Stock was a town in the north of the Marish, lying on the Stockbrook stream near to the banks of the River Brandywine in the Eastfarthing of the Shire.[1] The Golden Perch in Stock was said to have the finest beer in the Eastfarthing.

During Frodo's journey to Buckland, Frodo announced that he wished to straight across country to the Bucklebury Ferry. Pippin objected to the short cut, and mentioned the Golden Perch. The hobbits avoided Stock in order to keep Pippin away from there and prevent their journey from being delayed.[2]
