Understaffed.
Bar staff couldn’t do a Kir Royale which is a bit strange considering it’s a very basic cocktail- even when I told them what to put in they said they couldn’t as they were unsure of measurements (!).
Food was lukewarm. Bangcock shrimp was on a bed of tortilla chips which is not how it is usually served - tasted weird - obviously they had run out of key ingredients and tried to cover it up.
Lighting was very stark - lots of bright white lights - so didn’t particularly feel relaxed whilst dining. Edinburgh and London really put this one to shame, sadly.
Disappointed :-(

We booked Hard Rock Cafe because we had booked to see Dirty Harry in the same venue .when we arrived we found out the gig had been cancelled and we had not been contacted . The staff were really friendly and helpful and found out that the gig has been rescheduled for next year . Our waiter Siris was absolutely fantastic he couldn’t do enough for us and he made our night very pleasant .The meal was lovely and the cocktails went down well . We will definately be back

Love Hard Rock and been to them all over the world but the menu is a bit bland these days. Especially for vegetarians who have hardly any choice……I know it’s been a rough few years but a bit of work on the place wouldn’t go amiss !!

We arrived early but this wasn't a problem. We were greeted by a very pleasant young man. Made sure we registered re covid. We were then shown to our table. All staff were helpful. We were looked after by our server very well & the food was lovely.

The serving staff was very friendly, welcoming and attentive. It seems like you are paying a premium for ambience as the food is fair but quite overpriced for what it is. For 1 adult and 1 teen, we had 2 cocktails (and souvenir glass additional £3), 2 milkshakes, onion rings and loaded nachos as starters and a burger and ribs with fries on the side for mains. All in £90.00+

Would probably try a different restaurant for our next basic burger outing. Good setting for a celebration where value for money is not an issue.

Had a nice lunch and a couple of drinks. Food was very good although a bit heavy on the jalapenos. Also ordered 2 beers for my wife and myself expecting 2 bottles. Got 2 pints costing £6.00 each. Should have been advised that it was pints, not bottles.
Service is attentive but not overpowering. The actual place is very atmospheric inside and a nice place to spend a lunchtime or evening. Would definitely go back.

Service we received was absolutely brilliant however the disappointing factor of this visit was the Twisted Mac & Cheese was absolutely tasteless which is such a shame! We shared nachos to start with were nice and my partner had a burger he said was good, other than that drinks were good and service was brill!
