Well worth a visit if you get the opportunity!!! Food and service is excellent. Last visited 2007 so wasn't sure what to expect but it was excellent

The Three fishes has a fab atmosphere , the food is always excellent, and the staff are obviously well trained and love being there. The last time we went(Saturday 11th Feb) there seemed to be a new Maitre D. He was brilliant. Make sure you book..it's always busy

Went for lunch with friends, not all items were available and whilst we don't mind waiting for freshly cooked food, the least we expect is for all the meals to then arrive at the same time. The staff as usual are friendly and welcoming but I feel this place needs a shake up. The menu options have been the same... More

Food is always good here but the service is very slow. They would say relaxed but it's just slow. Been here 3 times in the last 9 months and it's always the same. You have to badger the serving staff to order your drinks, then your food and then the bill. But to be honest last time i just went... More

We have no complaints and had a really pleasant lunch here. The menu was extensive and the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good and though it was busy with a few birthday celebrations around the staff seemed to cope pretty well. It was relaxing, attentive service without any pressure and we will definately be back.

I'm not sure that I've ever been inspired to write a review on here before despite having eaten in some fabulous restaurants - including Northcote. I'm inspired today - Salt Chamber Rib Eye. Best steak I have ever eaten. Really.

We chose here for lunch after reading recent positive reviews...we weren't disappointed!! The pub itself has a light atmosphere...a good blend of modern features with traditional touches! We sat near the roaring log fire which was lovely on a chilly day! The staff were attentive...the whole ambiance is very 'laid back'...which suited our day! The gammon and the chicken salad... More

We visited for a birthday celebration meal and waited in the pleasant bar area where we enjoyed a good choice of drinks, including a 'beer paddle', chatting to friendly barstaff whilst we waiting for friends to arrive. The restaurant area is quite large and felt a bit 'disconnected' with a number of different staff serving us. The food choices were... More
