I developed a list of inns and taverns for my "TOR Guide to the Shire", but I've recently found a need to expand and modify it a bit. The All-Welcome Inn was named only in Tolkien's 1960 rewrite of The Hobbit which was never completed; the Northway is the road that branches north from the Great East Road and passes through Oatbarton to end at Greenfields. All below The All-Welcome Inn are original inventions.

Inns and Taverns of the Shire

The Shire might have more eating and drinking establishments per capita than any other region of Middle-earth. Most have few, if any, rooms to accommodate Big Folk, the best bet being the Bridge Inn on the Great East Road at the Brandywine Bridge. The Shire’s best-known Inns and drinking establishments include:

- The Green Dragon, an inn on the Hobbiton side of Bywater.
- The Ivy Bush, a modest inn located on the Bywater road in Hobbiton.
- The Golden Perch, an inn in Stock, said to have the best beer in Eastfarthing.
- The Bridge Inn at the west end of the Brandywine Bridge.
- The Floating Log, a popular inn in Frogmorton.
- The All-Welcome Inn just west of Frogmorton, where the Northway meets the East Road.
- The Kings' Way, an inn located in Waymeet.
- The Fair Weather Inn at Michel Delving.
- The Diggs, a tavern in Michel Delving.
- The Thirsty Fox, an inn at Greenholm on the western border of the Shire.
- The Hammer and Tong, an inn at Oatbarton that is run by the wife of the local blacksmith.
- The Rabbit Hole, a tavern in Greenfields.
