followed by confit aubergine with tomato relish, goat's cheese cigarettes, courgettes and savoury almonds, as well as the rump of lamb with caramelised merguez, griotte marmalade and Parmesan polenta. The lamb was mouth-wateringly tender and the polenta soft and creamy. For dessert we chose the 'golden apple', which consisted of light caramel, cinnamon and apple foam, blackcurrant coulis, fromage blanc sponge and cider jelly - an innovative ending to a top-notch meal. The service was impeccable and the unobtrusive sommelier helped us to navigate around the extensive wine list - it's as thick as a phonebook. So, next time you visit the Southbank Centre, head to Skylon for a heavy dose of culture and quality cuisine.
