Used the 3 Fishes mid-week as a base for lunch to meet up with a client based just up the road. I've been to the Fishes before - and on the basis of this visit will do so again, and I really must get around to visiting some of the other Ribble Valley Inns to discover whether the quality is... More

We visited the Three Fishes recently to have Sunday lunch. We both had rump of beef, the Sunday roast, which was delicious although we thought to give us one very small roast potato each was a bit mean. This was followed by an excellent desert of poached peaches. The staff were all attentive and helpful and we received good efficient... More

I have been a couple of times to the Three Fishes and wishing to do so again, contacted Peter the General Manager, whose very positive attitude as regards dietary requirements is excellent. He co-ordinated with chef and I was given choices and pre-ordered before our visit. We visited on a Saturday night with friends who have visited all the Ribble... More

Have been several times here and each visit have never been disappointed. Customers are waiting on the carpark for the pub/restaurant to open which has got to be a good sign. Food is locally sourced and of excellent quality. The burgers are proper homemade and all meals are tastefully presented to a high standard. Highly recommended!

I always look forward to visiting the Tree Fishes as I do reasonably regularly as I only live 2 miles away. We arrived and took the table we always do if free to be greeted by the new menu.

Lovely looking pub with beautiful décor. However, when we visited we waited 10 minutes for service before leaving. The pub was quiet and there was not one member of staff to be seen.
