The landlady is about a young man called Billy Weaver who travelled from London to Bath in a business trip aiming to work. He was recommended by a porter in the train station to stay in The Bell and Dragon as a cheap hotel. On his way, he was hypnotised by a bed and breakfast sign in a boardinghouse. He pressed the doorbell, and before he could lift his finger from the bell-button, the door opened and a middle-aged landlady appeared. She treated him generously, giving him a floor of his own to stay on, and charging him much less than he expected. She was somehow creepy, which Billy didn't notice at all. In the inn's guestbook, he sees that only two other guests have stayed there-one older, the other younger, and both having arrived earlier than 2 years prior. Billy finds the names vaguely familiar from the newspaper, and on further reflection recalls that they "were both famous for the same thing. (going missing) The landlady makes a comment about one of the two boys in past tense, to which Billy comments that they must have only left recently. The landlady replies that both of the guests are still residing at the inn. Billy then notices that the dog by the fireplace and the parrot he had noticed earlier were stuffed as he looks closer and touches the dog to examine it. She then tells him, "I stuff all my pets myself," and offers him more tea. Billy refuses because the tea "tasted faintly of bitter almonds" (a characteristic of cyanide). The author ends the story at its climax; the reader infers what happens to Billy Weaver from the hints provided in the story.
