Robin Hood Toby Hotel.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2017-12-20. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-10-24.

Toby Carvery at Hall Green, Birmingham, was formerly Toby Robin Hood Hotel and before that just the Robin Hood. Originally a private residence, the Robin Hood was converted to a public house in the 1920s to cater to visitors to the area who came in increasing numbers as the area, now easily reachable by tram from central Birmingham, became an attractive destination for single-day outings.[1] Although 'Robin Hood Hotel' was not the original form of its name, that form is used here to keep the page name distinct from that of Robin Hood (Hall Green), the area whose name inspired that of the public house. While the earlier revisions of the 25" O.S. map listed below include 'Robin Hood' as the name of the neighbourhood, the latest of them, published 1939 and revised in 1937, omits the name of the area but now includes 'Robin Hood Inn' in its place. UK Pub History has information on the publican for 1940 only.[2]
