The Robin Hood.

The Robin Hood is a public house in Clifton Reynes. The pub dates all the way back to 1577, but it traded under the name of Carpenters Arms until at least as late as 1830. However, by 1839 it had become the Robin Hood, sometimes the Robin Hood & Little John. The excellent UK Pub History site lists information on publicans etc. for the years 1839 to 1935.[1] To this we can add Slater's Directory for 1850 in which the pub is listed as Robin Hood and Little John, the publican a Thomas Hobbs.[2] The earliest map reference known to IRHB is the 25" O.S. map of the area published in 1882 (see Maps section below).

As the village of Clifton Reynes is at the end of a cul-de-sac, the pub has sent its sign a good 350 metres east to an intersection where more travellers are likely to see it.
