On the Road to the Wizarding World Hollywood: The Three Broomsticks

December 14, 2015, 10:08 PM · Let's continue our tour of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood with a look at its restaurant, The Three Broomsticks.

The Three Broomsticks

An ancient gathering place in the village of Hogsmeade in the Harry Potter books and films, The Three Broomsticks is run by Madam Rosmerta, who figures prominently as a catalyst for major plot developments in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Earlier, in Harry's third year at Hogwarts, it was at The Three Broomsticks that he learned the truth about Sirius Black.

In Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Three Broomsticks serves diners throughout the day, from early-morning breakfasts to Butterbeers at last call. Designed by Universal Creative in cooperation with Harry Potter production designer Stuart Craig, the restaurant is built to look as much like the version in the films as possible. (Of course, this Three Broomsticks has a roof, unlike a film set, and a working kitchen.)

Inside The Three Broomsticks

Located just up the High Street from Honeydukes, the Orlando version of The Three Broomsticks serves fish n' chips, Cornish pasties, smoked turkey and chicken and spareribs.

It's a more limited pub-inspired menu that visitors will find at the newer Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley, but since the Wizarding World Hollywood won't have a Diagon Alley (at least for now...), we are awaiting word if some of the Orlando Leaky Cauldron's fare might make it onto an expanded Three Broomsticks menu in Hollywood.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens officially at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7, 2016.

we have eaten at the Leaky Cauldron - Decent enough for Theme park food. (OF course it was no CowFish or Mythos Restaurant)
