"Shall we go for a butterbeer in the Three Broomsticks?"
-- Ron Weasley (PA10)
A well-known inn and a frequent haunt of Hogwarts students. It’s warm and comfortable, is packed every time Harry goes in, and is a great spot to drink butterbeer (PA10), although they also serve firewhisky (GF25), gillywater, mulled mead, red currant rum, and even cherry syrup and soda with ice and an umbrella (PA10). The owner of the bar is Madam Rosmerta, who Ron enjoys watching (HBP12), at least when she’s not under an Imperius Curse (HBP27).
- When Harry visited the Three Broomsticks under his Cloak of Invisibility, he overheard a conversation between McGonagall, Hagrid, Flitwick, Cornelius Fudge and Madam Rosmerta concerning his godfather, Sirius Black, his parents' friend who supposedly betrayed them to Voldemort and killed Peter Pettigrew before being sent to Azkaban (PA10)
- One student thought they saw an Ogre having a drink at the Three Broomsticks (PA8).
- Rita Skeeter often lurked around the Three Broomsticks during the the Triwizard Tournament (GF19, GF21, GF24, GF31)
