Came to Three Pigeons because it had mixed reviews! So here is the low down! Super friendly staff! Fantastic service! Excellent food, exactly as I requested and the kitchen went above and beyond! 10/10. Definitely recommend this pub/restaurant! :-)

A group of us have eaten here a couple of times, everyone has had excellent meals and this has now become our regular eating place. The menu is extensive, the service is good and the staff are friendly and helpful. Overall this is a nice pub serving reasonably priced food and is well worth a visit.
