Pity covid rules only allow alcohol outside, not inside. Food good, service good and polite but one error with a drink, soon rectified. Used to enjoy the sound tracks to the videos a bit louder. Overall very good, will go again, of course, but when full service is allowed.

Excellent service and food. Only disappointment was having a time limit on our reservation which meant we had to miss desert and coffee. Would return.

Absolutely outstanding. From the ZZ top bearded gent on the door making sure we were checked in and sanitised, to explaining the rules of dining inside versus outside. The brummie lady hosting who was fantastic, great personality and a credit to your company. Klaudia who was brilliant with her service, attention to detail and getting my tunes on the the big screens. 5 stars is well deserved :)

Ordered pasta as a main dish and received chicken also. Server deducted the cost and apologised.
Expensive for what it was but the Grandsons enjoyed the experience.

Good to get out after lockdown, friendly staff.

Super service as ever and my gluten free Grandson was really pleased with his burger and fries! But no tomato ketchup.... how can Hard Rock run out of an every day staple?

Service excellent. Starters good. Mains- burgers not nice , very strong meaty flavour , both of us couldn’t eat them. Shame as it spiked the experience , especially after 12 months of lockdown☹️

It would have been nicer if they had parasols outside as it started lightly raining and there was nothing to protect. Unfortunately due to Covid regulations, alcohol could only be consumed outside.

Food has been maintained at good standard and good portion. Friendly and helpful service. Lively ambience.

Menu selection is not varied enough though. Will be great with more choices.
