Last Saturday, I went to the theatre, but unfortunately wasn't able to eat there, so went looking. As it was the time of day when most shop restaurants were closing, I found myself at the Hilton and went into the Tower's Restaurant. The bar staff were very efficient, and came with a menu. I ordered a beef and ale pie... More

Excellent range of different salads and lovely Eton Mess. Sitting overlooking the beautiful Cliffords Tower which is flood lit at night give a lovely ambiance. Friendly unobrusive staff

I was staying in the hotel and tried the Restaurant for dinner. Food and service awesome - so much so that I over tipped. one word of warning - they seem to keep the doors from the hotel reception to the Bar/Restaurant closed so it may look closed even when open. Best steak I had in a long time.

We received a dinner date voucher for Christmas which included an offer for the Hilton restaurant for a 3 course meal for 2 including a champagne cocktail. We booked it as a treat while we were on a mini -break but were a bit apprehensive and not really looking forward to it, but ended up having a really good time.... More

We were staying at the hotel with our toddler so booked a table here for dinner as it was easiest. When we arrived the restaurant was freezing, almost empty and then the waiter took us to a table. Although they had a children's menu we were not made to feel welcome with our daughter. The menu options were very limited... More

First visit, I had reviewed the menu ahead of time being quite a fussy eater and was pleased to find a few options to pick from. I went for the goats cheese and beetroot ravioli - bloomin' lovely. The others were pleased with their mixture of sandwiches and choose your own topping pizza too. The service was great and the... More

Great service both in the bar and the restaurant. I would have preferred more veggie choices but in the end I found something I liked so no problems.

Part of the Hilton hotel I was hoping to have a nice restaurant meal with husband but this has changed to an over priced fast food menu, burgers etc.

Not a good hotel. I would expect 4 stars from the Hilton. Long waits between courses, (45 mins between starter and main course.) Food expensive and not very tasty and bland. Not up to temperature sometimes.
