Cox St Towards Swanswell Cox Street 1910. Robin Hood was a legendary outlaw in medieval England. His name is said to have spread in the nineteenth century as the Ancient Order of Foresters (founded in 1834) which opened new courts or lodges. Robin himself lived in Sherwood Forest with his merrie men and Maid Marian and acted like an unofficial tax collector, robbing the rich to give to the poor. To 1850 this was the KINGS ARMS, Cox Street. In 1889 it was purchased by Phillips and Marriott for £543 3s 0d and in 1899 they valued it at £1,250. In 1928 the pub closed in consideration of the removal of the license of the Empire Vaults, Smithford Street, to the Maudslay Hotel. The actual date of closure was 13th December 1928.
