A marvellous little Thirties survival which combines Art Deco internal styling with one of the best, and most interesting, examples of the northern stand-up 'drinking lobby'. Rebuilt in 1932 for Samuel Webster & Son, one of Halifax's leading brewers of that time, and designed by local architects Jackson & Fox (who undertook all of Websters' commissions between the Wars) the Three Pigeons preserves an interior that is rare and remarkable. Its layout is unusual, with the drinking lobby as a superb little centrepiece from which three rooms and the servery all radiate. The lobby itself, moreover, is the only octagonal version of its type now known to survive.
