Fox - you didn't know this pub went 5 years ago?

Nor the Crown and Grapes (Sutton) in the last couple of weeks.

Keep up - don't post, or go back to prison!

More crap from the multiuser.
Hes having a bad day after an imaginary pub crawl with his imaginary friends.
If he carries on being a naughty boy his mum will stop him using his computer for his imaginary nights out.

Posted as closed over 5 years ago on here. Foz finds it hard tp keep up!

Some assistance. The Crown burned down at the weekend - and The Grapes closed not long before.

In 2018!¡

Revolution closed down. It became Rift and Co. But that closed about 2 years ago.
The Old Bank across the road is a decent pub.

I have been here a few times over a number of years and it just gets worse and worse. I remember at one point they had a live glam rock band and a few others which was an excellent but then all that disappeared and was replaced by a DJ playing the usual crap.
The staff are a mix, i have been there when they just ignore you and carry on their conversation, other times they have been pleasant and chatty. I went in recently and they were serving everything in pastic beakers, not a good sign. Think that will be my last trip to revs.

kicked off again last weekend.. when will they sort this place out?... new door staff are needed also

Atrociously bad. Not staffed enough so be prepared to wait 8 mins at the bar on a quiet weekday evening. Littered with empty glasses and fighting off-duty staff. And this place is an utter rip-off.

what is the deal with the "freshen up" people.. why cant you just have a piss in peace....

My mate has a weak bladder and it costs him an extra £20 in toilet trips when we go to this place

I don't know the bars in Sutton very well, but I did enjoy knocking back a few in Revolution not so long ago.
I did get rather frightened though when a guy (a stranger) at the bar bought us drinks - I was there with two girlfriends. My mates drank them and they turned out to be shots of chili vodka - yuk. I had hidden mine, pretending that I'd drunk it :)
But you don't know what a stranger is going to put in your drink these days. As a bar, I thought Revolution had a great cocktail list, and no, if you are a beer monster, you probably wouldn't appreciate it!

I have worked in 3 big clubs/pubs in Sutton including Revolutions. I have to say it is the best club that I have worked in. It was a great place to work, fun every night of the week, and now to go out in. The other clubs have suffered from the opening of Revolutions, just look at the new layout of 'Chicagos' and the new music in 'New York'. I would suggest it to everyone, brill!!!!

what is the deal with the fat doorman??.. he lets in under 21 looking girls without checking ID but then refuses 2 blokes who are clearly old enough...f**king pathetic...

as for the bar.. its full of idiots and the women tend to think they are something special...

Unless ur name's Wayne, Gary or Jay. You think you're in a boy band and you are the Guv'nor of Sutton i'd avoid this place. Went there a couple of Saturdays ago. Too much attitude. I went down the road to Long Island Iced Tea Bar and had a wicked night. Haven't been there for ages. The qeue wasn't huge but inside was very busy. People had been saying it had got quite young but it seemed fairly well balanced to me. Only saw a couple of fights but they were dealt with quickly (door team aint lost there touch). Doesn't look as nice inside as Revolution but at least you can enjoy urself without having to worry about who not to look at. Spoke to one of the bouncers and they said the place is gonna get done up soon.

Quite possibly a bice bar down stairs with prices you expect. Upstairs is the loudest,crappest place. All the blokes are called wayne or gary and still think they are gangsters or the very least a hard man.
The girls still look like they have been dipped in super glue and fallen into the display cabinet at Warren James. I only go there unless its mates birthday etc. Even then i hate it.

As the head of the glorious Soviet states for approximately twenty years until my untimely (but glorious) death, I expected a vodka themed bar called revolutions to be a communist workers paradise, where the proletariat could earn drinks through productive action to promote the well being of the state and the people. Instead I found a filthy capitalist venue where aristocratic fat-cat imperialists exploit workers in order to charged the people excessive amounts of capital for those drinks. There was even a cocktail which seemed very similar to that named after the hated tsarist counter-revolutionaries, “White Russians” . I feel as betrayed as my close friend and once joint party leader Lenin, when I exiled him to Siberia

If there's one thing that makes me laugh on this site is the people who obviously enjoy a pint of beer but can't tell a pub for what it is from the outside. Revolutions and many other places in Sutton blatantly don’t cater for the bitter drinker but for the younger generation who want to go out and meet other people of their own age and have a good time. If that involves drinking Alcho pops and vodka shots then good luck to them. That's not my scene anymore but I don't begrudge other people doing the things I used to. If you want to sit in a pub drinking bitter while smacking your lips and saying "DAMNED FINE PINT DAMNED FINE PINT" at the top of your voice whilst twirling your over sized moustache around the yellowed ends of your fingers then go to a pub that caters for that sort of drinker and stop going to places that blatantly wont be your cup of tea/pint of dog bolter just so you can complain on this site about how young the clientele are. Each to their own I suppose but I tend to not go in pubs I don’t like the look of from the outside. Here endeth the lesson

This is not a pub but must be considered more as a spirits bar. It will interesting to see how long the novelty of flavoured vodka keeps Revolution in business before yet another re-birth and change of name. Nothing wrong with vodka (I always keep Stolichnaya with added chilli in the freezer) but will it last the course?
Serious beer drinkers don't bother to come here.

A teenage hell hole with music so loud even I, a seasoned Motorhead follower, had to wince. Granted it's aiming at relieving the cream of the local yoot of their hard earned so I'm far from their target audience but adults beware, unless you're the victim of a cruel medical experiment, avoid this place like the plague.

good night out apart from the long ques to get in and the over priced drinks if you've got time and money to spare you'll love it

Never seen any trouble in or around here although I'm never there when it closes as I've retired home for my whore licks (oops sorry meant horelicks)or gone to one of the pubs with live music as that's more my thing. I Like this place when it's busy but not packed as it seems to have a nice atmosphere about it. Got to say the lovely ladies behind the bar add to the appeal. My one criticism would be that they need to get some main stream beers/lagers in as the choice is a bit limited and pricy without a loyalty card and the ones they have are on the strong side so after a while in here you start to feel a bit worse for wear as you tend to forget you're not drinking weaker main stream lagers/beers. Of course the best thing about this place is the fact that it's not the Litten tree any more and all that went with that place. This place gets an eight just for that.

A good example of a venue who's security staff do not search people on entrance or check for ID. The result of this is an average of 4 maybe 5 ambulances outside every Friday and Saturday night. I don't think i've ever seen an ambulance outside Long Islander. You do the math! Looks impressive inside but it'ds full of wannabe hardmen...

Not bad at all, be warned though it gets busy at the weekend and the que for the bar is beyond hope.

Classy place for Sutton to be honest, nice layout and good choice of drinks.

Doorman are friendly and always say hello to me, well worth checking out...upstairs is a dance floor mainly... although i dont dance it can be a good hunting ground for women

Opened at the weekend, the inside is a testament to what the Litten tree could have been. The inside is done out in a restaurant and bar combined with the two fairly well separated. It looks like it’s had a fair amount of money thrown at it. The major point with this place is that it seems to be aiming for clientele a rung above the usual. This is emphasised by the fact that only premium lagers are sold on tap or in bottles. There’s no Fosters, Kronenbourg. You can get Stella if you class that as main stream I suppose. It is a bit pricey but you can pay £3 for a loyalty card that gets you discounts on certain drinks. There’s a pool table but I suspect there might not be for much longer as I was told they’d already had some minor problems at the weekend and to be honest it seemed out of place in this sort of pub/bar. They have bouncers at the week end as is to be expected and they adhere to a pretty strict dress code, no trainers or sports gear after a certain time which is fare enough really. The only thing I think they got wrong was the fact that they had bouncers working Sunday night and were turning away people with trainers, seems a bit strange for a Sunday. Overall a good place but haven’t been there when it’s busy so will reserve judgement till then.
