Tables are quite close together and service was just about OK as a large party was in. Worst point is parking, not much outside and had to park at the Marina and walk, Ok on a fine... More

Me and my husband came here a couple of weeks ago. We came at 6pm and it seemed like a good time to go as it wasn't too full. The service was attentive but not pestering and the service was always happy and bubbly. We enjoyed the atmosphere as it was candlelit and had quietly chilled relaxing "beats" playing in... More

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.
