Inn of the Kneeling Man
The main building sits along the shore where the Red Fork of the Trident bends. It has long, low wings that stretch out. The lower story is made of grey stone, the upper one of whitewashed wood. Its roof is slate and has a stables and an arbor. It reportedly brews a good ale. Above its door is a painted sign of a king on his knees.
King Torrhen Stark came south with his forces after the Field of Fire but upon seeing Aegon's dragon, Balerion, and the massive host at his back, he knelt and surrendered his crown. The inn is said to be built where Torrhen submitted.
A Storm of Swords
Brienne of Tarth, Ser Cleos Frey and Ser Jaime Lannister stop at the inn on their way south. They meet a man, Husband, who has taken over duties as innkeeper, as well as a crossbow-wielding boy he had adopted. The innkeeper's wife, Sharna, is not there at that time. After taking a meal, Brienne overpays the man for three horses but refuses to stay the night. She also disregards his advice on choice of roads, suspecting him to be in league with bandits and leading them to ambush.
