At least for thirty years or so inhabitants of Upper Green, Langley, Essex, could quench their thirst at the Robin Hood on Bull Lane.

The Pub Wiki lists records for the years 1933-37 only.[1] However, we can extend the documented life of this pub a bit, for it is included on a 25" O.S. map of the area published in 1921 (surveyed 1919) and on 6" O.S. maps published in 1924 (rev. 1919), 1950 (rev. 1946–49) and 1951 (rev. 1946). It is labelled 'B.H. (for 'beer house') on the maps (see Maps below). Websites listing real estate sales know the building as the 'Old Robin Hood'.[2]
