Hog's Head Pub reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Hog's Head Pub, a counter service restaurant in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure.
Written by Robert Niles
A bar inside the Three Broomsticks, this is often the best place to buy The Wizarding World's acclaimed Butterbeer. Sure, there's a big Butterbeer cart outside in the middle of the land, but it's queue is often crazy-long for this wildly popular drink. Swing around the corner and duck into the Hog's Head from the back for one of these creamy, butterscotch-flavored (non-alcohol) treats, in either traditional or frozen (slushy) form. Frozen is usually a buck more ($4 and change, if you don't go for the souvenir mug). For the grown-ups, a selection of real beers, wine, and mixed drinks also is available.
There's nothing wrong with this spot. It is perfect. - Jonah Sirota
I LOVE the theming in this pub! The special effects are amazing. My only wish is that there was seating just for the pub, separate from the restaurant that isn't outside. - Michelle Morgan
This place is magical. When you listen closely you hear the footsteps of the tenants upstairs and when you give a tip de hogshead on the wall comes to life. I signed my bill with a magical feather pen that stood straight up on the bar and when I complained a bit about the rain the girl behind the bar gave me a smile and said it what authentic and putting a smile on my face. Sitting outside gave a great view of the castle and the theming of the back of this beautiful environment. - O T
