When I hear the name Royal Festival Hall, I instantly think of the Festival of Britain. So it’s only fitting that its new Skylon Resturant is inspired by the building’s origins.
The Skylon has been designed by Conran and Partners, with a colour scheme and fittings that pay tribute to the 1950s, without actually taking it back to that era. So expect some mid-century-inspired furnishings, big chandeliers, an olive, bronze and gold colour scheme plus walnut and limestone floors.
As for the food? Well, we can’t comment as we haven’t eaten there, but looking at the online menu, it’s certainly not ration book cooking.
