Thank you to everyone at the Hard Rock Cafe for putting on an excellent service to staff and our guests. Everyone had a great time, and we had a perfectly relaxed and chilled out evening that we wanted.

The service was excellent; please pass our thanks onto them all. Also the Manager for the evening was well organised, friendly and helpful. And lastly the food was, as expected brilliant!

We had a great time, and would certainly recommend your venue, food and friendly staff for a great evening out, and in particular catering for our needs when not really knowing just how many people were turning up.

The use of the Lounge upstairs was a great idea, thanks for the suggestion.
