Here’s proof that people in New Zealand take The Hobbit very seriously. As if we needed more proof. They have now recreated ‘The Green Dragon’ where any Hobbit can rest his furry feet and have a fine mug of ale.
Middle Earth fanatics will want to pack up all of their Hobbit books, Middle Earth maps, and replica swords, then get on a plane right away and head down to New Zealand for a drink. The detail in this place is pretty amazing.
The pub opened last month in Hobbiton, outside of Matamata, New Zealand – which is where the films were shot. In all, it took a crew of 80 to build the place.
They didn’t just build the interior, but outside too. I can’t think of a better place to sit back, relax and enjoy a drink. Well, nowhere on my continent anyway.
