The Tasty Packet Tavern

tastypacket.jpg

Although it doesn't boast the international reputation enjoyed by The Bowing Swan, this out-of-the-way tavern is considered among locals to be Dol Amroth's hidden gem. Situated on one of the quieter wharfs in the city's harbour, this small but welcoming tavern has something for everyone. It is run by Beldaer, a retired sailor who runs one of Dol Amroth's many shipping companies. His good reputation, as well as an irresistible menu, keep the tavern busy. It's easy to get lost in the cheerful hum of music and voices that rattle the rough-hewn beams until all hours.
