The Green Dragon™ Inn
The Green Dragon™ Inn featured in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy as the local meeting place for all the residents of Hobbiton. It was the perfect place to satisfy their thirst, enjoy a meal and gossip about the comings and goings of The Shire. The inn also makes an appearance in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
All the interior scenes for the films were shot in studios in Wellington, but now that same interior has been faithfully recreated at Hobbiton Movie Set. Our guests now walk to The Green Dragon as part of their tour and can step inside this amazing building.
As part of your Hobbiton™ Movie Set tour all guests will now visit the inn and will receive one complimentary refreshment of our exclusively crafted Southfarthing™ range.
The Green Dragon Inn has a blackboard menu available of traditional Hobbit fare. Please click here to see our menu. The Green Dragon Inn also has a function menu available to preorder for inbound groups or private tours which during the day will be served in the themed Marquee.
