"The Leaky Cauldron is a popular wizarding pub and inn in London. It is the entrance to Diagon Alley, and, indirectly Knockturn Alley."
"It was built by Daisy Dodderidge, the first landlady, in 1500. She said that it was, "to serve as a gateway between the non-wizarding world and Diagon Alley." It rented rooms, had a bar, several private parlour rooms, and a large dining room."
At the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley (the extended new park at Universal Studios), The Leaky Cauldron is a diner serving a similar menu as The Three Broomsticks at Hogsmeade Village in the other wing of the Wizarding World at the Islands Of Adventure. The barrels above are dispensing Pumpkin Juice, Butterbeer (frozen and regular). and alcoholic beverages.
The dining hall reminded us of the scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban where the Weasley family was sitting down for breakfast before leaving for Platform Nine and Three Quarters. The chandeliers, staircases, and stone wall archways are exactly the same as the movie.
The Leaky Cauldron's Fisherman's Pie was perfect for our lunchtime need. We split the goodness into two. There was cod and shrimp in there with mashed potatoes and some veggies here and there. There were salad greens at the side to pierce through the starch load. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was from the dessert gods of the Wizarding World and we found ourselves swooning. There was a tiny little vanilla ice cream scoop that made its crowing glory, I remember pecans in the bread pudding, and the sticky caramel was yum!
I believe this is a most sought-after photo spot at The Leaky Cauldron because the servers offered to take our photograph for us while we were inspecting what was spewing inside this gianormous cauldron. Imagine the bulk cooking I can do if I have one of those!
Leave me comments, I love hearing what you have to say. Also, I hit back!
