The Robin Hood at 44 Vineyard in Abingdon existed from 1796 or earlier to 1910 or slightly later.

Information on publicans and residents culled from censuses and trade directories dating from 1796 to 1907 can be found at Pub History.[1] Changes to street numbering can make it difficult to determine the exact location of a long defunct pub, but very likely the building in the photo below was in fact the Robin Hood. Early 25" O.S. maps, including that published in 1912, based on a revision carried out in 1910, indicate three public houses on Vineyard. On later maps the 'P.H.' label is gone from one; this must have been the Robin Hood.
