Five Oak Green is a village near Tonbridge, Kent in the parish of Capel. It was a centre for hop growing and in the 19th century "The Rose and crown" public house was converted to a hospital to treat the many hop pickers who resided in the village and its surroundings in the late summer. The pub was renamed "The Little Hoppers Hospital" by a London priest who added to the pub's sign "No beer sold here" so no one should have any doubt of its changed role.
