The old inn known as The Prancing Pony, a meeting place for the people of the Bree-land, and for travellers from farther afield. A large stone, three-storeyed building, the inn consisted of a main house and two wings enclosing a courtyard, with rooms designed for Men and Hobbits alike. The Butterbur family were the traditional innkeepers of The Pony, and at the time of the War of the Ring, Barliman Butterbur was its master.
