The Waterside Inn is a fantastic business in the heart of Leigh, Lancashire. In the daytime we serve top quality food, served in picturesque surroundings by the canal side. The pub had an extensive refurbishment in 2014 and looks absolutely fantastic. There is something on every night of the week, and on Friday & Saturday nights we open until 3am playing all the classics with fantastic drink offers.
