A great pub on Canal Street in Manchester, with friendly staff and excellent meals too. Eat indoors or outdoors if you want to cruise guys go by, or girls if that's your taste ! Prices on drinks were good and food prices on par with most other pubs in the area, however the Via, is a real charming pub in... More

If you want the world's worst food, you've come to the right place. Burnt burgers, incinerated steaks and cardboard chips are the order of the day. Thank god the prices are pretty cheap as you wouldn't want to pay much more for the privilege. Great place for a drink though, as long as you don't mind the massive crowds on... More

Food wasn't great to be honest, i felt there was a taste of stale oil of the food, was a fairly simple dish so it should have been tasty. On the day I ate loud music was playing at the venue which is ok if was just a pub, but not if you are serving food aswell. Also i thought... More

I went to Via for the first time last night and instantly fell in love with the place. The decor and atmosphere is lovely, dimmed lights and secluded corners. The staff are lovely, very friendly. Much of the decor is creatively constructed from recycled wood from old churches and some of the seats are simply stunning. There's a good mix... More
