Harden's says

It's a case of Back to the Future at this ancient inn, closed by Brunning & Price in 2019. For the second time in the last 20 years, it's being made over by Nigel Haworth of nearby Northcote Manor fame. Back in 2004 it was as part of Ribble Valley Inns but now it’s in partnership with Martin Aspinall, trustee of the Standen Estate. Launching in October 2021, Nigel is aiming to put back the "original magic of The Three Fishes alongside my drive for sustainability and local sourcing".

The cradle of the Ribble Valley Inns chain and, to some, “still the best” – this converted old village pub has a very solid reputation for its “seasonal produce and classic Lancashire dishes”. In May 2018 it ceased its connections to Northcote, as the group was swallowed by Chester-based pub chain Brunning & Price.

“Well appointed, and in a super part of the Lancashire countryside” – this “busy and atmospheric” conversion of an old village pub achieved local fame as the first of the Ribble Valley Inns chain. The odd “forgettable” meal is reported, but for the most part it’s praised for its “lovely pub grub”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
