The Rusty Lantern is a public house in Grubbo-by-the-Sea. The condition of the tavern in 966 GUE, was as follows: the cook was a man by the name of Grote Clutchcake (who left just before the close of the First Age of Magic), it was frequently occupied by a band of inhospitable bandits, and the wine cellar was the dwelling place for discipline crabs and rat-ants.
