“Location,price and quality all more than adequate for a mid day meal”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Just been to Via for the second time in a month or two and really enjoyed the visit. I ate alone;ordering a Mushroom/Cheese suet pudding with chips peas and gravy. To go with the meal I got a small glass of rose wine. The chips and peas were kind of what you would expect but the suet pudding was really tasty,packed with mushrooms,onions and cheese. Quite dark gothic surroundings with elaborate chandeliers and plenty of hidey holes to enjoy a bit of privacy. Stylish,laid back,friendly,value for money at not much more than a tenner for my meal and drink.lots of two for a tenner meals available mon to thurs too. If you're going to Canal St soon,I'd advise you to choose Via for all the reasons I've just stated above!!

Reviewed October 2, 2013

After ordering the food it arrived after nearly 20mins and was seriously over cooked and failing heavily on taste

“Very nice pub”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We came here for a drink on a Saturday afternoon. It was quite busy, especially outside where they have chairs and tables. The drinks were reasonably priced.

We came here again later in the evening and the place was buzzing. Enjoyed every minute here.

“a good mix”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Probably the consistently busiest of the Canal Street venues and a popular venue for gay, straight, indifferent people. A friendly relaxed venue
