The Quill and Tankard is an inn located in Oldtown. Novices from the Citadel go there to drink. The inn is renowned for its fearsomely strong cider.[1] The serving wenches also entertain men.


The inn is located in Oldtown. It stands on an island in the Honeywine. It is a tall, timbered building that leans toward the south and has a torchlit terrace.[1]


In six hundred years, the Quill and Tankard has never closed.[1]

When Maester Aemon was a young novice he used to go to the Quill and Tankard.[2] When his younger brother, Prince Aegon Targaryen, and Ser Duncan the Tall, the knight he squired for, came to visit him, they went there too.[3]

Known serving wenches

  • Emma - oldest of the serving wenches
  • Rosey - the daughter of Emma

Alleras buys Mollander, Roone and Pate a round of cider at the Quill and Tankard to celebrate his copper link. There, they talk of Daenerys Targaryen and the rumors of her three dragons emanating from Qarth.[1]


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.[1]
