This inn was favoured by Sam's father Hamfast Gamgee and his neighbour Daddy Twofoot, as well as many other Hobbits of the Hobbiton area. The Ivy Bush was a centre of gossip and story-telling, and it was here that the Hobbiton residents gathered to exchange fantastical tales of Elves, dragons and treasure-hunting, as well as (rather more usually) the latest doings in the Shire. — lorebook
"The history and character of Mr. Bilbo Baggins became once again the chief topic of conversation; and the older folk suddenly found their reminiscences in welcome demand. No one had a more attentive audience than old Ham Gamgee, commonly known as the Gaffer. He held forth at The Ivy Bush, a small inn on the Bywater road..." — The Fellowship of the Ring, by Tolkien
