MEDIEVAL INNS AND TAVERNS

Inns and taverns began to appear in the twelfth and thirteenth century in England but we not considered common until the fifteenth century.

Travelers that would come into town could find lodging in inns or could buy drinks in taverns.

In a tavern scene it would be considered common sight for people to sing, gamble, or seek prostitution.

Both women and men were allowed in taverns since drinking was by far their favorite recreation.

In those times one could buy three gallons of beer, ale, or wine for one penny.

MEDIEVAL TAVERNS

Taverns rarely provided travelers with lodging or feasts for the night.

Most taverns were front rooms of peoples houses where they would brew ale and let others come and buy beer for profit.

Due to spending all evening in a local pub, there were several fatal accidents that followed drunken visitors.

One mother was said to have accidently let her child slip from her lap into a boiling pot of milk and the child was mortally burned.

MEDIEVAL INNSUnlike taverns which had a few rooms and a cellar full of wine, Inns had several rooms and building, enough to keep guests upstairs, separate rooms for the innkeeper and their family, a large drinking room, a kitchen, and a brew house.

There was also space in a warehouse for cargo and barns for the horses and storage.

MEDIEVAL INNS Monasteries sometimes built inns at the center of pilgrimage to

attract wary travelers.

Those travelers would suffice

with a warm room and a mattress

or some straw on the floor, and

one would rarely find a

comfortable bed to sleep on.

Taverns would put out makeshift signs with branches and leaves to signify that people could buy wine.

Inns would stick pictorial signs on poles out of the wall in the fourteenth century.

Because wine was more expensive than beer or ale, prosperous patrons were catered to.

Taverns provided for the higher classes while inns provided cheap beer and ale for the lower, poorer classes.
