Description: Located in the heart of the Pennines, this loungey little bar and restaurant in Littleborough provides the perfect pitstop for weary sightseers and is a cosy spot popular with locals for intimate evening meals and superb Sunday roasts. The Waterside Restaurant and Bar has a stylish and comfortable interior decorated with chocolate brown sofas and high-backed leather booths for semi-private dining, and there is an al fresco terrace for sunny outdoor dining during the warmer months. Famous for its roasts, the kitchen at Waterside offers a variety of options from the minted lamb shoulder to the salted pork crackling and roasted Tunisian lemon chicken. Fish fans will also love the seafood selection ��� we love the smoked haddock lasagne with Atlantic shrimps and wilted spinach.

After trying for hours to find somewhare relativley local to Middleton for family visiting from down south we stumbled across the Waterside in Littleborough on the internet and it was far better than the reviews we had read. as a vegetarian it was so nice having a great choice of meals rather than the token veggie lasagne or cheese and onion pie. The presentation was something else far matching any restaurants I have visited before. All I would advise is that you book first.

We attended this restaurant for a family sunday lunch and although the food is hard to fault waiting 30 minutes for a starter and then a further 35 minutes for a main course is a little excessive in terms of waiting time.
If the restaurant had been totally full then it could be partly excused but it was only around two hires occupied.
We also thought 5,.65 for a glass of wine at the bar was a little excessive.

Thankyou very much for visiting our restaurant,

I am sorry that you had a small wait for your starters and main courses, it was an extremely busy day, and as all the food is prepared fresh from order it does take time... We also like to give a break between courses so not to rush you...however I did explain and apologise to you for your wait, as I believe that it was slightly longer than usual...

As you can see from previous reviews we do take a great pride in our family business , and I do hope that you return here...

Thanks again for your valued custom

Having just moved to the area two days previously, we were taking a stroll around Littleborough and decided to walk into The Waterside for a well deserved glass of wine. We were greeted with a very warm welcome and very warm smile. Our intension was purely to have one drink but after a few minutes we were made to feel extremely comfortable, so decided to stay a little longer, so much so we ended up having a three course dinner and a little more wine. The ambience was lovely, the food was as good from both the set menu and the a la carte. The service was excellent from ALL the staff. Another positive was the vino, on asking for a glass of red, we were pointed to the cheaper end of the wine list instead of having the dearer stuff pushed, the house Shiraz is as good a quality as you will get for restaurant prices.

So, highly recommended and both I and We will be calling back regulary.

My family have been to this restaurant on several occasions and are never disappointed, the staff are so friendly and service second to none! We love the steaks however I tried the lamb last week and again not disappointed. The sticky toffee pudding makes this restaurant worth going to if you are a pudding lover its so yummy!!!
