“Amazing Christmas Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Brilliant, as always. I love this bar. The cocktails are good, the new decor-make-over is lovely and fresh, and the food is always fab. We do work lunches there, and have used it for a Christmas bash two years in a row. The cocktails masterclass is well worth doing if you have a group - fun, funny, and delicious results. Just make sure you're not the designated driver that night ;-)

“Just plain bad...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

Went to Revolution in Central Bristol and was somewhat taken aback by the decor - it looked like an explosion in a shabby chic outlet store and was garish and quite odd.

My friend found a seat and was met by a friendly waiter whilst I went to the bar. The bar staff were rude, ignored me and seemed genuinely disinterested. After paying £8 for too ice cold pints of ale (note to bar, this isn't a good thing, it should really be tepid to make it drinkable), we stuck around just long enough to decide this place wasn't for us and left.

I'm sure it's not always like this and perhaps the guys were having an off-day, but when discussing business with a new client the last thing you want to do is hear them spend 15 minutes moaning about the venue!

“Better than Expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Had booked as a group and pre ordered our food. Staff very friendly, but a pretty long wait for both main course and dessert considering everyone had pre ordered. Main course of Moroccan bean burger was lovely. Cheesecake for dessert tasted good, but was much too heavy going. Vodka shots that were provided as part of the meal deal were not to my taste, too sickly and sweet. Thought the cost of £14.95 per head was quite expensive for what you actually got. Lovely touch was framed pictures on the table with our friends name and his birthday on it.
