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

Good pub grub

The three fishes is a well appointed gastro pub in nice surroundings. We had a special menu on this visit which was £15 for three courses, superb value for the generous portions. The food was well cooked and the staff attentive. I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed.

Very popular pub in lovely spot. Not a great deal of room on the car park so arrive in good time for your booking. Lovely Moorhouse beer on tap and beer paddles to try for those looking to sample the range. Food was lovely with very big portions. Tip is don’t have any of the `nibbles` if you’re having 2... More

Fancied a ride out from Manchester on Bank Holiday Monday. 1st visit so Pre-booked a table & was glad we did as it was very busy - which to me is a clear sign of how good it was. Seated quickly & the staff were very friendly & helpful. The pub & decor were gorgeous too. Starters were black pudding... More

Went to the three fishes only last year for the first time even though it had been recommended numerous times. Lovely place not far from the river. Food was lovely and service was fantastic. Decided to go back for our 1st wedding anniversary at the last minute. The staff managed to fit us in even though they were quite busy... More

Great meal today, best cheese pie ever. Starters we shared, small varied flavours sausages and cauliflower fritters. Best sausages were the black pudding. Great choice of wines and beers.m

After arranging some rare babysitting for our two young children my husband took me here for a lovely, calm, child free lunch. We used to dine here more frequently on a Sunday before children! The basis of service has changed to a standard 'set' 2 or 3 course menu option, some of the previous best meals now being omitted. I... More

We only stopped here for a drink! What a lovely place, and such a friendly welcome from staff and manager, Martin. We will be back soon to enjoy a meal - the menu was amazing. Do visit. :-)

Went here for my mother in laws birthday and it was well decorated and friendly staff but the bad points are ... The staff are very clumsy but are very friendly. We ordered lamb and it was very nice but such a small portion with 1 potato and little blob of mash with 6 runabeans. The pudding was the best....... More
