Eating (and drinking) at Harry Potter.
It is a good idea to plan your islands of Adventure day round eating at Harry Potter. Since it is wise to get to that area before the crowds build up I would suggest eating a bit earlier or later than everyone else.
You will be glad to know that there is not a burger or hot dog in sight! All food served is authentic to what Harry might eat.
The name of the restaurant is ' The 3 Broomsticks* and here they will serve you fish and chips, shepherds pie and cornish pasties. For the Americans to whom all 3 of those dishes would find worryingly unknown there are ribs and chicken.
The children can choose from macaroni cheese, and chicken fingers (or a small fish and chips) and these are served with grapes and applesauce which was largely being left on the plates on our visit. .
Puds are also a bit unusual for America; chocolate trifle, apple pie and strawberry and peanut butter ice cream. I can never manage a dessert after a meal out so cannot record the taste but they seemed to be going down well.
Costs are theme park prices around $9 and up and the quality of the food when we went was good.
Adjacent to the restaurant is a pub which serves alcohol. The pub is called ' The Three Broomsticks' However, by far the most popular drink is Butter Beer. I thought this was real ale but found out soon enough that it is a curious (disgusting) blend of shortbread and caramel flavours.
They reently sold their millionth glass of Butter Beer and celebrated by giving away free samples to the ' lucky' visitors.
The pub is themed much as all of this area and watch the walls for a secret that I will not spoil. Also available here is pumpkin juice but you will be glad to know that you cannot get a coke or a slush.
There are also snacks and drinks available all through the area and the fact that the staff are all dressed Harry Potter style makes you want to linger.
While we were there some look alike Harry Potter and Hermiones were happy to have their photo taken with you and the children were thrilled to be in a photo with Harry!
The Harry Potter park took 4 years to come to fruition and cost nine million dollars; I think they will re coup this investment fast. It is nice to see Americans so thrilled at something so British!
