The “village pub” in Little Hangleton, this is the place where the villagers gathered the night Tom Marvolo Riddle killed his father and grandparents, to gossip about the murders. Among the villagers present that evening were the Riddles’ cook and Dot, who remained permanently convinced that gardener Frank Bryce was to blame for the deaths (GF1).

The name of the pub may have special meaning: the Hanged Man is the name of a card found in a Tarot deck – a tool used in one form of Divination.
