Happy to oblige - http://www.thisisstaffordshire.co.uk/ ... 2533710-detail/story.html

- from which comes this:

"And far from the glamour of the darting world, they have chosen to play on the town's literary heritage by naming a small side room after JRR Tolkien – who is believed to have written much of Lord Of The Rings while downing cask ales in what was The Green Dragon."

We were inspired to put up a blog post ourselves about the north Staffordshire claims. Their history has a lot of twists and turns. We couldn't find out if The Swan in Leek still has a "Tolkien Room": the owners who named it were evicted a couple years on, and the pub has now been bought by a corporation who are renovating.
