Quality of Drinks
Ossett Brewery beers with some guests. A cask focus with middling alternatives.
A true standout, the angularity of Deco combined with the wholesome charms of an English pub. The pub frontage gives no obvious clues as to the interior, but the front door hints at a Deco fitting, and leads to an Octagonal entrance way with bar to the left and a series of lounges. The corridor leads to two further rooms including a games room. Sympathetically designed for the most part with some open hatches which have not affected the intimacy of the pub in general.
Come rain or shine, there is a friendly welcome and a nice crowd of people. A calm cosiness at quiet times, but it comes into its own on matchdays or busy evenings becoming a true social hub.

Value For Money
Among the fairer priced pubs around Yorkshire, in line with Ossett Brewery’s business model. 
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.
