The Three Pigeons Inn was rebuilt in 1777; however a drover’s alehouse and stead has been on the site since the 12th century. Legend has it that, Owain Glyndwr stopped over at the ‘Pigeons’ whilst on his way to parliament in Machynlleth. During the 18th and 19th Century, the heyday of droving, the ‘Pigeons’ estate ran to 58 acres – drovers taking their livestock to the markets at Wrexham would settle their animals and then take refreshment and rest. The name ‘Three Pigeons Inn’ in surrounded in some mystery; however, many believe it relates the old Celtic symbols for the ‘Three Graces’ – honesty, fidelity and loyalty. The Cellars at the ‘Pigeons’ are made from the local country rock and are ideal for keeping cask ale in excellent condition and the tradition of serving cask ale continues. A local potter has made two and three pint jugs just for this purpose; this practice has gone on at the ‘Pigeons’ for many hundreds of years.
