The Green Dragon is the tavern and inn for Bywater. [31.8S, 69.6W]

After the current Lotro era Sam returns to the Shire, together with Frodo, Merry and Pippin, and they found a depressing sight: "when they reached The Green Dragon, the last house on the Hobbiton side, now lifeless and with broken windows (...)" — The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King, both by Tolkien
