Local singer/songwriter Billy Bragg once compared an Amazon tribal war dance to typical Friday night activities at the Robin Hood. Nowadays, with a bouncer at the door, a ban on football colours, and the opening of only one room (a small part of this needlessly expansive building) for much of the time, the pub is rather more welcoming, and is brightly lit and spacious. A relatively diverse crowd of locals, students from the nearby University of East London, and on our last visit, a disconcertingly high proportion of people who seemed to use the word 'fuck' casually at least once in every sentence: a place to listen to a real life Dagenham Dialogue (topics: women and football), in preference to anything offered on the naff jukebox selection.
