Revolution has been a staple in many peoples lives. At some point through your life you would've headed to Rev for a bev, a catch up with friends or to take full advantage of the sun in the beer garden. Revolution have always had a great food menu with something for everyone to enjoy, so when I was allocated them as one of my Restaurants to review, I was very happy!
With a two course lunch for £10 or a three course dinner for £20 - it's too good an offer to pass up.
With four starters on offer we actually decided on the same dish which was Sticky Chicken Skewers with a spicy asian glaze. We each got three skewers with grilled chicken covered in the glaze. It was just the right amount, it wasn't overly filling, which is good for a starter and it was seasoned well and had a nice kick and tang because of the spice from the asian glaze.
Other starters on offer were Harrissa Humous served with tortillas, Calamari with lemon and aīoli and then of course, the well known Revolution Nachos which I believe will be very popular.
With eight mains to choose from it was a toss up between the Skinny Blackened Chicken burger or the Half Roast Chicken for me. When it came down to it I went for the Glazed Half Roast Chicken served with fries, coleslaw and I opted for the BBQ chipotle sauce.
The portion size was very good, I mean it was half a chicken so it couldn't not be! The only thing that could of improved this dish was if the skin was a bit crispier just to add a little crunch but other than that I was pleased with my choice.
Now are you ready for this? Sam's main of choice was the Smokin' Bacon Burger. A beef burger with smoked cheddar, chorizo ketchup, smokinnaise, streaky bacon, onions and wotsits. You read right, cheesy wotsits in the bun. Sam was so happy with his burger, the crispness of the bacon with the crunch of the wotsits was a great combination. Served with a large side of fries and aīoli he was extremely satisfied with his choice.
Other mains on offer are three other burgers boasting different toppings to satisfy the tastebuds, a superfood salad for a lighter option, a Sri Lankan Chicken curry which is full of coconut, lemongrass and coriander and Steak Frites topped with garlic butter - a wealth of options.
With two desserts on offer we went for one each. I chose the Baked New York Cheesecake with crème fraîche and a strawberry. The wedge of cheesecake was delicious, very thick and creamy and had a sweet delicate biscuit base. The crème fraîche wasn't for me, the sourness didn't appease my tastebuds but to be fair the cheesecake was more than enough for me.
The warm Brownie with vanilla ice cream is how Sam ended his meal. Made with columbian chocolate it was very rich and moreish. The ice cream melted on top and oozed over the brownie making a river through it - it looked so good I just had to taste it myself.
Revolution have put a menu together that has plenty of options available to meet all dietary requirements and needs. They really have a great menu and they have more than enough cocktails to choose from to compliment your meal, if you're a gin fan then I recommend the Appleberry Bramble, a very sweet tipple - nice and refreshing.
