Dinning like Cersei

Do you get itchy by the thought of how many months are still remaining until season six starts? Did you mark in your calendar potential dates when ‚Winds of Winter‘ may come out ahead of the series, so that you stay updated about Westeros? Are you scandalized by the news that HBO is considering pushing back the premiere of GoT back in favor of another series? Then I can offer you a very pleasant way of comforting you through GoT-withdrawel period: ‘The Inn at the Crossroads’.
