Dominating Manchester's landscape since 2006, Beetham Tower remains a focal point for the city. The sumptuous Hilton Manchester Deansgate spans across the first 23 floors of this iconic building. Its restaurant and bar, Podium, serves up contemporary European dishes in stylish surroundings, and offers a dining experience as exceptional as the hotel itself.

Head chef David Gale has had a career that would make most chefs green with envy - a highlight includes his role as head chef for the incomparable Alain Ducasse. We were treated to the lavish grazing menu, which spanned over six courses. Each dish was expertly executed, and it was clear every element had been refined and perfected before being allowed out of the kitchen.

The French onion soup starter, served with crisp cheese pastries, was presented in an espresso cup - like coffee, it was rich and oh-so-moreish. The Cheshire beef fillet was outstanding; the meat had been aged for 30 days, giving it an exquisite game-like flavour and unparalleled tenderness. From the five desserts sampled, the shot of blackberry trifle was the most heavenly, offering a gorgeous contrast of sharp blackberry and luscious coconut cream. Wines are selected by the knowledgeable staff to complement each course. Podium offers style, elegance and comfort, combined with flawless cuisine and beautiful views. Whatever your plans are in Manchester, make sure Podium is at the top of your list
