This Friday evening we had a rare treat where Big A was away for the weekend with Brownies (at Butlins eekkk!!) and Little K went for a sleepover at Nanny’s. Hubby and I wanted somewhere to go for a meal and a few drinks *date night*
We have eaten at many of the restaurants in Norwich so wanted to try somewhere new. After speaking to a friend she suggested Revolution. I took a browse on their site to discover they have 50% off food in January WINNER!
We booked a table for 7pm after taking Benji for a walk to wear him out (puppy guilt for leaving him home alone). We were shown to our table which had our reservation card on it, the restaurant part of Revolution was lovely with hanging bird cages and dangling light bulb lights above our heads. The decor was stylish and there was a really lovely ambience about the area.
Hubby and I both had steak and chips. It was delicious, much nicer than we expected from a bar/drinking venue. We bought a revolution card for £3 to take advantage of the 50% off food offer and also the 2 for 1 cocktails offer. When we were presented with the revolution card it was in a box – in the box was a pair of Boxers! Tacky but fun at the same time! (Hubby was secretly pleased). The card gives you lots of offers via email, including money off, 2 for 1, lots of great deals to ensure you return.
We enjoyed 2 steak and chips, I had 4 cocktails & hubby had 2 x double JD and coke and the bill came to £43 we felt this was very reasonable and had a lovely evening, as it got later the lights slowly dimmed which also added to the atmosphere. The music was typical bar music but at a level so you could still hear each other talk which was bonus.
We then enjoyed the above 6 vodka shots, they have a menu of 30 flavours including some unusual ones such as Birthday cake which was rather strange! I loved the pear drop shot it was delicious and accurately tasted like pear drops.
The cocktails were both tasty and beautifully presented. The bubblegum daiquiri actually had flying saucers in the top – be warned you may get brain freeze!
The lady who served us was attentive and worked very hard to serve all the tables in the food area herself without much help from other staff. We would definitely return, in fact we are going again with friends in February.
Check out their website for pictures of their meals – I forgot to take a picture of my meal as was eager to eat! https://www.revolution-bars.co.uk/bar/norwich/food-menu/
