Throughout the past decade and then some, Velvet restaurant’s popularity has continued to increase, with a mixed clientele of locals and visitors to the city co-mingling to create an inclusive ambiance contributory to its huge success. A warm and friendly welcome awaits, once you have taken the ‘walk of faith’ over the glass fish tank cleverly set into the entrance stairs. 

The Restaurant matches its memorable design features with a combination of excellent food and eclectic music style and is open throughout the day for a soup and sandwich lunch, small plate selection, a pizza or a twist on classic British comfort food.  Weather permitting, customers also have the choice to dine al fresco, canalside.

Why should people come along?

Its a brilliant way to end the weekend on a high.
In the summer we are outside in the sun by the canal yet in the winter months we are inside all cosy with candle light.
It is the perfect way to wind down and if you feel like it end with a Whitney classic or even bring out your inner Tina #ProudMary

The food is brilliant plus it's happy hour at the same time as Sunday Sessions. Even the crew partake as backing dancers and so its an amazing vibe. Everyone can come and have some fun!
