Great atmosphere as expected from a hard rock cafe, service was good and the burger was amazing. Cocktails are good too and worth the upgrade for the souvenir glass.

The food was really nice, however when serviced I requested for sauce but never received it for over 15 minutes until asking another waiter. Once finished we ordered cocktails which took 45 minutes to come.

I love the atmosphere of this place, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and always go the extra mile to make your dining experience memorable. The food is outstanding, I had the Cowboy Steak which with no exaggeration was the best steak I had ever had, and my girlfriend had burger and cheesy fries which she said were amazing. We finished off sharing the chocolate brownies which were unbelievable. All in all I would thoroughly recommend and will definitely be returning and hope to visit other Hardrock Cafes too.

A lovely meal, only spoilt slight by a tight and cramped setting. Noise level was high due to couple of rowdy groups, which can’t be helped. Food and Service exceptional as per usual.

What a brilliant experience we had, It was myself and my daughter as part of a girly afternoon celebrating her birthday. Our waiter was aware and made a lovely fuss of her for her birthday, with the entire restuarant singing happy birthday to her - Lovely Day!

Food was cold and had to be sent back. We waited ages for our drinks to arrive. We had booked a table in advance but when we arrived we still had to wait on a table.

We booked a table in advance and when we got there we were given the beep machine and told to wait, we could go into the bar as my daughter is 13 years old, even though the bar is in the same room as the entrance. The guy took great lengths to tell us why we couldn’t go into the bar. Unfortunately whilst doing this he forgot to book us into the system and after 35 minutes of standing in a cold doorway I enquired as to how long we had to wait to be told oh a mistake has been made. The manager apologised and gave us 1 free drink each. Food was nice, massive portions music was great. Very pricey, TGIFridays was better

We had a wonderful time and they played our song choices. Unfortunately we had issues with the chicken but the Manager, Nick, surpassed all expectations with his handling of the situation. Meanwhile the portions were huge and very tasty. Thank you again.

We were half an hour late to our table, I rang the restaurant and they kept it for us. We let the waiters know we were in a rush as we had a show, the food came within 10 mins. Excellent service!

Great night. The food was delicious, all in our party thought the food was great. Only slight negative was drinks took a while to be brought to table, but this was a minor point and I would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed our meal...had gift voucher towards "Gold" menu...not a great choice and only 1 sweet option. Music was terrible and so loud couldnt hear ourselves and tables around us were noisy because of the volume of the music....not sure if id return soon but food was good.

Enjoyed the meal service was very good no complaints. Only criticism was the kids pizza. It wasn’t very good the base was a tortilla which I thought was a bit of a cheat. Overall had a nice meal.

The food never disappoints! Staff were so friendly and welcoming. The prawn starter was amazing but expensive as almost same price as the burger. Bacon cheeseburger was delicious. The rum cocktail was very nice but in a small glass-I would have expected it in a bigger glass for the price.
