The sign of the Golden Perch, as depicted in The Lord of the Rings Online.
The Golden Perch was an inn in the township of Stock, north of Bucklebury near the eastern borders of the Shire. It was said by Pippin to serve the best beer in the Eastfarthing.[1] It was probably favoured by anglers hence the name.[2]

[edit] Etymology

The name refers to the fish perch (and not a land-measure or bird-perch).[2]
