Tonic at Skylon

To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Festival of Britain (1951), South Bank is celebrating all summer with everything from a beach and beach huts to the world’s longest bunting! Skylon Restaurant has got in on the action with a new lunch menu, cocktail list and an in-house art exhibition, which diners can enjoy along with the stunning views of London.

Skylon invited artists Craig Wheatley and Joby Williamson to create a series of works, which they have titled ‘TONIC’. Tonic draws on some of the major themes and motifs of the original festival whilst considering the architecture and drama of the interior of a busy restaurant.

The delicious 3 course Festival Lunch Menu, for £19, includes starters of puy lentils, barrel aged feta, olives, cherry tomatoes, banyuls dressing or roast corn fed chicken salad, chick peas, cucumber, rose harissa; mains of wild mushroom linguini, poached egg, pea shoots, brioche crumbs or roast cod, chick pea and chorizo ragout, beurre blanc; and a warm chocolate brownie, vanilla ice cream for pudding!

The menu can be paired with a cocktail from their new list of British classics, including ‘Skylon’, fresh grapes and ginger muddled, shaken with Ciroc vodka, Pomme liqueur, fresh lime and apple juice served in a chilled martini glass.
