About the Pub

An imposing corner pub with bar, lounge and courtyard area. Refurbished to a very high standard as part of Lincoln Green and Everards Brewery Partnership programme 'Project William'. The bar features memorabilia to the now defunct Arnold/Daybrook 'Home Ales'. The lounge is a luxurious area featuring details of the pubs history and that of the local area. The rear courtyard is a sun trap with seating, a smokers shelter and a totally covered side area which doubles as a skittle alley. The stables area is available for hire. Brewery advertising is present on the courtyard walls, together with previous signs used by the pub. The 'Real Cider Wall' behind the bar features 4 taps dispensing real ciders from small local producers and further afield. Nottingham CAMRA Pub of the Year 2015, and National CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2015.

Historic Interest

A former Home Ales tied house. The 1823 Alehouse Recognizances for the Broxtowe Hundred show the Robin Hood & Little John under Elizabeth Rimmer (County Archives C/QD/LV/4/3/2). Known as the Robin Hood in 1855, it was a fully licensed establishment under W. Leverton and in 1876 the publican was George Oliver Wilson (Post Office Directories). In November 2017, the Robin Hood & Little John's freehold (NT209297) was held by EVERARDS BREWERY LIMITED (Reg. No. 319261). The cave cellars measure 8m x 3m and include a cockpit and a vat.
