The Robin Hood, a public house, was located on the corner of Derby Road and Forest Road in Annesley, not quite 3 km SE of central Kirkby in Ashfield. 675 m NNE of the public house was found Robin Hood's Cave (Kirkby in Ashfield), while Robin Hood's Hills and Robin Hood's Chair are found c. 1.2 km NNE of the Robin Hood. The Robin Hood is indicated on O.S. maps of the area published 1878–c. 1948 (see Maps section below). There is a recently built pub/restaurant named the Badger Box on Derby Road, but this is ten metres or so north of the site of the Robin Hood, unless the course of Forest Road was changed a little.

Information on publicans for the years 1925-41 can be found at Pub History.[1]
