You approach the man and query him on which tavern is better.
"Count's Head is fer posh ones," he grunts. "Fer der likes of you and me, it's der Knight's Arms. It's much cheaper and you can have as much ale as you like fer 3 gold pieces."
Somehow you think that possibly the man has availed himself of this offer already today.
"Dey also talk much more in da Knight's Arms. If you want da local gossip, then you better head there."
Suddenly the man almost trips over and stumbles off drunkly. You are not sure his slurred words have been of any use to you.
Test your luck.
