The Prancing Pony is a landmark and an interior in Bree in Bree-land. [29.6S, 51.2W]

The Prancing Pony lies by a sharp bend of the Great East Road in north-eastern Bree. From the Pony the great road runs southward over the Market Square and beyond, and it runs westward for the West Gate and beyond, eventually reaching Rivendell and Ered Luin respectively. Thus the Pony has a steady stream of visitors and guests from all over the Middle-earth, among them Strider and Gandalf being the most renowned. The Pony has three entrances: the main door right to Barly's desk, a back door for deliveries, and a hobbit door at the northern side.

Inside the Pony Barliman Butterbur welcomes any visitor alike and promptly gives best possible service. The Pony also houses a Barber, the Bard of Bree, a Healer, a Minstrel Trainer, quest givers, and guests. At the square of the tavern there are a mailbox and milestone, as well as quest givers. All of this makes this particular tavern a busy place, no doubt Burly forgets a thing every now and then.

Lore

"Upon arrival in Bree, weary travelers will want to make for the Prancing Pony, one of the town's oldest and most popular inns. The distinctive sign of a rearing, fat white pony marks the large building with its inviting arched entrance and pleasant courtyard, although it is likely that the sign will not be entirely necessary –as most seasoned travelers can direct those new to town to "The Pony," as is it commonly known. The Prancing Pony is owned and operated by Barliman Butterbur, the latest in the generations of Butterburs who have looked after the old inn with great care. Mr. Butterbur is assisted by two hobbits, Nob and Bob, who help with all matters from greeting guests, to preparing rooms and food, to looking after patrons' horses in the inn's stables. Although traffic along the major roads that intersect at Bree has diminished greatly over the years, The Prancing Pony remains the center of news and tales from far-distant lands, as it has for as long as anyone can remember.
"The Prancing Pony provides many essentials for adventurers in The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ , from food, to lodging, to news, as well as trading and general socializing. Those familiar with The Lord of the Rings will remember the common room in The Pony as the scene of the well-known first meeting of Frodo (then known as Mr. Underhill) and Aragorn (then known as Strider). The Prancing Pony is also frequented by the powerful yet secretive Gandalf the Grey, as it is well known throughout Bree that the mysterious wizard is on friendly terms with Mr. Butterbur, the inn's proprietor. However, travelers through Bree must even be wary when within the walls of the Prancing Pony, since not all the residents of the town are friendly to those who stand in opposition of the growing darkness in the east. Agents of shadow have been seen throughout the darkening streets of late, so even when resting comfortably at The Pony, adventurers in the land should be wary of speaking openly to strangers, and certainly should be aware not to take more ale than is good for them!" - lorebook
