I glued one of the clear beer glasses from the Busch set to her hand as if she's just picked up an empty glass from the table and is chatting with the drinkers before picking up the next empty glass on the table.
Here's some updated pictures of the inn so far.
The main building's lower floor / bar. I still need to add a suitable landlord with sleeves rolled up and more customers.
Beer glasses and beer pumps from Busch (7783)
Barmaid from Bufferstop.
Another closer shot showing the barmaid with glass in hand.
The other side lower floor. I can't remember where I got the set of 2 different sized barrels from but the bin and the metal beer kegs are Bachmann and the trunk is from a Modelscene set. The stained glass windows are from scalescenery's ebay page or https://www.scalemodelscenery.co.uk/
For both sets of stairs, I measured the angle of my home stairs using a protractor at 50 degrees but this was too shallow so ended up making both the staircases 40 degrees.
I marked and cut out a triangle with the correct angle on paper, glued it to balsa wood with pritt stick and then used that as a template to cut them, removing the paper template afterwards.
I used a flat file to file the treads then painted both staircases brown.
