One of just two places in Durham known to have been named after the outlaw was the Robin Hood, a 19th century public house in Leamside, about 800 m WSW of West Rainton. It is indicated on the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1861 but must have gone out of business by 1898, as the revision of the map published that year does not have the pub indicated (see Maps section below).
