We really appreciate how Becky served us all during our stay in Revolution. She was pleasant. And always ready to serve. Our favourite was the XXX Chilli shot

Hello!

First of all, well done for taking on our XXX Chilli vodka shot! Very impressive indeed as it lives up to its name.
I have passed on your feedback to Becky and of course, she was thrilled!

Hope to see you back again soon to take on our 30 flavoured vodkas! Thanks for taking the time to come on here and leave us a review, we really love seeing customers feedback!

Kind regards
Elle

I was disappointed me and my boyfriend came here today (bank holiday Friday) we walk in and go to the bar, the staff fail to even acknowledge us for a good 5 minutes, not even an apology for the wait... no one else was even at the bar. We eventually sit down with our drinks, and have to clear our own table. We did order a second round as the drinks are good in all fairness and they take a further 20 maybe 30 minutes to actually make the drinks and serve us. I was ok with this, until my boyfriend spent £4 on chips...I could sneeze a bigger portion! he asked to return them and they refuse point blank and were happy to rip us off, fun one off but NEVER AGAIN!!! Don’t risk ordering the food you may end up needing a McDonald’s after, it’s tiny.

Hi there,

Thank you for coming on here to leave feedback. Positive or negative we appreciate it all.

Firstly, I am very sorry to hear that your visit without a doubt was not up to standards. We carry a lot of pride when it comes to our service and delivering a fun, welcoming environment, and as we failed to do this on this occasion, it does not go unnoticed.

Being Easter, we did not anticipate we would be as busy as we were earlier on the Friday, and absolutely accept that the service delivered to yourselves was not to Revolution standard.

I would love to rectify this with you and get some more details from you, and to do so I’d really appreciate if you could pop the site an email at cambridge@revolution-bars.co.uk.

Apologies again.

Kind regards
Elle

This is perhaps the bougiest place ever to take the name 'Revolution,' but hey--bougie is comfortable. The menu is diverse, with things for vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, people on a diet, and people indulging. The space is tactfully lit, warm, and family-friendly. The food was fresh and hot when it was delivered, and the wait staff was very happy for us to linger as long as we wanted. The location is also excellent, as it's just across the street from the Grand Arcade, so there's all the shopping you can stand, and right on the edge of the touristy old stuff in the city centre.

Hello!

Bougie is comfortable absolutely! We love just being a stones throw from the bustling city centre, as everyone needs a tipple and a comfy seat at the end of the day, if not a good plate of food!

Glad to hear you dived into some of our scrumptious food, catering for all dietary requirements is something we aim to do here, even with our drinks!

Hope to see you back again soon. Thanks for the review!

Regards,
Elle
