We go there for lunch quite often and it is one of my favourite places to eat. Everything is great - food, service, atmosphere, value for money, imaginative menu items and specials

Visited Velvet and Vanilla for the third time in December and it was brilliant again. Delicious fresh food, great service and a cosy, welcoming atmosphere. Plan to come back with a group of friends for Tapas in the New Year!

Went here for a meal on Sunday evening and had their homemade pizza - excellent food and very welcoming and warm service. Went home the next day or would have eaten here again.
