Pass Time with Good Company
While inns provided lodgings for travelers, taverns were drinking houses for the community. A sign founds a local drinking house hung above the door that would display an image of branches and leaves to indicate wine. Taverns were limited in their scope and seldom offered lodgings, or large and varied amounts of food is the usual fare. Taverns specialized in the pastimes of gambling, singing, and possibly seeking companionship. Pubs were an integral part of the community and a cornerstone of village life.
