There was a pub named the Robin Hood in Hobson's Passage, between Hobson's and Sidney streets in Cambridge. It is recorded only in the years 1851-52.

Information from trade directories for those years can be found at Pub History.[1] The 25" O.S. map of Cambridge published in 1927 has 'Hobson Place' instead of 'Hobson's Passage', but the latter was clearly the usual name of this narrow gutter. The 25" map from 1903 shows an unnamed pub about one-third of the way in from Sidney Street. Can this have been the Robin Hood?
