So they head to a stock fantasy tavern, which will be of wooden construction and generally poorly lit. The drinks, generally either [[AllBeerIsAle ale]] or mead, will be of [[ATankardOfMooseUrine questionable quality]]. Nobody there may even ''realize'' that mead and beer aren't the same thing[[note]]Mead is made by fermenting honey. No hops or barley are involved.[[/note]]. Other features may include:

* In the ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic'' games, there's one in every town, possibly two in a large city, and a few outside of towns. These are {{Rest And Resupply Shop}}s for the franchise, although each varies in cost and the quantity you can buy. Many have variou other functions, like obtaining information and hiring henchmen.

* Many players of ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' will build a nice place for their alcohol-dependent TooDumbToLive smiley faces to get properly soused, but it would technically be a "dining room" or "meeting area" until .42 (released late 2015) allowed players to officially designate taverns.

* Every town or city and every other village or hamlet in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has at least one of these, plus there's several in the middle of nowhere on the road.



* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has mead, bar brawls, bar wenches, wood taverns, sellswords (a term for mercenaries), fetch quest givers, the works. The game advises you to head to the nearest tavern if you're looking for work; even if nobody has a quest for you, you're sure to overhear a snippet of InfallibleBabble about a nearby location from the barman or patrons. Amusingly, a few bandits will complain about the native Nords' love of mead, since they prefer a good beer.
