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.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have been here on number of occasions, but this Sunday was the first time I went with one of my child, just me and my little one. As ever we had excellent service in a smart and comfortable restaurant. The food was fabulous and the children's meal looked great and fun. I think its important to teach children social skills and enjoy eating out so the fact that the children's food was well presented and filling was a huge bonus. I had the lamb roast dinner which was cooked to perfection, melt in the mouth scrumptiousness. A family run business much be be admired. So if you are a family, or a couple on an cosy date, or just a group of friends, I highly recommend eating here. I have also just popped in for a drink a few tapas which was most enjoyable. Thank you for ending of my weekend well, FABULOUS.

“Lovely Meal in a really smart restaurant”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

We had lovely dinner at the Waterside last night - friendly, attentive staff, really good food in a restaurant with a laid back yet very smart atmosphere.

A bit more expensive than the other options in the area, but nice for a treat!

“Fantastic food, service and atmosphere.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Our second visit to the waterside, another great lunch, the food is first class, the service excellent and the surroundings superb. We don't live local but it is well worth the drive, Lisa the owner goes out of her way to make sure your dining experience is the best it can be. The service is some of the best we have had anywhere and the important bit...the food, we enjoy eating out and know how food should be done and this is how food should be done.

If you enjoy great food, surroundings etc then a visit to the waterside should be on your to do list

Thanks Lisa for another great visit.

“Slick surroundings!”
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 :-)
