VI.17.1 Pompeii. May 2011. Looking west towards ramp leading to entrance.
According to Fiorelli, the first entrance commencing from the Herculaneum Gate was an inn with annexed bar. Recognisable by the lowered ramp for the access of the wagons and animals, by the wide doorway introducing into an area, that had on the right the kitchen, the shelter for the vehicles, the stable, the latrine, and a large room from which one went down to the cellar and passed in a space enclosed between the city gate and the city wall, used for the rubbish, where various animal bones were found. On the left and in front of it were dormitories, and maybe even dining areas.

At the end of the block wall (under the greenery) would be another doorway, leading into a room with steps. 
Down these steps in the underground area, called a “cellar”, wine containers were discovered, according to Sir William Hamilton. 
He wrote –
“View of the ruins of the houses on the right-hand side of the street as you enter the gate.
A. The first house was thought to be an Inn. The bones of horses were found in the stables; and in the cellar, large earthen vessels for wine.”
