    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.
