    The staff were friendly but food was extremely slow to come out and we were going to a concert so it was not very relaxing and disappointing because it’s always previously been very reliable

    Poor ability to deal with lactose intolerance - they simply removed items with no substitutions. Trout with white wine sauce became ....trout (which was extremely dry and over salted). They eventually gave us some red wine sauce (pre-made with beef stock) which tasted awful. My partner is a coeliac and was given a piece of gluten free supermarket sliced white bread to have with her smoked salmon starter (in place of rye bread)...not even toasted. I used to rate Skylon but it has gone down hill. Will not be returning

    Staff always attentive & friendly. We had the bottomless Sunday brunch which was great value and tasty indeed with free flowing prosecco - a firm favourite with my friends and I. Great location too. We'll be back soon
