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.

“Slick surroundings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

There were 2 of us on a weds eve and unfortunately only us in the restaurant until our dessert, we were then joined by just 2 other diners. This was a little disappointing as it lacked atmosphere.
The restaurant itself is beautiful in terms of decor and attention to detail.
It's not cheap but is top class food!
We both chose pastas for our main, which is something I wouldn't normally. Plenty of king prawns and chicken in mine! And plenty of steak in the other!
Owner was friendly and helpful (assuming this was lisa)
Will be returning :-)

“Got To Try The Sunday Lunch.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

We visited here out of the blue as we had heard so much about the place. Lovely building - good location - nice decor - fab atmosphere - staff helpful and friendly - oh and the Sunday lunch was to die for. Great value for money - such a cosy place - love the open fire. The food was well presented and had plenty of flavour - all fresh produce - keep up the good wood - will be back.

“What a place !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Had one of the best meals I have ever had in here, it was just short of £90 for 2 with a few drinks, in other places it would usually be about £60 to £70 however the little extra was well worth it as I have to stopped talking about The Waterside since going

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Myself and my wife went here last weekend to celebrate a special occasion, as soon as we entered we were recognised by the owner and staff even though it has been quite a while since our last visit. The staff were always friendly and the service was excellent. We asked to change tables as ours was too close to bar area and they accommodated us straight away. The meal was served at correct times so as you was not rushed. I would highly recommend this restaurant even if it is not for special occasion

“Nice Saturday Evening Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Myself and my wife went for a meal here recently, to celebrate (or commiserate) the passing of another of my birthdays. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the meal was really nice. The lady owner came round to our table and checked that everything was o.k, and we assured her that it was. We sat at a very large table on a sort of semi-circle seat, this area being called a booth. A waitress comes and lights up the tea lights for you, but to be honest I think the lighting in the place could be brighter, and then we wouldn't need candles! Apart from that everything was great, although my wife's face did lose its colour when she got the bill:-)
