A drink in The Green Dragon.

With The World’s End now in cinemas, reminding us just how much some people are willing to put up with for a night in the pub, we decided to take a look at pubs in film more widely. How realistic are they? What do you need to know before you visit? And if you could choose to drink in any pub in film, what would it be?

Laurie Cansfield, who runs www.properpubs.tv, a site dedicated to showing films about pubs, was quick to respond to the latter question. “There's something about an Olde Worlde pub that inspires a feeling of adventure and simpler times,” he said. “If we're talking fictional pubs then the Green Dragon from Lord Of The Rings is a good contender. It's got ale, which I like, and there's rarely any trouble there by the looks of it. »
