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.

This place is magical. When you listen closely you hear the footsteps of the tenants upstairs and when you give a tip the 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. Don't buy your Butterbeer at the cart, this pub gives you a much better experience and when you have an annual pass an extra discount if you show it to them.

There's nothing wrong with this spot. It is perfect.

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.

My favorite hidden spot to duck out of the crowds and sun to grab a peaceful drink in the dark!

Pro Tip: get a pretzel at the outside cart and order a beer here for a nice little snack :)
