No Hassle amidst the Quiet Revolution
The Revolution in Hassel Street, Newcastle is not just a music bar for the younger 'in crowd' at night time. If it is a spacious and quiet dining experience you are looking for in the day, Revolution can offer that discreet and private moment to yourself; with some nice food to boot.
Amidst the Cuban revolutionary theme, the Slow cooked beef & buttery mash priced at £8.95 is a little expensive but a nice treat.
Although, it was a little disappointing that the dish was not served on a huge platter with a selection of veg, it was still well worth the money.
Succulent beef with baby onions; and French beans and carrot as an accompaniment, the only worry with this dish was whether you would still feel hungry afterwards.

It is always disappointing that eateries in England (Revolution being a national company with premises all over the country) do not bring the sliced French bread out as an appetizer like they do on the continent. This touch always puts pay to the fear that you just might still be hungry after paying close on a tenner.
However, the triangular slice of pastry on the top extinguished that slight but nagging doubt, whereas the total portion was just enough (for most of us anyway).
It was a relief that when I had forgotten to say that I don't want gravy (having fallen for that one before when they drown your food in brown water and animal fat) the meal just included the right amount; gravy is a sauce you know.
I do not usually do desserts or have a drink with a meal when dining out so that kept the price down to a minimum.
There is more detailed information regarding Revolution on their website where amusingly the address records as Hassle Street instead of Hassel Street, Newcastle.
Oh the delights of having a proof reader.
