because I'm making all the icons display nicely on retina screens, they are looking rubbish on normal screens (see top right). Might have to go down the svg or font icon service route...

I'm digging the icon font route.
Yeah Icon fonts rock at any size and any resolution. Still an accessibility issue I believe
Looking sweet Matt.
Just a thought, couldn't you just serve up the high-res retina ready icons using media queries? With something like:
@media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2)
You'd need two sets of icons but if you're not using that many wouldn't be too much of a chore?

@Garry Aylott That could a solution, extra work though..
@Trent Walton Yep, I agree. *Slaps head* Duh, maybe I should ask @Jon Hicks in person, who sits directly opposite me. :)
Go for SVG and use a fallback script for older browsers. We used it in a HTML5 dashboard for PC and Tablets and it worked out awesome!
