Eat Like a Hobbit!

In JRR Tolkien’s books The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Silmarillion, the Hobbit feeding schedule is referred to many times.

I thought it would be fun to create my own restaurant based on that feeding schedule. I am taking liberties with the types of food offered. While the standard Middle Earth/Shire fare consists of mainly rich English dishes, some of mine will be a lighter foodstuffs.

For those that object to that, please feel free to stop reading now and head towards these two websites: and
