My hubbie and I have frequented numerous Hard Rock cafes the world over before we had kids, including New York, Dubai, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. We figured it was about time we introduced them to the noise, smells and ambience.
Today we visited the Manchester Hard Rock cafe in the city centre, before visiting the footie museum around the corner.
We got there just before they were open, and they kindly let us come in and sit down, save standing about outside with two fidgety kids.
The kids' menu was basically chicken and chips, hotdogs and so on. The kids love fajitas, so I asked for a portion of adult chicken fajitas and two plates. This was no problem for the waiter at all. He did mention that food off the childrens' menu was free with an adult meal which was good of him, but I explained that they wanted to eat something from the adult menu. He kindly offered their drinks for free instead, which he didn't have to do.
The food arrived reasonably quickly, however the kids also had a kiddy book and wax crayons to keep them quiet, not to mention the music, relics and music videos on the tv. Plenty to see and do.
The food was good - hot and fresh, and the service friendly and efficient. The children were made to feel welcome, and I have a feeling my other half and I may be about to rediscover our love of the Hard Rock! Date night, here we come!!
