Overpriced. Food nice but not outstanding. Bottomless drinks well stocked by waiter.
Would sum it up as almost TGI Fridays but atmosphere not as good and more expensive for no apparent reason other than to pay for the spattering of random memorabilia on walls.
Had a nice meal but wouldn’t rave about it.

Don’t think you should be selling deserts for sharing in the current climate. There was no choice to buy individual deserts

Have been to the hard rock on a few occasions and had an amazing time hence why we revisited on this occasion. However this time I was left slightly unsatisfied with the food. I ordered a New York strip steak (medium rare) and felt like I was fighting with my plate as the meat was tuff and quite fatty. It was also disappointing to find that The desert menu only offered 2 options that were overpriced at £10 and the portion sizes were far too big. I would of preferred a smaller portion for a fraction of the price. Based on my experience this time I don’t feel like rushing back to the restaurant soon .

They forgot about us and after 30mins we asked how long we have to wait. Got table straight away and manager gave us free nachos to apologise. We ended up having to put longer on the car due to this.

This was our first time out at a restaurant since lockdown. The staff made us feel very comfortable & that safety was paramount. Food & service were fantastic. The prices are a touch on the high side though.

Great service and lovely staff. Food as lovely as always. Only reason giving it a 4 and not 5 was nachos were quite dry with not enough toppings or sauces. Rest was so good. Definitely recommend.
