Bob was a Hobbit of Bree and worked the stables near The Prancing Pony. His counterpart was Nob, who worked as a servant at the inn. They were both hired by Barliman Butterbur, and make very minor appearances in the books; Nob moreso than Bob, and that was only due to his "slow-coachery".
Portrayal in AdaptationsEdit
Bob appeared in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (video game).
