Another Transtemporal Inn

I have found another inn of indeterminate ontological status to add to Poul Anderson's Old Phoenix and Neil Gaiman's Inn of the Worlds' End. In Alan Moore's Voice Of The Fire, an English pub called Labour In Vain is often unnoticed, seems not always to be there and initially looks as if derelict but, when it is entered, the reader recognizes characters from other chapters/centuries.
