We particularly enjoyed the Ploughmans sharing starter. There was a live singer in the bar area which was quite loud so we asked to be sat by the window which was fine. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy so lacked a little atmosphere.

Afternoon tea...minimal filled sandwiches and bought in cakes that just tasted artificial like a Mr Kipling! After ordering a glass of processco that should of been £3.95 I was told this wasn’t available it would be an extra £1 to upgrade I agreed when getting the bill it was £19.00 for two. Not impressed referred to a manager who told me I had been misinformed not really the customer service I expected from the Hilton group!

Lovely ambience. We ate here mid Sunday afternoon before going to a show at the NIA. Good menu choices but disappointingly there were quite a few items unavailable. Considering the restaurant was quiet food was slow to arrive. We all enjoyed what we had to eat and waiting staff were all very helpful even checking what we'd each had and dividing up the bill accordingly.

The experience i had was very downgraded. i have been here several times before for afternoon tea, always been satisfactory, service has been good, the afternoon tea itself has been amazing. this time unfortunately i was disappointed with the staff, and how they served us. the drinks were poorly made, they were sent back, the bread was stale, and no drinks menu was provided at All. i felt like my money had gone to waste.
