Revisited the Waterside and it was well worth it. It is still a great restaurant with a very good atmosphere. Good menu fantastic food and great owners and staff. I think it is the best all round restaurant in the Rochdale area

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

We visited the waterside on Saturday. It was the first time we visited, and it certainly won't be the last. The service was 5*, it has the best atmosphere in a restaurant I have ever known, even on a busy evening, we felt as though we was the only two people in the restaurant. Absolutely amazing!!!

We've not been to the Waterside for a good few months now as we've always used it as a 'celebrations' restaurant. Birthdays, anniversaries and the like. However the proprietors put an 'Early Bird Menu' up on the local FB buy and sell page. I rang and booked in that evening. The food was superb. I've attached the menu so you... 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.
