Robin Hood  

Situated 400 yards from the railway station, the Robin is easy to get to. From the outside this pub looks quite large, but inside it is a cosy small affair. There are two rooms, but one bar serves both. The main bar is to the right as you enter through the internal porch. Here you will find a real fire - very hot for those sitting opposite - and black and white Georgian style lattice bar with stools against it. Seating is a mixture of padded bench seats and stools at thin-ish oblong tables. The walls are covered with posters and pictures (Robin Hood features a lot obviously) and of course rugby paraphernalia (the club is not far). The bar has a low overhang and the bar back is covered with the pump clips of guest ales, though there was nothing from a micro on at this visit. All beers are served through a tight sparkler, and you will get a funny look if you ask for it to be taken off. The beer was in good condition and they opened up early specially for us as the times in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide were very wrong! A small games room is off from the bar where pool and darts are available. The other room with the small bar is has bench seating again with tables and some chairs. Access to the bar is very small, though you can be easily seen by staff. Food is served here Thursday to Sunday only (check the picture below for times), last orders around 8.45 during the week, an hour earlier on Sunday. All food is home cooked and they even make their own chips. Our advice is to find this pub at the weekend when there is increased likelihood of a good guest ale being on, though check by phone any other time. Access for the disabled is possible to the lounge bar with help, but not to the toilets. No accommodation here.



The Robin Hood now offers 3 Guest Ales instead of two. The Robin Hood has recently changed hands, the new owners are now Mark and Alison Hampson. There is no longer a Dart Board, a Fruit machine now takes its place. The Food menu has been updated and improved to include more great snacks and meals. The Robin Hood continues to be the most friendly Pub in the area and continues to dish up excellent quality food and a fantastic choice of both Cask and Real Ale Beers!
