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.

Reviewed 13 July 2014

I visited this restaurant on saturday evening, the atmosphere was buzzing, people where laughing and staff where smiling. we was greeted by a tall dark handsome waiter who was lovely, he helped us and advised us on the best dishes, we ordered the steak and the sea meats land, the food was cooked to utter perfection and arrived in a decent amount of time, the vegetables where freshly cooked and the side of chips we ordered were so fluffy with a light crisp, following mains we was offered desert menus, they had a variety of deserts to choose for everybody's tastebuds, there were also specials to choose from, i personally chose the baileys home made cheesecake and my friend has a cheese board, we thoroughly enjoyed it and had a glass of red wine, after we had finished we was not rushed to leave, we had to of the most gorgeous cocktails that you could easily identify was made from fresh fruits and they wasn't shy with the measurements. the waiter the delivered us the bill and socialised with us which made us feel comfortable there. the price was reasonable for the brilliant night we had. we even saved a train fair because the waterside is just as good as any manchester restaurant i will definitely visit again!!!!!! beautiful

“I thought I had died and gone to heaven!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Despite living in the area for 13 years, I had never tried this restaurant. Wanting to try something new my daughter and I decided to give it a try. It is quite small inside but has a nice ambience. We weren't very hungry so we went straight to the mains. I had the garlic mushroom fillet steak with Gorgonzola sauce and my daughter had the lamb shank. Both were absolutely fantastic but my fillet was truly heavenly. I have eaten in many much higher end restaurants but I can only think of one that matched the quality and taste of the food. We had the toffee pudding and Eton mess for dessert were both lovely. All the servers were really pleasant and we had a fantastic evening. We will definitely be back.

“At the Wrong Time”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Visited late on a Sunday evening having read the great Tripadvisor reviews, unfortunately we must have visited at the wrong time , the food was ok, the steaks would have benefited from a few chips and the service was only average

“Very good”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Went with a group of friends. The service was excellent, as was the food generally.The portions are generous, so only one person had dessert: the waitress brought (unprompted) an extra coupe of spoons in case we wanted a taste. The meat is truly excellent: we all had fillet steak as we had a 20% loyalty voucher from one of the group. Parking is very limited, which can be a problem if you have impaired mobility, though there is a car park 100 metres away.
