Greeted by friendly staff and shown to our pre booked table which was nicely by the fire. The food was very good and the service was acceptable but a bit slow with desserts and coffees. We decided on the three course festive menu which was not as advertised on the website when it came to desserts no Christmas pudding or... More

We enjoyed our lunch, good bread, excellent cod but I hestitate to rate the overall experience better than average because we waited an hour from ordering to getting our mains, too long at lunch time, especially as the tables were not all full.

My partner and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We had heard the food was good, but that was an understatement. Wonderful tastes, expertly put together. The fish platter to start was wonderful, a great main course, and the dessert was amazing. I work in the bakery trade and regularly try doughnuts form many suppliers, but the Lemon Curd doughnuts...

Recently visited & loved the layout & the service was good-----But ---- as good as the food was I do think it was over priced & the much acclaimed hot pot was to say the least a miserable portion. It may be acceptable to those fancy diners in London Nigel but you are dealing with proper Lanky chaps with a... More

The Three Fishes at Mitton is the 'flagship' pub in the Ribble Valley Inns Group. It was refurbished recently and this was our first visit since then. We chose the three course Festive Menu - our first taste of Christmas food this year. Our two starters were White Onion, Chestnut and Thyme Soup with Soda Bread and Goats Cheese Brulee... More

It had been quite a while since I last visited The Three Fishes and unfortunately my experience on the 4th December has re-inforced my decision not to go again. I took my Mother for tea, when we arrived there were perhaps only two tables occupied, the chappie who met us at the door was very polite and welcoming and sat... More

Tried the lancashire hot pot - it's fantastic. I followed this with a cheese board that was half the price and twice the size of many others.

We were so looking forward to dining at the Three Fishes. It had a good reputation and so I decided to treat my wife for a surprise Sunday lunch. We booked and arrived on time and the staff were very courteous and showed us to our table. The Three Fishes isn't exactly cheap but we could see that the restaurant... More
