Executive Head Chef Tom Cook, previously of Pont de la Tour, started cooking at age 15, apprenticing under the likes of Gary Rhodes and Michel Roux Jr. Tom brings a wealth of experience to the Skylon kitchen including time with Le Gavroche, The Capital, under head chef Eric Chavot, double Michelin-starred restaurant Midsummer House in Cambridge and more recently Restaurant Tom Aikens.

Look out for seasonal menus that make simple but imaginative use of British ingredients.


Sitting alongside Skylon’s main restaurant, Skylon Grill takes its decorative cue from the Festival of Britain era. This relaxed, informal area has impeccable views along the South Bank and the vista at night is alight with the illuminated outline of some of London’s most famous landmarks.

Renowned Executive Head Chef Tom Cook heads up Skylon Grill and undertakes a simpler, less formal take on Skylon’s main restaurant, yet still maintaining its seasonal British approach. Skylon prides itself on sustainable produce from food at the table to spirits at the bar. Sommelier Marco Marcuzzo has handpicked a large range of high quality wines to enjoy and pair perfectly with your Skylon Grill meal.
