Jayne Blackshaw and family


Standing on the boundary of the Peak District National Park, the Robin Hood is the only remaining pub in the village of Rainow. The Robin Hood is a very pleasant, cozy, pub with a good sized restaurant serving good food. It is a Punch Taverns house.

October 2017: Very quickly the recent new tennants have recognised that it is simply not possible to make a living in this pub with their available resources. Jayne has let us know that she has agreed with Punch that she will stay on until a new tenant is appointed. This means that it will be business as usual but we ask everyone to do what they can to support her and her family as she really cares about our pub.
