I am confident that my vegetarian burrito won't get up in the middle of the night and drink my blood - it has a wooden stake through the middle. It is also very tasty - with lovely side dishes.
Revolution Bar Leeds is great in summer - even late into the evening they open the big doors and let the kids evening in. It's always full, which it certainly deserves, always buzzing with life.
Definitely worth a repeat visit

Monday has a 50% off all burgers, mains, pizzas, wraps, flatbread and sandwiches. I ordered the fried chicken wrap and a blackcurrent and soda. Motown tunes in the background and not many customersm perfect for a chat and laptop work

We arrived to a deserted Revolution 41 Cookridge Street Leeds LS2 3AW Tuesday lunchtime. Revolution have changed the menu and the new layout and choice it is so disappointing and more so if you can actually work out what is what on the various menus. The Lunch for a £5 choose a small plate and side dish for only £5 is definitely small and certainly small portions enough for a rabbit. We were not alone in our conclusion as the customers on the table next to us made a complaint about the portion size to be told that it is the correct size 'half a packet of mixture'. My fried chicken wrap £6.95 was also disappointing. My previous chicken and bacon wrap at McDonalds had been much tastier and cheaper at £1.99. So it is Goodbye Revolution what has happened? Never mind the staff and service which was lack lustre and no personality. As for the chef maybe you should get a job elsewhere instead of complaining at your work load as it wasn't busy when we attended Revolution. There was more fizz in my glass of Coke and not at Revolution.
