Sarn - The Dark Times
Inn of The Welcome Wench
The square wooden sign showing a buxom and smiling girl holding a flagon of beer shows that this place must be the Inn of the Welcome Wench, a place renowned for its good food and excellent drink. Passing merchants make a point of stopping, as do many other wayfarers, and it is said the place is always filled with patrons.
The three story inn is run by Ostler Gundigoot the inn keeper and his wife Goodwife Gundigoot, who claims to have posed for the sign in her youth. Their two daughters, a couple of serving wenches, a pair of pot-boy apprentices and two stable hands fill the staff roster.
Food and ale at the Inn is priced higher than normal as it is the only inn for miles, but the place does serve quality. Choice venison, mutton, poached salmon, trout stuffed with specially prepared mixtures, goose roasted to golden brown, pork, steaming sausages, steak and kidney pie with mushrooms or truffles, squab stuffed peasant, and boiled crayfish in drawn butter are just a few of the epicurean delights which are served here.
The locally brewed ale and beer is supplemented by brews from other sites and wine, mead and brandy from all over Sarn.
