Really liked this place. Lived in Cheltenham for many years but never been until this evening. Very nice, clean and polite staff. Will be returning.

Decided not to cook and take advantage of their 50% off food on Mondays. As we also hold their privilege card, it was BOGOF on their cocktails. So 2 cocktails each and 2 mains, bill came to less than £30! Service was personal and friendly. Food - I had the skinny burger (bourbon bad boy) with an extra burger and... More

Went to Revolution Bar in Cheltenham as a group of 22 for a Christmas meal and drinks. The drinks were the drinks but the food / waiting at tables was shocking. We were the only people in the bar so no excuse for being busy, there were plenty of staff working so no excuse there either. My starter was hot... More

During a day trip to Cheltenham we called in for a lunchtime cocktail , service slow. Cocktails over priced for small portions. Ordered lunch took ages to come even though we were only one of 3 tables full. Food was cold when it got to us as it had stood waiting on the stand at the kitchen for previous 5... More

I am always keen to go here for food but always forget how terrible the food is! On one occasion my friends meal came out stone cold! On telling the waiter this he suggested that he could if she's wanted to put it in the microwave to warm it up, this was after we had seen it stand on the... More

Me and my partner popped in for a drink about 5 ish. We're not from the area and was a Wednesday so asked bar staff where would be busy later on. They of course recommended coming back there as student night so will be busy. We returned about 10pm to be told we were not welcome as we are not... More

Whilst Revolution may be a good bar, it certainly is not a great eatery. Myself and my partner had lunch here in late October. We were welcomed by friendly staff who seated us at the table of our choosing. I chose steak and chips whilst my partner had a bean burger. We shared a plate of 'sharing nachos' for starter....

Visited Revolution bar on Wednesday. I was well surprised by the new food menu . We had a few small plates ( goat's cheese bon bons were just lovely, especially hummus ) + mains. The biggest surprise was - the new menu is like a mixture of different flavours. If you love curry, Italian food, or BBQ ribs - come... More

As we were taken to our seat by a lovely waitress, we saw 2 tables send their food back for under cooked bloody chicken! When our food came, my chicken was burned to a crisp and inedible. I hope this was a bad day for the sake of their future business!! To be fair, the waitresses were excellent and we... More

Visited on a busy Saturday afternoon and was greeted by a young waitress who seated us and bought us water - without even asking. Definitely needed with the warm weather. They seemed a little under staffed for the number of people eating but the two waitresses serving us were so lovely! Food came quickly and was delicious! We cleared our... More
