One of Lancashire’s prestigious Michelin star chefs has confirmed when his new high-end pub and restaurant will be opening.
Former Northcote chef Nigel Haworth has taken over the reigns at The Three Fishes in Mitton, close to Clitheroe.
Nigel had originally hoped to open in October but has now confirmed it will be opening next week on Friday, November 12.

Taking to Instagram, Nigel posted: “Seemingly now as we get closer to our opening, every day brings big changes to how The Three Fishes looks, gradually members of our team will begin joining us and we’ll begin taking those final steps towards opening.
“Thank you all for your patience, we’ve had to jump many a hurdle to get to where we are but without your support we wouldn’t have managed it.
“I know many of you are eager to hear about menus and bookings, which again has unfortunately been delayed up until this point.
“However, all being well, we will start to release all the information you’ve been waiting for as of next week over @thethreefishesmitton. Thank you again and I’ll see you next week.”
Nigel updated a seven minute video to Instagram showing the current state of progress at The Three Fishes, which includes what the exterior looks like, the bar area, and an expensive looking coffee machine.
An insight into the kitchen is also offered in the video, seen below.
Those familiar with Nigel will know this is not the first time he’s taken over the pub – having previously been at The Three Fishes in 2004 – and he admits returning years later “feels like coming home”.
Work has already started at the pub and the chef says he will “focus on first-class ingredients” and “seasonally focused menus”. His plans for the venue also include an orchard and a plot to grow produce for the pub.
