Good food, good service.

Me and my partner enjoyed a Sunday evening meal at The Three Fishes in May, the staff were polite and attentive, the food I would describe as good pub grub, not amazing by any means but would certainly consider eating their again.

We were in a party of 6 last night and we recieved poor service and some very poor dishes. We have been here before for lunch which was good but from the moment we walked in it was bad. Made to stand and wait to be seated while 3 parties paid bills at the bar. After being seated it took... More

Probably our 4th visit to The Three fishes over a number of years and will be sure to come back again. Service and food excellent. Good quality ingredients served piping hot and by knowledgeable staff. Menu possibly not as extensive as it might once have been, I miss their sticky ribs with devil black peas, but what they do, they... More

It's a lovely modern venue with ample car parking situated just outside of Clitheroe and Whalley. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food is really nice and well presented and it's at a price you would expect. We had one issue once where food was taking a while to come so we nearly didn't have desert but it's... More

Called at this restaurant for supper. We were time limited as we had to meet my companion's young daughter later in the evening. Unfortunately I chose the fish pie which took rather a long time to cook. By the time our meal arrived we had to eat it very quickly as it was time to leave to meet my friend's... More

Been to this place many times- I like the food and ambiance. The last few times however has seen very slow service. Getting your mains an hour after your starters really isn't on. We always get an apology- when we flag it up but never an explanation- and nothing changes.

I visited this pub with two friends. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and I found the decor to be pleasing and cheerful. I ordered pea soup which was delicious and piping hot, as requested. The main courses were all well received. My friends had fish and chips and hot-pot. I ordered pork belly. My course was delayed for 7... More
