I wept tears of joy the very first time I went to the Three Fishes at Mitton in the Ribble Valley. A pub that serves gorgeous local food and welcomes you with a smile. It now appears in virtually every newspaper and foodie magazine. The latest review is here. One of its success factors has been the proximity to top boarding school Stonyhurst. I hear it's now so busy on a Sunday, you have to be there before 12. A victim of its own success? I eagerly await the opening of The Highwayman, their next venture, but hope they don't spread themselves too thinly.
