Been to Velvet again tonight and there has been a reunion of a lot of the old staff. Rob, Dan and Mark are back like a blast from the past and it shows. Service is fast and back to its best and the food was as good as it used to be. The staff all seem to have a spring... More

Visited here for the first time on the evening of Saturday 4th 2017. My partner and I both enjoyed the interior design, mixing the plush furniture with the rustic beams and pipework and of course the 'walk of faith' over the fish tank on the stairs as you enter! When we arrived for 7:30 it was a little quiet but... More

Not generally one for posting reviews but I'm hoping the owner of velvet gets to see this. Always been a massive advocate of velvet but not any more. The worst roast dinner ever, the "roast" beef was a very thin slice of what looked like fried beef and tasted burnt. Roast potatoes very hard in the middle... veg tasted old.... More

On a Friday evening after a full working week what is better than to relax with an excellent cocktail, reasonably priced good food and great company. The first two were definitely provided by Velvet. Over the years this has become a favourite meeting place for myself and friends and nothing has changed in fact the food is now better. Excellent... More
