[B]lack cats, chocolate frogs, and dragon cookies all call the newly opened Green Dragon Pie House and Tea Room home. Located at the North Shire Holiday retreat at Golden Hill Farm in the U.K., the tea room was inspired by the Harry Potter universe. The Green Dragon is in a building that could double as a groundskeeper’s cottage with cozy, eclectic furnishings to match. Sweet and savory pies are both featured on the menu in addition to toadstool canapes, cakes, pastries, and finger sandwiches. The drink menu includes a wide selection of coffees and teas, as well as a special Green Dragon hot chocolate with a giant melting marshmallow, whipped cream, and a sprinkle of magic dust. Carol and Karl Cavendish, who own both the Green Dragon and North Shire, say that more Harry Potter attractions will be popping up at the estate, including a Ford Anglia parked outside, and a one-of-a-kind Weasley kitchen clock.
