Lunch on a lovely day.

Deciding that it was too nice a day to be in the house we decided (my wife and I) to pop out for Lunch. The Three Fishes was not our original choice but as we were going by and seeing we had not been for well over 12 months, we thought it would be a good choice. Now at 1.30... read more

Good but don't be in a hurry! Impressed by other reviews, I was keen to try this venue. Food excellent but wait totally unacceptable. Not shown to table until about 45 minutes after booked time. Orders not taken for ages after that even though we'd been looking at menus during original delay. Once starter order taken another extraordinary wait with... More

Popped in for a quick lunch with my mother as we didn't get out for Mothers Day last week.

I had the Goosnagh Chicken with mash and charred leaks. Awesome. Mix of patrons too, young, old; some in... More

We ordered a table before arriving, and was surprised to find I could more or less choose any 15 minute period, which considering this place is usually packed to the rafters, Ideas surprised about.

We have visited the Three Fishes on many occasions over the years and generally been quite happy with everything but I am sorry to say that our last visit was a disappointment.WE both ordered the rump steak burger which is normally served with homemade relishes and a strip of pickled cucumber which add some much needed moisture to the dish.This...
