Standing on Old Park Lane since June 14th 1971, the original Hard Rock Cafe offers authentic, casual American fare. Still housing the first ever piece of memorabilia donated to the Hard Rock Cafe, Eric Clapton's Lead II Fender, originally given to reserve a space at the busy bar, the London Cafe is as iconic now as it was over 45 years ago. A visit to the Cafe would not be complete without a visit to The Rock Shop for your Hard Rock London souvenir and to see The Vault, London’s only Rock ’n’ Roll museum. The Vault is free of charge and home to John Lennon’s hand written lyrics to Instant Karma, Madonna’s basque from her Vogue Tour and the harpsichord used by The Beatles to record "All You Need Is Love" and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" amongst other iconic and valuable pieces.

Food was great as usual but conversation with our server was interesting to begin with. He asked what the occasion was and we said it's our 5 year anniversary to which his response was, 'urgh. But the time I got to 5 years I was already divorced'. My partner told him we're getting married this year and his reaction to this was to tell us that whenever anyone tells him they're engaged or getting married he tells them 'don't do it'. After that we had a few good conversations around other topics so it was fine but we just thought they were very strange things to say to people who were there to celebrate an anniversary.

Despite having a reservation had to queue in the rain to get in.
Table for 2 was tiny and cramped.
Waiter just walked off before I'd finished ordering drinks and ended up fetching my own from the bar!
Terrible service but food was nice and plenty of it.

London being where the Hard Rock started, it's definitely worth going to if for nothing but the novelty.

Excellent service and the food was amazing. My only mark down would be that the tables are too squashed together so they can fit as many people in as possible at the expense of the diners comfort. My husband and I sat opposite eachother and whilst he went to the bathroom a table sat down behind him so upon his return he could no longer sit down and he had to move next to me. Thankfully there were only the two of us.

The food was average, the service was great couldnt be faulted at all! But we paid extra for the two cocktail glasses as we go to the hardrock in every city we go to for the collectors glasses and they don’t even say london on them, fuminh doesnt describe how we feel as we are hard rock regulars and are even staying in the hard rock in florida in a few months, really let down

Great service with a smile and so very pleased our special treat turned so lovely purely because of our server

Very cool to sit in the original Hard Rock Cafe, with incredible rock memorabilia all around. The food was good, and our waitress gave us the fun tip that if we went next door to the gift shop and asked to go downstairs there was some additional memorabilia to be viewed there, as well. We went over and got to see things like Madonna's white pointy breasted corset, John Lennon's eyeglasses, and more. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area of Buckingham Palace.

We arrived to our booking 15 mins early and our table was already ready which was great. Our waiter Craig was very friendly and welcoming and great at his job, he gave us some history of the restaurant which my son was very interested in. We were there celebrating my sons 16 birthday and Craig brought his desert out with a candle and sang happy birthday which was very much appreciated. 5 star customer service from Craig!
