Visited for the festive menu - starter and main was excellent but felt a little let down with dessert- Black Forest trifle which was mainly a dish of whipped cream - far too much cream! Won't deter though, we visit regularly and this is the first time I've been disappointed.

Dad booked but there was some confusion and our booking for 6 had been lost. The staff were great though and managed to find us a table. We had a lovely meal and two bottle of the house Rioja. Portions are huge so a few of us had two starters or just a main course. Universal enjoyment though!

Called at the Three Fishes for a spontaneous Sunday soirée and we weren't disappointed. The service was warm and friendly and the food was lovely. The place was busy with a nice mix of couples and families and the food arrived soon enough. Everywhere looked nice and clean too. My only negative was that the plates were cold.

The food itself was very good, as were the drinks and ambience, but the service let them down. Pity, as otherwise it would have been 4/5 stars.

Really excited about going here again as here were the best chips I'd ever ever had and they were consistently good ...... no longer. They were ok but not gnarled, crispy at the edges and cooked to perfection and certainly not worth another trip. What has happened to this place? Was suspicious when only three cars outside on a Saturday... More

It's strange to see the mix of reviews for this pub, we called for a meal Friday lunchtime, it was great, a sharing platter of nibbles to start, fish pie and hake for main, all fresh and excellent. Service great, it was quite busy but not full, good atmosphere, with a huge roaring fire - we would happily call again

Went in for dinner last night, The starters were both great. I ordered a medium/rare ribeye for my main and this arrived well done. It was taken away and I then received the next one raw. My girlfriend had to work at 7 and by this point it was already 6.40 and she had finished her main. We made the... More

Been here many times with family and loved it however the last time we went the service was pretty poor. Staff seemed new and inexperienced. They forgot yo bring fresh cutlery and when we order pancakes with lemon and sugar they didn't bring any sugar which usually comes in a proper dispenser. Took ages to get hold of someone then...
