Quill and Tankard
The Quill and Tankard is an inn located in Oldtown. There, Citadel novices such as Mollander, Alleras, Roone and Pate go to drink. It is renowned for its fearsomely strong cider. The serving wenches also entertain men.
The inn stands on an island in the Honeywine. It is a tall, timbered building that leans toward the south and has a torchlit terrace. In six hundred years it has never closed. When Maester Aemon was a young novice he used to go to the Quill and Tankard. When Egg and Ser Duncan the Tall came to visit him they went there too. All the serving wenches dote on Alleras, even Rosey who sometimes touches him on the arm when she brings him wine.

A Feast For Crows
Alleras buys Mollander, Roone and Pate a round of cider at the Quill and Tankard to celebrate his copper link. The group talks of Daenerys Targaryen and the rumors of her three dragons emanating from Qarth. Pate is occupied with thoughts of Rosey whom he is in love with, and the Alchemist whom he met three days prior.
|“||Though the tall, timbered building leaned toward the south the way novices sometimes leaned after a tankard, Pate expected that the inn would go on standing for another six hundred years, selling wine and ale and fearsomely strong cider to rivermen and seamen, smiths and singers, priests and princes, and the novices and acolytes of the Citadel.||”|
