Review on The Three Fishes
The Three Fishes which originally opened its doors in 2005 as part of the Northcote portfolio of restaurants was sold to Brunning & Price, the pub division of The Restaurant Group in 2018. A rambling stone inn not far from Whalley, the quality of its food and genuine hospitality has made it a popular venue.
Photos of the stars (local producers, growers and suppliers, that is!) take pride of place in the bar, alongside a full quota of country pub knick-knacks, horse brasses and real ales on tap. It's all very tastefully done and there's no standing on ceremony or false pretence about proceedings.
The menu is not only a roll-call of local 'food heroes', but it celebrates the kind of food that is every pub-goer's dream: here are plates of home-cured meats with homemade pickles, heather-reared Bowland Lamb turned into a hot pot, slow-baked pig's trotters with chicken and black pudding stuffing, proper fish pies sprinkled with Lancashire cheese and much more. It's heartwarming comfort food if the best sort, all rounded off with classics like Lancashire curd tart or Bramley apple crumble with cinnamon custard. The cracking wine list is a world away from most humdrum pub offerings.
