The Green Dragon was a popular inn of Bywater and was frequented by Hobbits from both Bywater itself and the neighboring settlement of Hobbiton.

History Edit

While the precise date of the inn's construction is unknown, by TA 2941[1] it was already a popular location, when Bilbo Baggins met Thorin and Company there at the outset of their quest.[2]

In TA 3018, Samwise Gamgee was present at the pub while repeating a story told by his cousin Hal, who believed he had seen a walking tree in the Northfarthing, though Ted Sandyman laughed at him.[3]

Frodo Baggins regularly visited the inn as did his friends Sam Gamgee, Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took. When they returned from their quest in TA 3019, they found the inn ransacked, with its windows broken. It was most likely restored following the Battle of Bywater and liberation of the Shire.[4]

Portrayal in adaptations Edit

Films Edit

The inn appears much as it is described in J.R.R. Tolkien's works in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings film trilogy. In The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Merry and Pippin recite The Green Dragon, a song composed in honor of the inn, while at Edoras.

Video games Edit

In the 2002 video game The Fellowship of the Ring, the Green Dragon Inn is a playable location, where one can talk with the Head Sheriff about the Wolves that have been entering the Shire and speak with other hobbits to get an idea of the general lifestyle of a Hobbit. Also, this is the place where Bilbo Baggins meets up with Gandalf and the Dwarves.
