The food was really good. Our waitress Basha was really good as kept asking how our meal was and if we needed more drinks. I really enjoyed the music although could be a bit noisy at times. The food was good value for money and the burgers we had were really tasty.

Possibly due to COVID, a very limited menu.
Chicken wings were as good as ever but the ribs were shocking, coleslaw was right next to disgusting!
Welcome was lovely, service was ok.
Offered a hard rock glass, never came.
Price definitely doesn’t match food quality.
Won’t return unfortunately

Not a lot available on the menu, with only Nachos or Mac/cheese available for the vegetarians of our party. The cocktails available were also very limited.
Service was great but the menu was disappointing.

Great time as always at Hard Rock, just a shame that only 1 1/2 hour slot, feel ever so slightly rushed. Also didn't like sitting in the what felt like overflow section at back, I feel you miss a bit of the atmosphere, I would have hoped for a better seat considering we booked a few weeks before.

Quite possibly the worst food I have ever had, I dunno where the steak was from but I would get a better cut of meat from asda smartprice. 100% I will not recommend anyone else to come to the hard Rock Cafe.

I genuinely can't get over terrible the food was especially after how much it cost. So dissapointed.

Really lovely service from Tracey and Andrew, who made sure I was comfortable after I mentioned to our waitress that I had allergies. Only thing that was disappointing was being charged for the cocktail glasses even though we weren’t aware this was the case.

Booking a table online I got an 8.30pm slot but by 4pm I realised it was too late and rang to get an earlier slot. It was successful and the lovely lady I spoke to made the call easier than I anticipated. My 7.15 slot was perfect and service was immaculate and prompt. The meal was better than I remembered it although the rock music accompaniment was just noise.
