On our last visit to the Three Fishes in September we had a poor experience.On this visit it was clear, however,that management has gone some considerable way to restoring former glories.The Sunday lunch menu is now varied and well balanced and supplements for particular dishes gone, for good,I hope.The place had a vibrancy and efficiency I thought it had lost...

We had booked for 12noon and arrived about then , were met by a friendly barman and roaring log fires and shown to our table. Drinks arrived promptly and we browsed the varied menu. The whole place has been... More

We went to the Three Fishes on Friday the 16th January. It is quite some time since we last visited this particular Ribble Valley Inn, as we felt that the standard had dropped. What can we say, only that the food has been lifted to a higher level, the menu has a wonderful choice, something for everybody. We chose the... More

First time here with friends. We booked a meal on a sunday lunch time. It was very busy but the layout of the restaurant meant we didn't feel over crowded and it wasnt too noisy. The restaurant is lovely. Very clean. The staff were very friendly and efficient and food was excellent.

I went with friends around 4pm on new years eve and, as usual, the food was outstanding. Everything was extremely fresh and well prepared. The staff and service is particularly good. The surroundings are very comfortable and we stayed several hours without feeling rushed at all. The prices are a little on the high side, but when they deliver delicious... More

We stopped off for a lunch bite in what turned out to be a very pleasant pub. Excellent menu choices and very friendly staff. Nice to be able to sit by the log fire and peruse the papers. We each had a light bite starter and sandwich, both of which were generous portions, very tasty and nicely presented. Beautiful views... More
