A buzzing, cosmopolitan venue, Tower’s Restaurant showcases an impressive selection of European dishes and an extensive wine list. The interior offers dramatic views of the Clifford’s Tower through the large windows and the exclusive bar area is perfect for a drink before or after a meal.

Dishes on the Tower’s menu include Parma ham and goats cheese salad , duck breast with butternut squash puree and juniper berry jus, fisherman’s pie made with salmon, cod and duchee potatoes with chef’s special tartare sauce, and roast pork belly with braised red cabbage, apple compote and calvados sauce. The Taste of Yorkshire menu includes hearty, comforting recipes like diced beef slow cooked with ale and tomatoes, served in a giant Yorkshire pudding.

For sweet indulgence, desserts include a chunky bramley apple pie, sticky toffee pudding, and salted chocolate caramel tart. Enjoy a glass of wine or champagne at the Tower Lounge in York, or try a quick snack or sandwich.

Located within the walls of the old city, Tower’s Restaurant at the Hilton York is within a 4-minute walk from York Castle.

    We had a lovely afternoon having afternoon tea at the Hilton York. The price was very reasonable especially for the champagne afternoon tea and you did get a lot for your money.. It was well worth it and I would definitely recommend it.

    This visit was as a result of purchasing a 'voucher' for traditional afternoon tea. During our visit it was clear most of the other diners were there for the same reason as us, as a result we felt that the normal high standard of service I have previously received when dining within a Hilton hotel wasn't achieved. It felt a bit like a 'sausage factory' based on our experience and watching how the other customers were dealt with. This may be due to many reasons e.g. Everyone on vouchers - may not get a tip, repetitive and not really Hilton guests ....
    It was the little things such as explaining what was on the cake stand, are you a vegetarian?, serving with an open pen in the hand. No satisfaction check, no contact from serving to leaving.

    These were all small issues but would have made the whole experience so much better and fitting given the class and location of the hotel.

    Booked this as a treat for friends so that we could meet for a long overdue catch up. We actually stayed for 5 hours! This caused no problems with the staff who were only too happy to serve us with more drinks on request. Good service and food, we left feeling quite full!

    Belated birthday treat. The staff and service was spot on. Sandwiches , cakes and scones were so fresh and nicely presented. We were not rushed and spent a good hour and half eating and chatting. The afternoon was finished of with a glass of prosecco. Would visit again.
