The Prancing Pony was a large inn and important gathering place at Bree.
The Pony was located just where the East Road bent round the foot of Bree Hill, within the levee that stretched around the town.
The building was described to be three stories tall with many windows, the centre of activity being the big common-room where the world renowned beer, produced by the owner Barliman Butterbur, was served near a cheery log fire.
The Prancing Pony had been built long before the time of the War of the Ring, when traffic on the roads had been much greater. The inn had been kept by the Butterbur Family for generations as a convivial gathering place for Men, Dwarves, and Hobbits (both those living in Bree and travellers from the Shire). Despite diminished numbers of visitors the inn had remained an important centre of news, since Bree was at the crossroads of the East Road and the Greenway.
It was perhaps in the Pony where Frodo Baggins, Sam, Pippin and Merry first met Aragorn in 29 September T.A. 3018, and we all know the sequel.
On a 16x16 base sits my microscale reproduction of pure fantasy of The Prancing Pony, the signboard is inspired by the one seen in Lord Of The Rings videogames.
An extremely detailed model that would make a great display set for both Tolkien and architecture lovers.
