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.

He was sitting at a table by himself, trying not to make it look like he was watching Dawson. He had a paper in front of him, and he was reading about the Champions, eating lunch... and also kind of watching Dawson. But he only wanted to make sure that his brother was being treated fairly.

She sat at a table next to Daniel, reading a book on Ilvermorny history. The little time she had spent there this year filling in was nice, but she really missed being at Hogwarts. It felt weird being in London and not being at the school.

He put the paper down and noticed a... sort of familiar.... looking woman next to him. He could practically hear his sister's telling him to at least say hello... so he did. "Hi." That was dumb, he needed more than that. "Are you an Ilvermorny graduate or do you just find the Americans interesting?" That probably sounded dumb.

“Oh, no, I went to Hogwarts. I used to teach in America though, and was filling in for the headmaster over there briefly while he was over here.”

He nodded. "Sounds like quite the adventure. Did they find someone else to take your place, or could you simply not take the Americans anymore and fled back home?" he asked, with a teasing twinkle in his eye.

“The deputy finally returned to the school after a sabbatical, so I was able to head back here. But, truthfully I was getting a little tired of them.” , she said with a small smile.

"Interesting," he said nodding. "Given that usually one would expect Potions and Herbology to go more hand-in-hand. How long have you been teaching?"

“I’m really not great at caring for and growing the plants, but great and finding what they can be useful for.”, she said. “I think I’ve been teaching about 14 years? I started at Hogwarts, and then did along stint at Ilvermorny, before coming back here a few years ago.”

He nodded. "I've been a Ministry worker ever since graduation. Worked in several different departments when I first started out-- PA work, and the like-- to just get a feel for which department I wanted to be in, long-term. Education won out. But... I don't have what it takes to be a teacher. So I applaud and respect you on that front."

“You sound a lot like my mother and brother on that front. They both started out as assistants and worked their way up, going through many departments in the process.” She smiles at his praise. “Thank you. It’s hard sometimes but I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.”

She nodded. “That would be Mom and brother.”, she said with a shy smile. “For full disclosure, my sister, Emilee, is the current Head of Games and Sports, and my sister-in-law, Renee, was the Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot up until this year.”

“Every one of them ministry related. I’m sort of the oddity of the family... my sister was with me for awhile, but once she left quidditch, she too went the ministry route.”

“Which is probably better, in my opinion. When I was younger, I felt that I was successful only because of who my family was...I’ve grown out of that mentality, but when you have so many high profile people in your family, you can’t help but wonder.”

He nodded. He contemplated asking her whether or not any of them had any pull in a Squib-related department, but figured that would be imposing. "I can imagine."

"I suppose... continue proving myself in the department to the point where... if I were to say something, my voice wouldn't just be heard, but potentially respected enough to be acted upon."
