Revolution Bar (or as I still call it, ‘vodka revs’) may be know for it’s delectable flavoured vodka shots and indulgent cocktails, but did you know they pride themselves on great food too? On Monday, me and my other half were treated to a meal from the brand new menu- Massive Tastes- to see what we thought. Read on to see my review of the food, the service and the atmosphere.

At first glance of the menu, I was already thinking with my tastebuds. Tantalising starters, sandwiches, burgers, mains and sides, with a large selection of desserts too. Unfortunately, there were no vegan options, but a few vegetarian choices here and there, which Jack and I opted for; the halloumi with chips, and the bean burger with sweet potato fries. The bean burger was delicious, with sweet potato and black beans, served in a really soft bun with humous and vodka salsa. Of course, as always, the stars of the show were the fries, with the most perfect crunch around the outside and soft fluffy sweet ‘tato on the inside. HEAVEN.
The halloumi was cooked to perfection and fried in beer batter (yes, you heard me right!). It was so flavoursome and filling, the perfect alternative to a traditional fish supper. Served with mushy peas and tartar sauce (which I hate but Jack gobbled up!) and presented really nicely, it was definitely a good choice, 100% recommend.
For sides, we went for a nice green salad with house dressing, and the very inventive ‘cauli-slaw’ (cauliflower coleslaw!). Both delicious, but definitely not needed as we were so full from the massive portions that we took half of them home for midnight snacks/breakfast!
The service was the highlight of our night. A gorgeous, friendly waitress gave us some great chat and basically catered to our every need, it was fabulous. The other staff were all smiles, and our food and drinks were served really fast and piping hot. So no qualms at all there, you are guaranteed a pretty great experience at Revolution Bar. Good food, good atmosphere, great drinks.
