Description: Located on the banks of the canal, directly opposite the Ibis Hotel, The Waterside Restaurant and Bar is one of Shipley’s best-kept secrets.In its idyllic location, the restaurant offers a range of dishes to suit every taste and appetite. The food is locally sourced and high quality and the dishes are freshly cooked to order. With the opportunity to eat and drink ‘alfresco’ in the heated covered courtyard, there really is no better place to dine out in the area.In addition the Waterside also holds comedy night on every third Monday in the month.

Came for dinner here in July and it was amazing! Hospitable and friendly staff, and truly yummy food. Would definitely go back if we came to the area again.

After a beautiful bike ride down the canal with my partner, a surprise meal awaited me at the waterside restaurant. The food we had was amazing and the staff were extremely friendly. Even the dessert was spectacular. We sat out overlooking the canal and it felt very special. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Laura, Thank you for excellent review. As you say, we are ideally placed for those walking or cycling down the canal. We are really pleased to hear it was a great surprise and that you were made to feel special. Thanks also for the recommendation. Being slightly hidden we have to rely on word of mouth. Hope to see... More

Last Sunday was perfect! We ate outside as it was warm and the terrace is beautiful, full of flowers and we watched the longboats go by. The food was lovely and the staff were fab. All this for less than £10 a head (plus wine obviously!). Thank you so much for another great day!

Hi Becks, Thanks for your review. We are so pleased we delivered a perfect Sunday for you, although we can’t take too much credit for the weather. Sunday lunch is great value without compromising on quality. It was great to welcome you back again. See you soon. More
