My husband and I both enjoyed afternoon tea . The service was attentive yet discreet. The smoked salmon sandwiches and strawberry tarts were our favourites !

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.

    Good service, poor range of sandwiches , bread dry as though been made early mornings? Cakes ok, but should ask people regarding nuts...

    The waiting staff were extremely polite and welcoming. We required certain 'awkward' amendments to be made to our afternoon tea, which was done without any negatime reactions. The decor/atmosphere of the restaurant was just right.

    We visited 'Hilton York towers restaurant' for afternoon tea and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The restaurant was pleasant and the staff very attentive, replenishing our tea and coffee without us having to seek them out.
    The traditional afternoon tea that we were opted for was perfectly presented on 3 tier stands, sandwiches, delicious cakes and a warm scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam .. just delightful.
    I definitely recommend the Hilton at York for afternoon tea and would definitely go again.

    Lovely atmosphere, very sophisticated. Had a truly amazing time and day out with a close friend. Only remembered to call up about a vegan option for him about 3 hours before and rang up and there was absolutely no problem about it with the staff and they kindly asked the chef for one and was resolved in less than a 5 minute phone call! Excellent service! The staff couldn't do enough for us and were extremely polite and friendly. Both afternoon tea's themselves were absolutely stunning - the best vegetarian afternoon tea i've ever had! And as for my friend's vegan option i was so impressed at how much had gone into it with the substitutes i.e with vegan chocolates and cookies and fresh fruit ready for him as some of the options! So brilliant! :) Would definitely come again - and was only £25 for the both of us!
