We usually love the Hard Rock Cafe but for some reason the experience wasn’t the same. Food and service were average. Staff were friendly but maybe overstretched. Food was plentiful but nothing special. Left feeling a bit disappointed.

Ambience and service were very good but was disappointed in the food - severely reduced menu and no house special burger with haggis which was my whole reason for visiting- also felt prices were not reflective of quality of the food - love the hard rock brand but visit fell short of the usual expectations.

The visit was amazing, our server provided exceptional service and went above and beyond even suggesting gluten free options to try. The food was fantastic and the drinks were excellent, definitely worth the visit and the money. Overall, a great time with a great atmosphere.

Terrible service. It is clear that the focus is on big groups and not couples. The food was excellent but will not be back due to very poor service.

Food was bland. Wait for drinks was as long as the food.

Waitress was ok.

Been to many Hard Rock's and this was the worst.

Definatley worth a visit! First time for my Daughter and she loved it.
Not somewhere we could afford often, but for a special treat, and the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had.

Personally I thought it was quite overpriced. My main issue however, was the Cheese Loaded fries advertised on the menu. My son ordered them with his vegetarian burger and when they arrived the had a cheese and bacon topping. Not ideal for a vegetarian. How about advertising them as with bacon so that vegetarians don’t eat them. Other than that it was very tasty food.

Staff and service were great, food was bang average for high cost, tables and menus were sticky, toilets weren't as clean as you’d expect hand sanitiser at all points.

Booked the table at short notice and notified during booking that my wife is coeliac. They took notice of the booking with the alternate menu being supplied without asking and this is very rare. Once we ordered the on duty supervisor then came over and addressed any potential concerns and talked her through the kitchen processes. Service 10/10. Highly recommend!

Went for lunch with my daughter and her 2 children. I was so disappointed at the offerings we were served with a bill of £60 I expected food that at least looked appealing!! I chose BBQ Bacon Burger which when it arrived, looked so small on the plate with nothing else but a small bucket of fries, my daughter chose chicken tenders; 3 chicken tenders and some fries scattered around to make the plate look full, 2 dips, nothing else, a very bland unappealing plate. One of the kids had macaroni, it must have been around a tablespoons of macaroni spread flatly on the plate with some fries, shes 4 years old and had eaten it all in about 20 seconds and was still hungry. Her sister had Burger and fries, which was exactly that !! A dry Burger on a bun with some fries.
The non alcoholic cocktails were just a bit of fruit juice and some sprite with a not so fresh strawberry on the side of the glass!!! I was so disappointed with the quality and quantity of the food for the cost.
