Celebrated chef Nigel Haworth has returned to The Three Fishes in Mitton, Lancashire, but this time to open it as his very own restaurant, set to launch mid-November.
Set in the Ribble Valley, The Three Fishes will be centered around a farm to fork ethos that celebrates the incredible produce to come out of Lancashire. Born in the county, Lancashire holds a firm place in Haworth’s heart as he spent much of his career there.
The Northcote Group and Haworth opened The Three Fishes in 2004, and Haworth played a key part in making it one of the UK’s most loved pubs. Taking personal ownership of the pub is a circle moment for one of Britain’s most-adorned chefs.
A family affair, Haworth’s wife, Kathrine is taking charge of the interior design. Three Fishes will offer a blend of traditional and contemporary design with an intimate private dining area. The jewel in the crown will be a fully heated outdoor feasting table for some unforgettable dining.
The Three Fishes is an opportunity for Haworth to genuinely explore his passion for farm to fork cooking. Way more than just a buzz word, his commitment to growing and serving the very best local ingredients has been a passion throughout his life.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Alice Waters and Dan Barber, Nigel has recruited Danielle Strain, a first-class organic farming team lead to work alongside a soil expert who will be growing on a permaculture basis. Establishing sustainable planting and harvesting techniques is key to improving the taste of ingredients grown.
The menu details will be revealed closer to the opening.
