Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

When we arrived the restaurant and bar were practically empty so we were seated straight away. One of our water glasses had something we couldn’t even figure out what it was in it, however it was not good. We were a group of 5 and...we ordered ordered starters and mains, we were sat waiting and eating for nearly 3 hours which is crazy. Alongside this one of our groups starters and mains came out wrong. However our vist was saved completely by Breece (I believe) he was on a cover shift from Revolution Cuba and he was AMAZING! Nothing was too much for him he did everything he could to make our vist better and was just a joy to be served by. He really is a credit to the company.More

I'll start with the positive... The food when it actually arrived was pretty decent, nothing spectacular, but it's £2.99. We placed an order on the app at 12:04, the food took 39 minutes to arrive, they weren't particularly busy either. The gentleman who brought the...food over dropped some of the food on my Loungefly bag, not great either. I had to ask for the dessert to go as we had to leave. I have to say we've visited previously on a Saturday for drinks and it was great. So maybe just a one off?More

My daughter and I were lucky to be gifted a voucher for afternoon tea by my son… afternoon tea with a difference….. Prosecco, slider burgers, loaded fries, jalopeno poppers, chicken stripes, followed by a trio of desserts. Served by the lovely Inez, who was so...friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was really lovely and the food and drink delicious. We would highly recommend it.More

This place should be avoided at all cost. Had to pre order our meals. Sat at table waited 45 minutes for starter. This was all wrong and we actually ended up with one order totally different. Then waited and waited for the main. This turned...up 1.45 mins after being seated , cold , some overdone burgers with a gluten free roll , very small portion of overcooked chips and a small spoonful of coleslaw. I’m not even gluten free !! The best is yet to come. Over three hours, yes three hours, we still hadn’t got our pre-ordered desserts. Hence why I say this place is abysmal, The ladies toilets, yes ladies, was floating in urine you really needed wellies it was that bad. Dirty glasses, filthy sinks. So bad. Seeing the state of the place I wonder what the kitchens are like. Never would I eat there again.More

We booked to go here at 6:30pm, and got an email confirmation. Turned up and the snooty waitress said the kitchen is closed, and tried to blame us for their error. Don’t let someone book a table if you the kitchen is closed, and at...least communicate the closed kitchen on your social media. This Revolution has to have the worst service - and the worst toilets. Really let’s the Revs brand downMore

Absolutely shocking experience place was empty , we ordered a Asian bowl and chicken wrap it took 45 minutes for the food to appear with no apology from staff for long delay , the Asian bowl was like a bag of lettuce thrown in a...bowl with no pineapple as stated on menu the wrap again was more lettuce than chicken and no slaw as menu stated when we paid and asked why these things were missing the barmaid just said are you sire that's what should be in there .

I was out Saturday night enjoying a few drinks with my friends when I over heard a doorman outside the entrance saying that he just grabbed someone by their throat and dragged them out the venue for no reason. this isn't something that someone in...his position should be saying. he was a big bold guy, maybe the head doorman as he was wearing a black shirt instead of a white shirt like the rest of the others. this shocked me and my friends hearing this being said by someone who should be keeping us (customers) safe. this has definitely changed our view of this place if this is the type of behavior from the security.More

We made a booking for a week before Christmas for a large table. The booking was made months in advance, confirmation received etc. We were celebrating 3 birthdays and the end of a serious illness treatment. We are not local so booked minibuses and other...tables to make the most of the day. We received a call very close to the date to say they had to cancel as they had no space to accommodate us. No explanation, no apology. In breach of their own terms and conditions. The booking was a week before Christmas so, given the very short notice, we were unable to find anywhere else and had to cancel. Staff member was very rude on the phone and to date I have not received a response to my email asking for an explanation. Would not recommend.More

Made a booking for a large group in advance for a birthday bottomless brunch. I had also placed a deposit down for the occasion just for the booking to be cancelled 3 days before with no excuse or reason whatsover. Absolute joke ruined the occasion...as it was too late to find somethig elsewhere. Go elsewhere if you want your booking not to be worthless and your event ruined. Joke of a company.More

Really disappointed with the choice of drinks included on the Bottomless Brunch menu (not having been on one before I didn't know this beforehand) and you only have 90 mins so when the service is slow you don't get to have more than a couple...of rounds. There was more Prosecco on the table but isn't what I was drinking! The toilets were in a really bad state and obviously not checked regularly by staff, no hand towels, no toilet roll, and that was late afternoon before it got really busy. Maybe they were understaffed that day as they can't be everywhere but I won't be rushing back. On a positive note the food was great and the staff were friendly.More
