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.

    Ok but nothing special. It was quite noisy and all a bit disorganised, food wouldn't pass great British bake off test.

    A spacious and quiet location away from all the crowds in York. The staff were very attentive, humourus and helpful. We took a 90 year old there for her xmas treat and she loved it.

    Dissapointing. For the hilton I expected a better service and better food. The sandwhices were dissapointing and stale. Won't be visiting again

    Lovely quiet setting but I think you should be able to choose your sandwiches rather than them be already made

    Had a lovely time having afternoon tea for a friends 50th birthday. Excellent service and great value for money. Looking to come to york again in the very near future and would definitely come back to the Hilton for afternoon tea.

    Our party of five adults dined in Tower Restaurant on Friday 28 Oct, and everyone was highly satisfied with their meal and with the Customer Service. Staff were very friendly and attentive, and the quality of the food was excellent. We would definitely dine here again on our next trip to York.

    Very accommodating to my many food allergies and adapted the food to suit at no extra cost.
