The Blue Moon Inn is the tavern and inn in South-central Varrock. The NPCs inside play a role in several quests. Johnny the beard is involved in the Shield of Arrav quest, Dr Harlow features in the Vampyre Slayer quest, and there is also a treasure chest upstairs that plays a part in Pirate's Treasure. Players can buy beer from the Bartender for 2 coins each.
When players talk to the bartender and ask for tips, he will refuse to give them any and break the fourth wall, saying that it 'makes the computer game too easy'. If a player asks 'What game?' he will explain that RuneScape is nothing but a computer game, at which the player character will call him mad and terminate the conversation.
In RuneScape Classic, before the release of RuneScape 2, the inn used to be a popular party room, with players holding parties there regularly. This practice has since died out, and the inn is now of little interest to most players, though it is a location involved in several quests.
The tavern is featured in the lore story Worth Comes in Battle, which details the time three of the Signature Heroes - Ariane, Ozan and the Raptor - stopped by for drinks. During that time, they were seen by Balek, the son of the barkeeper, who summoned his friends Jonty and Kherian.
