Out for my best friend’s birthday drinks and the waitress (Emily??) could not have done more for us. She was very attentive and was very helpful when it came to recommending cocktails and food. Great service :)

visited Saturday. Table booked for 8pm for food before drinks for a stag do. Arrived at 8:05 and was not seated until 9 pm due to over running booking. bang in the middle of the bar area. food eventually arrived at 10:30pm, with cold chips....took 45 minutes to get served a warm beer. service was shocking for an establishment of this size and reputation. only positive was the lady running the dining was working her socks off to try and deliver some kind of service to us. she is an absolute credit to the place. she deserves better than the way she was treated by some other punters.More

We visited here for my friend's hen do 24th July and completed the cocktail masterclass with Emily and she was brilliant! I genuinely feel she made the class what it was. It was so fun and she got us all involved and having a laugh...together. The cocktails were also fab and she accommodated the non drinkers brilliantly too. If you have a masterclass here definitely try and request Emily, she is the hostess with the mostest! However we did book the package so had dinner too and this unfortunately won't great. The starters were nice but then it took 45 minutes at least for the mains to arrive due to staff issues and being busy. We just decided to leave before the pudding because it was late at this point. Good bar in general but I think better if they stuck to cocktails and music and don't bother with the food side of things! Oh and Emily rocks!!More

I arranged a Hendo for my mum during Covid and it was a nightmare. Things being canceled and restrictions constantly changing. Thankfully Chantelle amended our booking and absolutely made our day. She went above and beyond to keep my mums Hendo booked in while still...following the government guidelines. I can thank her enough! She was friendly, approachable and one of the most helpful members of staff I have ever come across. The bottomless brunch was amazing with cocktails constantly flowing. Thank you Chantelle you were an amazing host and so welcoming that you made our weekend!More

Visited here on the 17th July for a hen do there were 18 of us but obviously due to Covid couldn’t be seated together which we expected . Im going to be very honest this place is a complete crap hole . Had a pre...book 3 course meal which was total inedible . Wouldn’t feed it to to a dog . I had calamari which was greasy and soggy . Mains was shredded duck salad which was more like dog food it was like it had been chewed up and spat out and had random raspberries in the salad didnt bother eating the dessert as it wasn’t served to us until 10.30 pm .The barbecue chicken wasn’t even barbecue it was hoisin sauce . The service was terrible and so slow . The material high bench seats were filthy and smelt like vomit and urine , floor was filthy . The only thing I couldn’t complain about were the cocktails which were lovely ,some of us left early as it was that bad and now today 18th July I have come down with a dodgy stomach and can’t stay off toilet . The management seriously need to sort this place out . Would never return if I could give zero rating I would . Anyone thinking of coming here for a good meal or night out don’t bother save your money and time 🤢🤢👎More

Hi Revolution is the place to go. Book the cocktail making its excellent. The staff door staff are brilliant. Enough dance space. You won't want to go on any where else.
