Booked a meal, to be told the kitchen was closed even though we had confirmed with them several times that we were arriving at 8:30pm. They said it was our own fault and should of read the website. Found the opening times at the very bottom of the page. Was not clear at all and very poor customer service.

I had booked a table for my birthday but we had been squeezed into a corner as 3/4 of the venue had been cornered off due to a private birthday party so we were unable to move / dance.
I would also like to mention that they are very dated on their not every disability is visible! I suffer with osteoarthritis and struggle with stairs and I have had a total colectomy and we were warned by the staff not to use the disabled toilet. I felt this was very invasive so it was at this point we left to another venue.

I booked a table for 6 of us for my birthday and we were so looked after by the Revival team! They decorated the table with balloons and a big happy birthday sign and arranged with my friends to have the live singer sing happy birthday when they brought my cake out which was so sweet. The cocktails were amazing as they always are and we had such a fantastic night. It was made so special but the thoughtful and attentive staff so thank you so much !!!

We were on a hen party and the staff were very aggressive and rude to us, which spoilt the night. I would not recommend for a party of large gathering. Such a shame because it’s a great place, and has a nice vibe with the live music.
Really disappointed ☹️

I went in after hearing it had new owners. Wow, what a difference. Decor is lovely. Staff were really friendly. My daughter enjoyed Mac and cheese while me and my husband had burgers. All our food was lovely. This place is just what Hinckley needed. Great cocktails, lovely and cosy, family friendly that does food but then becomes and evening hotspot. What more could you want. Will definitely be back.

Really disappointed as we came here for the “special” cocktails, but none of the ingredients were available- for example I ordered the candy floss cocktail- I forget it’s proper name- this was brought to me without any candy floss as they’d ran out (they told me this only when bringing it out having been made) and was still charged £9.50 despite it now being just a bog standard cocktail. I also ordered the “night at the movies” cocktail which is pictured as coming with popcorn, in a tall glass with ice cream in and whiskey. They had no ice cream and the drink came in a small martini glass with whipped cream in it instead, no popcorn? Still charged £9.50 despite it being a really basic cocktail that should’ve included the things listed for the extortionate price.

We originally booked to come for food and drinks at 8:15, but when calling to confirm the reservation I was told that the chef finishes at 8. I said okay, if I change my reservation to 7:45 can we have food? They said yes. When we came in we ordered our courses really quickly because we knew this was the case. The waitress came back a few minutes later and said we could only have one course as the chef had “an appointment”. This was not stated to us on the phone, and the starter we ordered was nachos, so not exactly much extra cooking? The puddings could also have surely just been warmed up by another member of staff, not the chef. Altogether really disappointed and won’t be coming again as it was expensive and awful- can’t fault the waitresses though as they were very pleasant.

Poor service, long wait even tho it was quiet, flys around us while eating, overpriced on cocktails. Kept turning the music up louder, staff chilling at the bar, 1 persons food came out 10/15 mins before the other people’s food. Left earlier than expected as wasn’t worth the disappointing service.

It took over half an hour for staff to come and take our food order even with the red block up. Staff were in a group talking or serving the larger group on the table next to us, they had at least two orders before anybody came over to us. Food was OK but nothing special for the price.

The service and drinks were great as usual but the music was not up to the normal standard.the performer sang outdated songs and unfortunately his vocals did meet the previous performers we have seen at revival.at one stage he stopped mid song, said he’d gone wrong and started again. Very disappointing

Came here for my birthday brunch with boyfriend and family.

The service was great, all the staff were lovely.

The drinks were amazing!!! So many choices and incredible cocktails… slightly dangerous as I want to try them all.

The food was delicious and portion sizes were great!! It didn’t take long to come either.

The interior… wow! It’s beautiful. Even the toilets lol

Good was amazing! Well priced and good portions, me and my partner both struggled to finish our meals. Cocktails and drinks were so good. Drinks are a Little pricey but not many other places to can go for a decent drink in hinckley so we were happy to pay it still. Live music was also great and staff were very helpful and friendly all evening. Would definitely go back there again.

Cocktail disappointing after looking forward to trying ir. I had the signature cocktail which was £10 and small for money and no edible glitter as described

Singer was on but too loud then to be able to sit and chat to friends so we left and went to Tarro

Didn’t eat but food looked lovely

Brilliant atmosphere and even better drinks. Staff were great and very attentive. We were held up at another restaurant and called up to let Rivival know we would be late and they kept our table for 45 minutes - greeted us on arrival and gave us the option of where we wanted to sit. In such a busy bar it would have been easy for them to let the table go, but we greatly appreciated them saving it for us and we had a fantastic night!!!
Hoping to return for their new residency drag next month

Lovely place, atmosphere was fab. Great singer on. Cocktails menu was really good. Bit pricey but happy to pay this for the place. Only downfall is the wait for cocktails. Looking at a 25-30 minute wait for cocktails which was disappointing

Our visit to Revival was quite disappointing.

The service was extremely slow and our waitress wasn't well trained and couldn't answer any of our queries.

Considering it was a Saturday afternoon, it was quite quiet but did get busier when we were getting ready to leave at around 5pm.

My friends had some nacho's that were £7.95 and although they said they were quite tasty, the portion size was small.

Overall, it is unlikely that we will be going back any time soon.

Our booking was only for cocktails so I cannot comment on the food. The drinks service was very good, the cocktails were well made and didn't take too long (would definitely recommend the raspbery Mojito!). The toilets were very clean and generally the bar looks so much better after its refurb, a much nice place to visit than previously!

Kids plates too hot to touch and not a Sunday lunch option for kids.. cauliflower cheese was missed off.. Sunday dinner veg was not the best.. peas and carrots as veg is very basic. Sunday dinner is a meal you shouldn’t get wrong. Would come back for drinks again but not for food
