One of the oldest, best preserved and rare exhibits of Art Deco in a Northern pub, Three Pigeons combines the angularity of the style with more familiar cosy pub aesthetics very well. A well restored multi-roomed pub which offers a community feel despite the proximity to the centre and train station. On entry you will find an unusual octagonal hallway which leads off in 4 directions – check the pigeon mural on the ceiling as well. The bar room is perhaps the most basic and traditional, but the lounge with its fireplace and striking artwork is impressive too. The backrooms with games and more intimate space come alive at busier times and shouldn’t be missed. Ossett Brewery owns the place and most of the beer offerings stem from them, all of which are excellently well kept. A great selection of pub snacks – pies, pasties, rolls, scotch eggs from local suppliers, all at fair prices. On matchdays there is a friendly swell of supporters and a rhythm to the pre-post match atmosphere that enhances its social value. A clear gem.
