The Three Fishes is situated in the tiny picturesque hamlet of Mitton in the rural haven of the Ribble Valley. As the flagship and first born to Ribble Valley Inns, this country pub in Lancashire has become a legend in these parts. Menus inspired by Nigel Haworth using only the freshest ingredients harvested by our local food heroes. Enjoy regional Cask Ales and an award winning wine list specially chosen by leading wine expert, Craig Bancroft. All of this in a wonderfully relaxing environment for eating out - with al fresco dining in the summer and crackling logs fires in the winter

Not really a pub, more of a restaurant that serves beer, but a perfectly decent one at that. A fairly concise menu (which is good) with a mix of gastropub staples plus a few quirky bits. One of my friends had the ribs as a starter and it came chilled rather than hot as expected, highly unusual and not entirely... More

went as a family for sunday lunch, service was very slow, we found out one of the ovens had broken, but were not told specifically. At 12.45 they had ran out of Yorkshire puddings. Food was not hot only warm, due to lack of one oven. Not best for an overall good restaurant, It would make me think before going... More

Had dinner here Saturday night with friends. The place has a lovely relaxed ambiance which mixed with nice food made for a nice evening with friends. Between us we tried parfait; baked Brie and ham croquets to start, followed by belly pork; duck; baked cod and veggie curry. Everyone enjoyed their meal; not overly large portions, but that assured we... More

We were four adults and 2 children of 8 and 6. The children were welcomed and given crayons and a drawing and puzzle book to amuse them. Very friendly and helpful service throughout. Excellent food and a good and reasonable wine list. Service prompt but not in any way rushed. Lovely wood room with a glorious open fire.
