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

We dropped in to the Three Fishes without a reservation on a Tuesday lunchtime in July. Despite it being a touch busy, we were promised a table just as soon as they could, and it materialised in about ten minutes. Crab on Toast, Duck Pasty and Pancakes with lemon juice combined with good bitter all conspired to give me a... More

On arrival I confirmed our reservation with the Manager who said he would check if our table was free. 10 minutes later we were still stood there wating to be either escorted to our table or offered a seat and a drink whilst our table was made ready. Eventually I... More

The food was great, but the service very poor. Had to wait a while to have our finished starter plates taken away, then had to wait ages to have our main meal plates taken away. Our waiter had seen we had finished and choose to go and clear and clean at least 3 other tables, but the occupants had actually... More

We chose this restaurant for a family meal to celebrate our parent's ruby anniversary. We came through recommendations from other people. My brother pre-booked and glad we did as it was busy. When we arrived we ordered drinks and looked at the menu. They had a good drinks menu, and as designated driver I ordered a lovely mocktail. It was... More

We went here with some friends who had recommended the meals. I went for a fish dish with marrowfat peas and hand cut chips. I was told that they didn't have any marrowfat peas so I changed my order! One of my friends have the hand cut chips but they were disappointing too. Perhaps we will return sometime to find... More
