Skylon Restaurant

The restaurant and bar are beautiful and have fantastic views. The food was decent - what you'd expect for the price, although the portions were mean. The cocktails were also disappointing... From start to finish, in that they took about 25 mins for them to arrive and by that time the fun of getting lovely and expensive cocktails had lost their allure. When we eventually got our table - the ladies on the desk were verging on surly from our entrance to sitting down (especially when we asked if we could change from the fine dining room to the girll).

The waiter had no personality and made no effort to be friendly and when we eventually got our food we didn't have cutlery so had to wait for that and then when we asked for our green beans with no butter, needless to say it arrived w butter - when they were eventually returned - we had nearly finished our meal. When the bill arrived they also added an additional £20 for cocktails we didn't order (luckily we spotted it!)

I was hoping to show my cousin visiting from Australia a really lovely evening, instead of which we were left irritated and disappointed.

I won't be returning and certainly won't recommend anyone go! Which is a pity as it did have a beautiful view.
