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. It is in the civil parish of Capel.
