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

The setting is lovely and the furnishings are pleasant and relaxing. Unfortunately the food did not match the quality of the setting. The cheese and onion pie had very little filling but lots of crust... awful. even the baked potatoes were far from good, being to tough to cut! The quality of the puddings was distinctly underwhelming. Contrasted with this... More

Family birthday meal this weekend. Food was very nice. Portions small for the blokes?! I would say they need more staff as we waited about 45 minutes for our main and 20 mins for a drinks order.

We're familiar with some of the Ribble Valley Restaurants, but this was our first visit to The Three Fishes. Set in beautiful countryside, this is an ideal place for a special lunch stop. We were made very welcome and were pleased to find a varied menu at reasonable prices.. My husband has the Lamb Hotpot and I had the Fish... More

Have visited here many times over the years and would go as far to say that it is my favourite pub in Lancashire! Our last visit didn't disappoint with girlfriend thoroughly enjoy her fish and chips and my hot pot was scrumptious. Pudding was heavenly too! I just wish some of the magic would rub off onto the sister pub... More

We absolutely love this place. The food was amazing as always. I had the twice baked cheese souffle to start with. For my main I had the pork belly and for pudding I had the apple tart. All washed down with a scrummy bellini and a prosecco. I would definitely advise this as one to try

Heard lots about Nigel's pub fayre. But having made special trip for lunch with wife on day off was left disappointed. Lancashire 'faggots' where a childhood fav memory. These were small tight meatballs! Unfortunately Cauliflower fritters were the highlight of our lunch. Lamb hot pot lacked flavour-Cheese pie was dry! Won't be rushing back.

The staff were friendly, great and really helpful. However, the food was average. There was nothing bad about the meal, it just lacked in flavour. My boyfriend had the burger and it tasted fine but the actual meat in the burger did not have a lot of flavour to it. Overall it was a nice place to go, the staff... More

We were a party of four and there was plenty of choice to suit everyone. The cheese soufflé in particular was delicious and the portion sizes were exactly right. We sat in the older part of the restaurant and enjoyed the ambience almost as much as the food and service.
