Default Bar and Service Counter



Behind the counter is one of the most approachable people in Diagon Alley. Feel free to walk up to the counter and order anything off the menu.

When ordering at the Leaky Cauldron, the staff will fill your order as quickly as possible. However, if you want to order food the wait may be slightly longer. So feel free to, after having placed your order, take a seat in any of the appropriate areas. Once your food is ready, it will be delivered to you.

The owner has kept the menu widely the same since he took over the shop— however he does like to offer samples of new experimental recipes as they are available. The owner has a fondness for the sweet stuff, and his specialty has always been double chocolate brownies which have been added to the menu. Sphinx Snacks are cookies that come with their own individual riddle. If you are finding yourself unable to answer the Riddle of the Sphinx Snack, just eat it and the answer will magically pop into your head. The Gingerbread Men are a lively bunch that will argue with you as to why they shouldn't be eaten, so do be careful when ordering them and make sure that they do not try to run away and fall off the counter. No one is fond of picking up cookie men remains. Arguably the biggest hit with customers is the Dementor's Kiss Delight; a tooth-rottingly rich chocolate cake that comes with your choice of hot beverage for an additional 5 sickles.

The drinks have also stayed largely the same. Exploding Lemonade may be hazardous to your health and should be drunken with extreme caution. Vampire Venom is a drink not for the faint of heart and the Leaky Cauldron is not responsible for any fire breathing that may occur due to the intense spiciness of the drink. Perhaps what you may find the most shocking drink on the menu is not what it appears to be, but instead is a lovely blend of orange, snowberries, lychee, cranberry.

To order at the Leaky Cauldron, come up to the station and tell the staff what you want. Paying is key and mandatory, plus tips are always accepted.

Be mindful that certain beverages are only available to adult witches and wizards and there are NO exceptions to this.

Archie Ackerly hadn't ventured to Diagon Alley in a very long time. His life was now mainly centred around the non magical world – his ex wife was a muggle, his two kids being brought up in London, and his career in a law firm, currently crammed into a tiny office (which he was sure had formerly been a broom cupboard), was based in Canary Wharf.

It felt good to be back on the streets of Diagon. Memories of shopping for school supplies and causing mischief with his fellow Slytherin brother, came flooding back to him. And the smell of the Leaky Cauldron as he and his former best friend (now partner) entered, only served to intensify the nostalgia.

“Definitely Firewhiskey.” He replied to Angus as they approached the bar. “How could I come back to Diagon Alley and not sample it's finest.” He looked around for somewhere to sit, thankful that the Hogwarts horde was now safely back at the castle. “Prop up the bar or table by the window?”

Angus’s life had been pretty muggle-centric too for a while now. With the relocation to the US to perform with a contemporary company, it was the nagging feeling as if he was missing out on something that had brought him back. It was a chance meeting that had led him to reconcile with the ‘one that got away’ and it was the strange sense of nostalgia that being back with Arch produced that had resulted in their appearance in Diagon that day.

The former Ravenclaw hadn’t been so involved in the antics of Archie and his brother Alfie back in the day, he was more of an encouragement on the sidelines, a completely laid back he was almost horizontal guy who could go along with almost everything. It was hard to compete with an Ackerly when there were so many of them and each equally as talented as the other. Getting on the end of their Dad’s tether was perhaps their best talent as far as the aforementioned duo was concerned, Angus couldn’t help but to be impressed that the patriarch still had his head firmly screwed on.

He was pretty sure of what the answer to his question would be but Archie had matured over the years they’d been apart that the outcome might have been different. Kids changed a person and everything. “I thought as much” The corner of his lips twitched up into a knowing smile as he ordered the drinks from the barman. “But you could’ve got a taste for Butterbeer at some point or.. Vampire Venom whatever the heck that is” His nose slightly screwed up as he read from the menu. Magical folk did seem to have strange taste palettes sometimes.

“We can sit over there” He nodded his head towards the window. It was nice and quiet now the sprogs had gone back to school.

It wasn't even planned really, but drifting back to Diagon Alley seemed like the most natural thing in the world to Archie after that chance meeting with Angus in a London pub, merely for old times sake. He felt like being here had reawakened something he had lost when he left his magical life behind to pursue a career in Law. A career that led to him meeting his wife..

Before that fateful night, years had passed since Angus and Archie had seen each other. It hadn't been a good meeting – bad memories had resurfaced and too many questions raised about their past. But in the end, love had prevailed and the pair were once again as thick as thieves.

There was a lightness to Archie that he hadn't felt in years. His expression was brighter, his eyes had the twinkle not seen since his teenage years. And although his reconciliation with Angus had raised more than a few eyebrows within his close family, things had just felt right. It felt so good to be with the tall, lanky Welshman once again.

“Butterbeer? I've not had that in years. I never really liked it.” Too sickly for Archie's tastes. He looked through the menu. “It doesn't even say what's in that—I'd rather know what I'm drinking, mate.” He patted Angus on the shoulder. “Feeling daring enough to give it a go?” He thanked the barman and picked up his drink, taking it and settling into a seat by the window.

“Does it feel strange to be back here?”

This lanky Welshman was more than happy to be back spending time with the present company. Albeit more weathered with a patchy history, a couple of kids and remarkably less troublesome. That wasn’t to say that Angus had become boring but a tad more sensible with himself, a far cry from the teen he used to be. Perhaps the split had done them some good, the relationship strangely felt more natural.

“I thought Scarlett might have had some influence on you.” Angus was thankfully not a parent himself so he wasn’t sure about the exact logistics of how influential daughters were but from what he had seen of the little spoilt toddler, she did seem to enjoy getting her own way. “Don’t Dad’s become soft after they’ve had a girl?” The corner of his mouth twitched up into a familiar smirk.

Vampire venom had absolutely no appeal and from what he could assume would be some red based drink hopefully not containing real blood (although this WAS the Wizarding World and nothing could truly be much of a surprise anymore). “I’m no Gryffindor” he twitched his nose. Bravery to the point of recklessness was no longer on his agenda. Instead he ordered a Firewhiskey for himself and settled over by the window.

“Weirdly not. I think it’s because this place has barely changed since we’ve been away.” A few pieces of decor here and there maybe and a face or two had most definitely disappeared and new ones popped up in their place but generally Diagon Alley was as historically the same as it had always been.

Archie got settled in at the table by the window, his eyes meeting Angus's. The light from the window smoothed out any fine lines that had formed on his face over the years and the young man he used to know was currently looking back at him.

An amused smile briefly danced across Archie's face - Angus had a valid point. Having a daughter with penchant for sickly sweet flavours had expanded Archie Ackerly's palate. What he bought for the kids, he ended up sampling himself. “Let's be honest, mate, Scarlett influences everyone around her.” Scarlett was persuasive and strong willed with a large pinch of spoilt. What the girl wanted, she usually got from her dad. All down to Archie's feelings of guilt after the divorce from her mother. He knew it, but he couldn't help it. Soft? Yes. Most definitely.

“Ah no, but is the Ravenclaw in you not curious to give it a go? Try and decipher the ingredients?” Gryffindor, Ravenclaw.. Archie was neither. Even the Slytherin in him was not ambitious enough to drink something called Vampire Venom without knowing all the ingredients. For all he knew it might transfigure him into a bat.

It was true that the Leaky Cauldron still looked the same as when they were at Hogwarts. It even smelled the same. The nostalgia in the air was palpable. “It's making me feel all kinds of weird.” He admitted, taking a sip of his drink. “The place hasn't changed, but we have. It's like walking back in time.” Which wasn't a bad thing at all.

Speak for yourself, Arthur. Angus was quite proud of the fact that he hadn’t changed that much physically since school. Maybe the odd laughter line but he couldn’t help that he was smiley and his skin was punishing him for being generally positive. He took the seat opposite, placing the drink on the table before him. “Stop gazing, you sap” he chuckled.

From what Angus had experienced, Scarlett was a miniature firecracker with the innate ability to constantly get her own way. “Probably because her Dad lets her get away with it” he smirked. He couldn’t blame him though, he wasn’t a dad himself and didn’t know how he’d respond to having one of his own.

“Absolutely not. Ravenclaw’s aren’t stupid with their curiosity” he laughed. “We’d just ask the bartender what was in the drink rather than figuring it out.” Y’know, the simplest, most effective way. Intelligent enough to not make life harder for himself with a touch of laziness.

Angus wasn’t sure how it was that it was making him feel. The strong sense of nostalgia coupled with who it was he was with was making him feel all sorts of emotions. He wasn’t the type to outwardly show them however, he preferred to mask them with his humour. “Do you really think we have changed that much inside?”

Was he gazing? Archie had been completely unaware of any sap.. but the comment from Angus made him realise that he was, in fact, doing the whole dreamy eyed thing. With a clear of the throat and a small fleeting frown, he sat up straighter, hoping that Ang was the only person in the room that had noticed. Archie didn't like that sort of thing out in the public eye.

He took a sip of drink and savoured the flavour. There was nothing quite like the deep, warm tones of firewhiskey. The conversation turned to his youngest child, Scarlett.. “Got it in one. She's the product of a nasty divorce and the need to make her feel loved. Special. But Andrew doesn't use it to his advantage the way his sister does.” Andy was a worry in a different sort of way. A polar opposite to Scarlett. He had always been reserved, but the divorce had caused him to retreat even further into himself. The family were lucky to get even a grunt out of him in conversation.

The topic of Hogwarts houses was certainly lighter and Arch let out a laugh. “True that. Leave the stupidity to the Gryffindors. Matty would try it in a heartbeat.” And Hufflepuffs? Probably too sensible.

He considered his partner's question. Had he changed? “Maybe you haven't. But I have..” Life did that to you. Archie had a weight on his shoulders that he didn't have the last time the pair were here. Granted, it was lighter since Angus came back into his life. But not even the stress of exams compared to what life brought after graduation. If only you had been aware of that fact when you were living out those years. Not that Archie would change anything that had happened since – not even the ordeal with his ex. If things had been different, and Archie and Angus had actually got together back in the day, he wouldn't have his kids. “Then again, I don't know where I'd be today if life hadn't played out the way it has.” Would he have remained in the magical world? Would he have even have studied law? No, Angus might not have changed, but Archie most certainly had.

“Are you telling me that the States didn't change you? It must have been an amazing experience. Lucky guy.” He chuckled lightly.

Archie’s not-so-subtle admiration was providing the other man with a great source of amusement rather than making him uncomfortable. He was, after all, a human being and being the object of someone’s affection wasn’t going to be a negative. His lips fell into an altogether familiar smirk as Archie attempted to disguise any gazing with a shift in body language.

Angus understood that the divorce must’ve been hard on everyone in the family. He wasn’t around to witness how it went but he gathered that the children were the innocent victims of the circumstance whose worlds had been flipped upside down. “I don’t think Scarlett has the ability to NOT insist she’s special, or a volume switch” he chuckled trying to lighten the conversation a little. She was sassy and Merlin knew what she’d be like as a teenager but he admired her confidence. “And I don’t think there’s any doubt that those kids know you both love them regardless of the living situation.” Innocent yes but perhaps not so much of a victim anymore. “Besides, I bet Scarlett is thrilled to receive twice the number of birthday presents.” Kids priorities.

“PLEASE make sure that I’m present when Matty finds out you called her stupid.” Let’s just say that THAT conversation would be thoroughly entertaining to the onlooker.

Maybe his years away had not had a profound impact on his personality as staying at home might have. Maybe it was just too fun doing what he loved in a new country with no strings and attachments to hold him down. Angus still felt like he was very much the same person that he was in school, just with a little more awareness of himself and his former habits. “I don’t know, you’ve always been pretty serious even in school.” Meanwhile Angus was so relaxed he might as well have been horizontal. “And change doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.”

“I got to travel the country with the most relaxed group of dancers. It might as well have been a holiday” he laughed.

Yeah, you could stop smirking right now, Angus! Archie had been caught in the act and it was difficult to be all nonchalant when the target of your admiration was smirking at you like that from across the small table.

Moving on...

A hint of a smile flickered across his features. There were a few words Arch could think of to describe his youngest child. Strong being the first to spring to mind. And cunning. And determined. A Slytherin in the making had she attended Hogwarts, perhaps. Just like her old man – except Archie wasn't quite so forthright as Scarlett. She lacked subtlety in getting what she wanted, but that was something that may come with growing up. “True true. But she's still the apple of my eye. I wouldn't change her for the world.” He nodded in the affirmative, swirling his drink in the glass before taking a swig – the kids knew they were loved by both their parents. Another chuckle. “She's been begging and nagging for a dog. I think I might have to give in and indulge her. I know I'll end up walking it, but I could use the exercise. It's easy to let yourself go when you're sitting in an office all day.” Something Mr Dancer here probably couldn't comprehend. Angus was as fit and as slim as he was the day he graduated Hogwarts. Gangly too. Always gangly. Always appealing..

He looked up, eyes widened at the thought of Matilda's reaction to his words. “I did not call her stupid.” He laughed. “Not directly. And I know you'd never tell her. Would you?” Angus received a look from the brunette, albeit hiding amusement.

Ah, the sentiments about his grumpiness again. All his family accused him of being a miserable git.. but.. “It's my face. My features. I have that grumpy looking thing going on that I can't help. It's even worse when I'm just sitting thinking or concentrating. Ma will come up to me and..” Queue his best impression of Katrina, “You dun' look 'appy. Penny for your foughts, Arfur.” He raised his glass slightly to his ma. “But somehow it always makes me smile.”

Back to Angus and his magical mystery dance tour. “Wish I could have seen you perform, mate. You always shied away from letting me see. Perhaps, now that things are different, you'll trust me not to take the mick.” Which he may have done back in school, but, again, he wasn't that kid anymore. Best mates at school, and much more now. “No. Change is definitely a good thing.”

Look, the situation might have been a little different now but that didn’t mean that Angus hadn’t been Archie’s best friend since first year and knowing the little ways to get a reaction out of the other was second nature. He would stop smirking.. eventually.

Angus wasn’t quite so much of a soft touch but he was working on building a relationship with the kids that meant he was letting her get away with it too. It wasn’t that hard to do considering how laid back he was, he’d sort of assimilated himself as their dad’s ’cool boyfriend’. “I’ve always seen you as a cat person..” he pondered, taking a sip of his own drink. “Maybe it’s just because you ARE more like a cat.” No explanation necessary there and really it was a compliment depending on which way you looked at it. “If you were really concerned about your weight, you could always come to the studio with me. I’ll coach it right out of you.” Honestly though, Archie was perfect the way he was.

“Kinda did.” Maybe not specifically but the Lions likely wouldn’t see it that way. As amusing as the thought of telling Matty was, he didn’t want to be in the firing line. “She’d get Allie involved and then you’d have two fiery Gryffindors after you and I unfortunately did not train to be a Healer” he snorted.

A naturally miserable face. Not miserable.. judgemental. That air of being unapproachable and yet in Angus’s opinion, once you got to know him, Archie was a laugh to be around. “Gotta learn to smile more, mate.” he teased. The impression of Katrina was spot on, that woman was sunshine and diamonds and positivity all wrapped up in a (never aging) brunette. “It’s all the cake. It’s impossible not to be happy when she is around.” Who DIDN’T smile when a large slice of Victoria sponge was placed in front of you?

“It’s not your thing.” He couldn’t describe why but performing for strangers was so much easier than dancing for those that he knew well. “It’s not about trust. You know I trust you.” He had taken a step back from the performance side and was settling into teaching and choreographing now.

“A cat person?” Arch looked up from his drink, an eyebrow arching. He'd never really thought about it before. The only pets they had growing up was his ma's Maltese, aptly named Fluff, and his dad's weird hairless cat. Both of which were elderly, so were only around when the triplets were young. Wait.. what on earth did Angus mean by that? “How am I aaanything like a cat?” He drawled with a roll of the eyes. No, no.. it really did warrant an explanation, Angus. He laughed, though, at the thought of being coached by Ang. “You'll make me dance it off? Mate, I have two left feet. You do NOT want that responsibility.”

“Look. I'm the lawyer and I didn't say anything directly about Matty OR Allie being idiots. It was a generalisation. It wouldn't stand up in court.” Probably. Thankfully, he had never seen Matty get violent. It was more likely that she'd make fun of him until he begged for forgiveness.

“I smile all the time.” He grinned a rictus, big and fake and sarcastic at his partner. Hmph. Just because he didn't walk around looking like the Cheshire Cat (cats again). “The cake helps, but she's all sugar and rainbows. It's infectious.”

Back to the dancing and Arch listened to Angus. “I might not like dancing myself but it's entertaining to watch.” He understood where Angus was coming from on a superficial level. But still.. they were together now. “I show you my strengths. Hell, I even show you my weaknesses. Is it really that scary for you?”

Look, he couldn’t wholly explain it but there was just a vibe that cat and dog people gave off that separated them from each other. Archie’s parents precisely fit that vibe. Dog people were open and sociable like Kat. “You know.. Independent, a little serious, more selective with your circle. It’s not a bad thing.” More like his Da in many ways. Angus was more of the laid back type that likely wouldn’t have connected with someone who was constantly changing direction every five seconds.

Angus was of the opinion that you didn’t have to be a good dancer to enjoy doing it, not for exercise purposes anyway. “I’ve taught worse, I’m sure” he smirked. “You must’ve danced at your wedding.” Unless he stood there like a spare part whilst his ex-wife danced around him. Or maybe they did that awkward sway thing.

Ugh. Lawyers always knew what to say to get themselves out of a situation didn’t they? “I’m fairly certain that those two couldn’t care less about that” he chuckled. The relationship that the Ackerly’s had with each other was admirable, he liked his siblings but the family weren’t close in the same way. He experienced first hand how much they argued and teased each other but at the end of the day they’d defend one another to the ends of the earth.

The fake smile emanating from Archie’s face was strangely uncomfortable. “Nah, don’t like it.” he laughed. “Much prefer the resting serious face.” It wasn’t even that Archie never smiled. “Then there’s Honey who is basically the same person just blonder.” Literally he meant but maybe figuratively too.

“I never said it was scary” the former Ravenclaw argued back. “I don’t perform anymore anyway so..” So this argument was a dud. He couldn’t explain why he didn’t like it when people he was close to watched, perhaps it was the thought of being a disappointment, or it was an added pressure to not make a mistake.
