We had a great meal at the Waterside. Two of us are vegetarian, and one of the others chose veggie because the menu was so good. There was a wide selection of good, single vineyard wines, and decent beer too. A good atmosphere, with staff...More

A group lunch here was a pleasant experience. The service was good though the table arrangement was a little bizarre, we soon agreed on a change. An interesting menu left us spoilt for choice. Nobody was dissappointed, well cooked food and tasty, crunchy vegetables, great.

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.
