The Robin Hood & Little John on the east side of Whitmore Place is apparently recorded as early as 1804 – it certainly existed by 1814 – and closed in 1954.[1] Information on publicans gleaned from trade directories etc. from the period 1814–1954 can be found at UK Pub History (see Sources below).

While the pub evidently stayed at the same premises throughout its existence, its address was changed a couple of times when new streets were constructed and / or old ones renamed:

  • 1811-62. 16 Whitmore Place east
  • 1862-19??. 140 St Johns Road
  • After 1938 but no later than 1944. 256 Pitfield Street.[2]
