I've been going to the three fishes for years but only recently been able to go after suffering from a bad crash on my bike. What are all the mediocre reviews for? It's as good as ever. The food is excellent and the service just as good. If all you're planning to do is find fault then you are going... More

Tuesday evening visit, Called in for a coffee whilst out walking in the area, had a look at the menu which looked rather good although it was very quiet. Prices a bit on the high side but the couple of meals that passed us on route to tables looked well presented.

A whole week later and I'm still having wonderful memories of the Lancashire Hot Pot! The lamb was just melt-in-the-mouth of tender deliciousness. The whole dish tasted so good and the pickled red cabbage was very tasty. Then I succumbed to the Clotted Cream custard with strawberries...shouldn't have done it....glad I did. Could have eaten it again!! Nice place, attentive... More

Our table was not laid when we arrived, although we had booked but the staff quickly put mats down and cutlery after we had ordered. it had clearly been a busy Sunday as the roast lamb was off the...

I took my grandma here for Saturday lunch. The waiting staff were fabulous and very welcoming. Although there was a lady who appeared to be management pacing up and down the restaurant. Presumably checking everything was in order. But to "clip clop" past in her high heels on the stone floor in excess of 30 times throughout a two course... More

This is my third visit over a number of years, and have not yet been disappointed. For a Wednesday evening the pub was fairly busy but service was good. The staff are professional and although the waiter was unable to answer a specific question about a menu item he quickly found the answer and also came and checked with me... More
