'The Hobbit' Pub Threatened With Lawsuit

'The Hobbit' Pub Threatened With Lawsuit:

The pub, which has traded under the name for the last 20 years without incident, now faces closure if it does not change its name. It's yet another example of big business throwing its weight around to get its way. The pub's landlady said simply, 'I can't fight Hollywood.'"
