It resides on the southern banks of the Bywater Pool, a widening of the river known as The Water. Bywater is known far and wide for its renowned tavern, the Green Dragon. Its owner, Gerd Whitfoot, may be found outside its entrance where she also is the grocer of Bywater.

On SR 1 November 1419 (TA 3019) (which is after the period LOTRO depicts), after returning to the Shire, Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck, and Peregrin "Pippin" Took were arrested by the First Eastfarthing Troop in Frogmorton. Saruman, who had taken control of the Shire and was known as the Chief, ordered that they be taken to Bywater. On the morning of November 2, 3019, Frodo and his companions were escorted toward Bywater by several Shirriffs. At the Green Dragon, Merry, Pippin, and Sam fought off several ruffians who then fled to Hobbiton for reinforcements from the Chief's Men. The Hobbits also rallied reinforcements: Merry rallied Hobbits from around Bywater, Sam went to Tom Cotton's Farm, Pippin rode to Tookland. On the morning of 3 November the Battle of Bywater was fought on the Bywater Road.
