Skylon should be one of London's most iconic restaurants but the patchy service lets it down. I went on the 28th and had reserved a table for four. The food was good and the atmosphere buzzing but the appalling front of house was dreadful. She was rude and abrupt to us and her colleagues, assumed I had not made a reservation and had trouble understanding my name, demanding "what?" "what?" . We had requested a window table on booking months ago as it was a special occasion but this was not honoured.

The other waiters were lovely and I hope the management take note as their reputation rests not only on the food but on the way staff treat their customers.

Cheese and Biscuits

Cheese and Biscuits - 4/10

Wednesday, December 19, 2012 - With the assumption that you couldn't cock up a chateaubriand too badly we'd ordered this to share, and in fact it wasn't bad - nicely medium-rare with a decent crust and seasoned well. The potato & ceps fondant was very rich but reasonably enjoyable in a sloppy, mushroomy kind of way and the Madeira jus showed someone in the kitchen knew what they were doing, but the beef wasn't of particularly high quality...It was, like the Oxo tower just further down the river, a complete waste of time and money, an anachronistic bear-trap of a place hoovering up Southbank revellers while their guard is down after too many cups of Christmas Market Gluhwein.
