We visited the Podium restaurant for breakfast. The breakfast is served as a buffet breakfast but you can also ask a waiter for an omelette to be made just to your liking. You have lots of choice at the breakfast buffet. the eggs are baked in front of you. Lots of choice and good quality food.

Generally quite evening when we visited in December Staff very attentive, and accommodating Good choice of food to select and chose from Would prefer to dine in cloud located within the Hilton next time ... as it sounded rather lively up there. Overall a pleasant evening however.

Four of us went on a Groupon- 2 courses and a glass of prosecco each. The menu was limited and one of us paid extra for a steak. The starters were great and although looked small, had lots of flavour. The main course needed to have side dishes, I think it would have been helpful for the waiter to suggest... More

Great ambiance, very stylish. Service kind and quick. Food is so and so, nothing special but not bad. You don't come back for the food for sure.

We got a deal on groupon and had a two course meal, we did pay a little extra for steaks because there wasn't a great deal to choose from on what there was to offer for the voucher that we had got. The starters came out really quickly and they were really good and not too big of a portion,... More

After a meal here last night full of high expectations I was sadly disappointed. We were greeted warmly but were advised that as they were busy they will 'try' and fit us in even though there were plenty of empty tables. We were seated and finally after a unexpected wait asked if we were ready to order. Finally they asked... More

We got a deal off Groupon which was a good deal. The restaurant was looking a bit worn (carpet worn to thread in places tables also look like they had seen better days) the place was clean though. Staff were polite, however service was slow. The food was good but not brilliant, it was well presented on the plate but... More

I attended for dinner with a couple of friends. The evening started well with good service but slowly went down hill. Our main courses were brought the table before we had finished our starters. They took them away and checked we finished the starters, then cleared the starters and then served our main course dishes. I asked for a drink,... More

The food was excellent the sweet potato fries were amazing crisp on the outside soft in the middle,the prosecco was a... More

I attended my wife's Christmas party on the 17th December and in all my time as a trip advisor contributor I have never been so disgusted at what is supposed to be a top of the range restaurant. The Name Hilton is supposed to be synonymous with class, this was sadly lacking. On entering the restaurant myself and my wife... More
