“Lovely setting, disappointing lunch!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

I was taken to lunch here by my Canadian relatives, assuring me what a great place to eat. After quite a long drive to get there, we arrived - what a disappointment!
The tables were dirty and not wiped until we sat down, not a good start.
We set about ordering our lunches to find that there was not much available for us to choose from - must have been a rush on! We ordered what was available but not what we actually wanted (in hindsight, we should have left at this point). After having one pitcher of Iced Tea and requesting a second, we were advised that there was no more was available. The lunch became like a comedy sketch - needless to say, we did not stop any longer than necessary!
On a positive note, the girl serving was very polite, even though she looked extremely embarassed, telling us what we couldn't have for lunch

“Beware!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

I last had a meal at Viamede in Summer 2010 which was quite enjoyable. We decided to take relatives visiting from the UK there on July 11th for lunch. It would have so much easier if the waitress told us what they did have rather than the trial and error of trying to order food and drink and being told, "we're out of that". A second round of ice tea was out too - none of that either. The tables were dirty. The food horrible. If this keeps up, it won't belong before the only sign of life at Viamede will be the "for sale" sign.

“Value for money - NOT”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2009

Havnt visited the pub since the refurbishment and was greatly surprised at how nice the place looked including the outside seating area. Unfortunately the table we had to sit at was broken and the bowl of chips that cost 1.95 probably contained one spud chopped up and were cold, the drink i had which was soda water and lime came in at a costly 1.20 whereas most pubs i visit the most im charged is 75p. On the whole not a nice experience and a place i will be avoiding.
