Nice place, beautiful scenery but pack with tourist.
May be dinner banquet is much better, not sure, haven't try yet.
Tips: prebook early for the night banquet.
It is always full if you book in the same week.

Food was delicious, ale and cider lovely. Fires lit and the atmosphere and attention to detail made it a very enjoyable experience. Remember to go and use the toilets all beautifully done as well.

Go for the backdrop (location) stay because they serve very good food and beer. I highly recommend it.

Most people will visit this as part of a tour of the Hobbiton movie set, where you have a short time for a drink and will then be moved on to the end of the tour. You can, however, book it for private functions: it's miles away from anywhere but a must for Tolkien fans!

Visited for the evening banquet tour and WOW ! We were all blown away by the quality and quantity of the food, best meal we’ve eaten in ages. The service by the team was also fantastic, cant recommend the banquet tour enough!
