The Robin Hood in Millhouses first appears in the records in 1822. Local pub enthusiasts have collected half a hundred entries from trade directories and siomilar sources from 1822 to 1951. The name is cited variously as Robin Hood (seven times from 1822 to 1879), Robin Hood and Little John (1841 and 1859), Robin Hood Inn (1861) and Robin Hood Hotel (1911).[1] UK Pub History lists information on publicans for the years 1879-1919.[2] The pub is included as "Robin Hood & Little John P.H." on the 6" O.S. map of Yorkshire published 1854 and surveyed 1851, as "Robin Hood Hotel (P.H.)" on the 25" O.S. map of Yorkshire published 1893 and surveyed 1875-90 as well as the 25" O.S. map of Derbyshire published 1898 and revised 1896. Some other maps have simply "P.H.", while others do not indicate or label the pub in any way.
