Real Ale Ray left this review about The Three Pigeons Inn

A striking looking 17th Century Thatched Coaching house that has been lovingly restored both inside and out. The interior is traditional with a slight touch of some contemporary features. The first thing I noticed was how low the original ceilings were. The original beams especially beams at the rear of the building, had had a ferocious infestation of woodworm at some point. The interior had four main areas, two front sections and two side rooms, which were mainly set out for dining. One of which was traditional in décor, with a feature wall of tankards and the other more modern in style with a glass panelled conservatory roof. We sat in a small lobby at the rear of the bar, which was once the original snug. This was tastefully finished and the couple of high back buttoned red leather arm chairs were very comfortable. Three pumps, with what seems to be the usual suspects, Sharps Doombore and a Purity UBU. We went for the UBU, which was pricey at £4 a pint, still the quality was good.

Recently renovated and in the Good Beer Guide 2017.

Immaculate inside - much given over to diners but a couple of chesterfields in front of log burners are available.

Disappointing choice of only 2 real ales on my visit - Purity Gold and Doombar.

The beer was OK and one of the cheapest pints on our visit.
