Hard Rock Cafe on London's swanky Park Lane is a hit with families - locals and tourists alike - thanks to its reputation for serving up a winning combination of food, entertainment and culture, all under one roof.

With Halloween just around the corner, here are six frighteningly good reasons why visiting the Hard Rock Cafe London on 31 October or 1 November means much more than just a meal:

1. Spooky treats for little horrors

The Hard Rock Cafe knows how to do Halloween in style. Their fabulous Lil' Monsters Ball takes place on Saturday 31 October 2015 and Sunday 1 November, 10am – 12pm. Little ones and their parents are invited to tuck into a spooky, all-you-can-eat, American-style buffet breakfast. There will also be pumpkin carving and fancy dress competitions, ghostly face painting, scary goody bags, Halloween games and even special guests.

2. Famously good grub

The Hard Rock Cafe's London branch opened its doors more that 40 years ago and has been serving fresh, handmade classic America grub, with a Southern flair, ever since. From crispy potato skins and jumbo chicken wings, legendary burgers and pulled-pork, to melt-in-the mouth hot fudge brownies – The Hard Rock's menu never fails to impress, and the Halloween buffet is no exception.

3. A journey through musical history

After tucking into a selection of American treats, take the kids on a stroll through musical history, introducing them to the legends of the past through the impressive pieces of music memorabilia on display in the cafe and in the Vault just over the road under The Rock Shop. The Vault is London’s only rock n’ roll museum and is a treasure trove of valuable music possessions of iconic artists from across the world – and it’s completely free. Nestled in a former Coutts Bank, The Vault was once home to the Queen’s coffers.

4. Fantastic value

Hard Rock is known for serving up tasty treats and an affordable price, and their Halloween buffet (which you can revisit as many times as you like!) costs just £7.95 for kids, and £11.95 for adults.

5. Extra special service

The team at the Hard Rock Cafe work hard to make each meal an experience. They make a point of introducing themselves to diners and doing whatever it takes to make guests happy. They'll sometimes even change the music if you have a special request, and if it's someone in the family's birthday, don't forget to mention it to your waiter – you might get a special surprise!

6. Make a day of it

The Hard Rock Cafe sits proudly on Park Lane, a stone's throw from London's beautiful Hyde Park. After filling up on a tasty Halloween buffet, why not hire Boris bikes, or set off on foot to enjoy the spectacular Autumn colours of one of the capital's biggest and most famous park?
