The Robin Hood is a detached pub situated in the village of Swannington, a former mining village in Leicestershire between Coalville and Ashby-de-la Zouch. The pub is surrounded by houses, has excellent local transport links and is well supported by the local community. The area is also popular with people enjoying a drive out to the more rural parts of Leicestershire.

Pub Layout

The pub has two distinctive trading areas both served from the prominent central bar servery. On the left is the main bar area which is regularly used by the locals to enjoy a drink and to watch the live sports – there is a dartboard for the customers to enjoy as well as two TV screens. On the right of the pub there is a relaxed dining space with softer furnishings which can hold around 35 covers. The décor throughout is traditional yet fresh which is in keeping with the tradition of the building . The pub is very well maintained with both loose and fixed seating throughout. It is eclectically balanced with both wooden floors and carpeted areas. Externally to the rear of the property there is a large, enclosed beer garden with around eight benches, and to the front is a seating area with a further three benches along with parking spaces for up to six cars.

The pub currently trades as a well supported community local with a traditional homemade food offering. The drinks range caters for all with a good wine menu, popular cask ales and premium spirit range. The kitchen currently serves food seven days a week, with Sunday lunch being very popular and they also have a strong rhythm of the week with midweek themes offering steak nights & pies. There is scope to develop the current offering with quiz nights and the introduction of live music at a weekend, along with possibly developing pub sports through a darts team. The potential candidates need to continue the good work of the current licensees and embrace village life.

The private accommodation is in good order and consists of three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and sitting room.
