My partner and I stopped at velvet for a quick drink and bite to eat one day midweek. The street was quite busy as it was a warm evening but we managed to get a table outside easily.

Ultimately over-priced which doesn't help with non helpful waiter (tall slim clean shaven with blond bits on the flick), slow service and generally uninterested in customers! Well I will spend my £ elsewhere in future
