""Who else had a key, then? There's been a spare key hanging in the gardener's cottage as long as I can remember! Nobody forced the door last night! No broken windows! All Frank had to do was creep up to the big house while we was all sleeping..."
—Cook at the Hanged Man[src]

The cook working at The Hanged Man was a resident of Little Hangleton in 1943. When all three Riddles living in the area were murdered in their own house, and Frank Bryce was framed for the murder (the real murderer being Voldemort) the townsfolk gossiped about it all around town. That night, many residents converged at the Hanged Man, the local tavern, to voice their opinions, the cook being one of them. He, like the rest, believed Frank had committed the murder.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • His statement about knowing of a key hanging in Frank's shed implies that he had visited the place at least once.
