The Old Phoenix And The Worlds' End
-copied from here. See also here.
A taproom with a door to a kitchen and stairs to bedrooms and that's it. In this respect, the Old Phoenix differs from Neil Gaiman's Inn of The Worlds' End:
"I don't know how big this place is. If I didn't know any better, I'd think it had grown since I first arrived."
-Neil Gaiman, Worlds' End (New York, 1994), p. 91.
"I lost the staircase for a while. DAMNEDest thing.
"The interior of this inn can be somewhat confusing, if you are unused to it." (p. 115)
A panel where the tables in the inn are suddenly at one end of a larger crowded space under a roof held up by wooden pillars with daylight apparently at the far end. (p 141)
