Waterside Bar & Restaurant | Waterside Place, Northampton, NN1 5PH | 01604 893355


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the issues regarding social distancing, we are extending our closure.  Stay safe, and we open to reopen our doors and see you soon, UON!

Welcome to Waterside Bar & Restaurant! We’re located directly on the University of Northampton’s Waterside Campus. We’re the perfect spot for students and staff to drop in for a quick lunch or dinner. Waterside is also open to the public. Locals and visitors to our campus are always welcome to drop in and enjoy lunch, dinner, or one of our student-led events during the week. Fancy a pub-quiz or a karaoke night? We’re also open on the weekends during term time-perfect for date night or a night out with friends!

Follow us on social media, check-in, share your pictures, find out about great deals and our daily specials!
