Girls night out, meal and prosecco guaranteed. The Podium is a lovely place, it was just nice to be able to sit and catch up with everyone in nice surroundings. The food was absolutely wonderful it did not disappoint, it never does, we've been a few times and I realised that I've never reviewed it. The service is spot on,... More

I got the broccoli and Stilton rissotto which was amazing first time is ever had it and fell in love, the rib eye steak I got for my main was 11/10 cooked and seasoned perfectly (medium/rare) genuinely one of the best steaks I've ever had! Would recommend! Ever the chips were to die for !

We purchased a deal from Groupon for a Burger Meal, which included a drink. It was for myself my Husband and my Daughter who had telephoned ahead to explain that the fourth member of our party wasn't able to attend. We were all greeted with a lovely smile and Olga who had spoken to my Daughter showed us to our... More

Please read all reviews on Hilton website before booking to avoid dissapointment!!! The place has really gone to the dogs! cold food, servers who cannot be bothered serving & a draughty open diner that trys to pass as five star... not a chance! Save your money & head to a chippy, at least you know the food will be hot!!!

The Beetham Tower is my favourite building in the uk -the breakfast place ,however ,in the Hilton on the ground floor is a truly near death experience. Zombie waiting staff soulessly wandering around avoiding eye contact and lots of nasty expensive unhealthy food in the distance . Add in lift music and the fact it's freezing Avoid at all costs...

I stayed in the hotel for one night on business. This is a spacious bar and restaurant, very modern and contemporary. I had one drink in there and decided not to eat there as it lacked character and ambience. Too open cold and lacking a relaxing atmosphere.

The service is as expected,top notch. Our servers were Angelo & Sophie (a trainee) but a real keeper. Friendly & helpful. The restaurant is large & bright however the carpet requires attention in places. The burger was excellent quality, on a brioche bun,accompanied by cheese & bacon. Scrummy. Chips were as described, fries, crisp & salty. I've got a decent... More

Visited with groupon deal for burger, fries & drink. Best part of it was the drink! Don't think I've had such a poor burger in a long time, and it was hardly warm. Chips hard and just normal frozen chips fried! If they are trying to use groupon to get more custom through the door, then it won't last as... More
