Brunching out at Skylon

There are signs of new life sprouting up over on the South Bank with The Mondrian at Sea Containers – designer Tom Dixon’s latest project – due to open it doors at the end of the month.

Yet while The Mondrian is set to shake up the South Bank scene this September, Skylon will continue to draw the crowds. The D&D London restaurant has always been a destination dinner spot but restaurant has recently launched a new Sunday brunch menu.


Guests can enjoy classic British brunch dishes and a brunch-inspired cocktail collection overlooking the hustle and bustle of Southbank in an iconic riverside location within the Royal Festival Hall. A selection of Sunday newspapers are be on offer for those wishing to while away a few hours, while for those looking to continue Saturday night’s party vibe, there’s a funky Motown and Disco playlist –  the perfect soundtrack to a brunch-time Bloody Mary and eggs.

The menu, which has been carefully designed by executive head chef, Adam Gray, features brunch favourites such as Eggs Benedict and Pancakes with bacon and maple syrup alongside lighter options – think Brixham crab cakes with crisp fennel salad and dill mayonnaise.  Exclusive to the Sunday Brunch menu, there’s also a collection of brunch cocktails including a Double peach bellini,  Aperol spritz, Bloody Mary, Espresso martini and Skylon’s signature brunch Martini, designed by bar manager Frederic Tartas, shaking Bacardi Oakheart with fresh orange juice and maple syrup.
