Since first opening in December 2017, Church Street’s Revolution has sought to be true to its name, shaking up the local scene with a stylish and contemporary restaurant, dining and cocktail bar experience.
While part of a chain, it takes its responsibility as a contributor to the local economy very seriously – as emphasised since reopening on September 1.
“We have a team of 15 amazing people, but we are trying to recruit where we can to create opportunities for local people who have lost their jobs in tough times for many industries,” Ryan Turner, sales manager, said.
The firm also supports the homeless charity Shelter, but after five months’ lockdown the first priority was enticing customers back to a safe environment.
“We reopened just as Eat Out to Help Out ended, so the company decided to keep the scheme going for our customers. Through September, we’re offering a full 50 per cent off food and soft drinks,” he said.
“The most important challenge for everyone in our industry is making sure customers feel safe and want to visit, and we feel we have gone above and beyond. People have waited such a long time and sacrificed so much to keep themselves and others safe.
“With updated measures and guidelines in place, they can visit and enjoy themselves again. The feedback received has been fantastic.”
