Went for an anniversary lunch - have been before and enjoyed the food. Once again the food was delicious - Nigel's hot pot and also the chicken stuffed with black pudding were fantastic - the lamb in the hot pot was so tender Staff attentive and pleasant - thanks everyone

My third visit in four years and always something to talk about & remember. Three memorable items for me - my drink (see the photo), the salmon starter and my dessert. Salmon cured with treacle was something to try, just as it should be I'm sure, but not for me; want the sharpness of lemon rather than a sweeter flavour.... More

We have visited The Three Fishes, several times over the past four years, and always find the food and service excellent. The last time we called we did seem to be rushed a little, but the place was very very busy. Will still return when we have the day out in Cltheroe.

We have visited the Three Fishes many times before as the food is normally excellent, however on this occasion we were very disappointed. We haven't been for a while and I don't know if it has new owners but the food wasn't great. The chicken main was tasteless. The skin was fatty and not crisp.The chips were ok but nothing... More

Six of us went for early evening meal. Beautiful decor and attentive staff. The bread with black pea humus was very good as we're the pigs head croquettes. Unfortunately, the Lancashire rarebit was very disappointing. The poached egg was well cooked but the cheese mixture was obviously spread on the bread and then kept slightly warm so it achieved a...

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never come away disappointed; There is ample parking and plenty of space inside, I have never experienced the place being understaffed. The food is locally sourced and always tasty, and there is a perfectly adequate menu. It is by no means, gourmet or fine dining and the price reflects... More

We went for a family meal on a Sunday, lovely setting, excellent service & scrumptious food which was enjoyed by all our party, with a choice of food to accommodate all appetites & age ranges from 3 to 87. Will definitely visit again & will be recommending to others.

Our first visit for nearly three years, although we had visited numerous times prior to this. Four of us went for Sunday lunch and the experience left us feeling disappointed and underwhelmed. To be fair the actual food was fine. On arrival we were taken straight to our table – to find it hadn’t been set. Our first surprise was... More

Called for lunch and was most disappointed. The service was fine but the waiting time for the food was not. In the end I asked where our good was as other people were being served who had arrived after us. The waitress said it was because I had ordered the fish pie. However 3 mins later our food arrived.
