The Leaky Cauldron

Wikia DARP - The Leaky Cauldron 01

The Leaky Cauldron, currently run by Jennifer Thompson, is an old-established, and highly popular, watering hole, disguised to Muggle eyes as a broken-down shop front on Charing Cross Road. It also provides the pedestrian access to Diagon Alley in its back yard.
Wikia DARP - The Leaky Cauldron sign
Built in 1500 by Daisy Dodderidge, the first landlady and proprietress, it has flourished under liberal and fascist regimes alike, always managing to keep its doors open, and the passing trade passing through.

Great figures on both ends of the spectrum, from Voldemort to the Weasleys, and from Harry and Hagrid to Dumbledore and Dobby, have rubbed shoulders here with the throngs preparing to brave Diagon Alley, and the glares of Gringotts' goblins.

Former landlords and landladies include the Protean Tom, who ran the place for most of the 20th century, and Hannah Abbott, wife of Neville Longbottom.

Many people looking to discover up-to-the-minute gossip, if not news, find the Cauldron a better, warmer source than the Daily Prophet, although some Prophet stories have certainly been hatched within these walls. Muggle-Borns, and particularly Muggle parents, often get their first taste of the Wizarding world, literally as likely as not, here, and so it holds a special place in many students' hearts, no matter how long since they graduated.

She was sitting by herself, in her usual corner. She had lunch here, because she felt it was kind of pathetic to eat at her desk. At least here she had a chance for human interaction. Going from work to home and back to work... she needed some friends. Here, at lunch... she had a chance to meet some. Her corner was in sight of the door, so every once and awhile, when she heard the bells jingle, she'd look to see who was coming in.

This time it was Mason, and he looked around for a second before spotting Eilis. Smiling a bit, he looks at her, "Mind if I sit?"

She smiled back at her old friend and nodded. "Please," she said, gesturing. "How are ya? It feels like it's been... a while."

She looked shocked at the news, but given his reasoning... she probably shouldn't be. None of what Mason said of himself surprised her in the slightest. "And... ya just now figured that out? Or did she...?" she asked questioningly. She shook her head. "If ya don't want to talk about it... ya don't hafta."

"I figured it out when she was gone without a word for like two weeks. And since she works in the Invisibility Task Force... she's got zero reason to do that? So I left her a note if she ever comes back to our place, which I kinda doubt to be honest. She's just way too controlling for me."

"My sister is good. She's at Hogwarts still. She's forgiven me at this point, work's been slow, but considering what I do, that's a good thing. The goal of my job is to put myself out of work."

"Yeah, I guess... I just. I think I'm a decent Auror, but I'm pretty sure I'm a wretched role model to kids, ya know. Like growing up I always looked up to the Aurors. Not sure I want kids looking up to me."

"Oh," she said. "I... I mean..." she was a bit dumbstruck. She hadn't really considered that repayment for everything he'd done. "I hope ya know I..." She couldn't find the proper words.
