Prior to upgrading to Yosemite, to reduce a pdf file size I simply opened the file in Preview, selected Save As, and applied the Reduce File Size quartz filter. Am I missing something really obvious or has this function been removed?

It's still there. When you load the PDF go to the File and choose Export As. Leave the file type set to PDF. The setting is in a drop down menu just below filetype.
