Led by Jojo Stanley and Warren Light, the campaign to save the Robin Hood pub in Sherwood has borne fruit. It is believed that the pub has been sold to what I call a 'gastro-pub chain'. The interior is being ripped out and doubtless we shall know soon the name of the purchaser company and what it intends to do with the premises.
The site on which the pub stands was advertised as a prime site for a residential development, but if I was a developer I would have weighed up the opposition before deciding to purchase. Any planning application for change of use of the land would have been opposed bitterly. So, congratulations to Jojo, Warren & Co for sticking up for the Sherwood community.
The significant issue about which nothing yet is known is whether the premises will have a bar, pool table, darts board, etc, or be solely for people intending to eat. The configuration of the building permits the former, so let's hope it happens.
