A Tavern with the Best Food in Fanta's Meadow
"Welcome to the Pin Oak Tavern! We've got the best food in town and our prices are a steal! Sip from a gilded chalice and put your feet up for the night; your spirits will never be low when you stay with us." - Calola Cherrycheeks, Owner of the Pin Oak Tavern
The rustic Pin Oak provides meals and a typical selection of wines, ales, and beers for the citizens and visitors of Fanta's Meadow. This establishment has better food than its neighbor, the Merry Rogue Tavern, but they have the best drink selection in town. The inn has ten rooms for rent plus a common room.
The interior of the Pin Oak Tavern is nicer than a common off-road shack, but not quite up to the same standards as say, a Gold Dragon Inn. The rooms offered are simple, containing naught more than a bed, a dresser, and a nightstand. It is said that the rug in the room at the end of the hall "really ties the room together..."
The meals offered inside the Pin Oak may seem exotic to outsiders, but are perfectly normal fare for those of Fanta's Meadow. Rabbit and Leek Stew, Roasted Game Hen, and Halfling Festbread are all prepared in-house with ingredients grown and harvested in the surrounding area. The dishes are based on generations-old family recipes.
There is a trap door hidden beneath the rug in a room of the Pin Oak. Down the rope ladder and through an increasingly-small tunnel is a safe house and a Thieves Guild for Rogues. The Fanta's Meadow Thieves Guild is comprised of mostly Halfling members (with at least one Gnome) who are actually quite adept at their craft. The standard welcome by Calola Cherrycheeks is in fact a coded message in Thieves Cant.
