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. The village oast house, the Moat Farm Oast, has been converted and now houses a number of businesses, including Avenue Building Company (specialists in healthcare construction), Adrian Scripps Ltd (fruit growers and packers), Reddico (a digital marketing agency), and Cavendish Ships Stores (a ship stores supplier).
