The Robin Hood on Buxton Road (A54) in Buglawton, Congleton, dated from the 18th century[1] It closed at some point between 2018 and November 2020.

The first dated record IRHB has found so far is an 1850 directory which mentions 'Wilbraham Egerton, Esq., the present proprietor [of the manor of Buglawton], who holds a Court Leet and Baron at the Robin Hood Inn'.[2] The publican was then a Sarah Boon and the address given was 'The Green'.[3]

The pub is also included on a 6" O.S. map of the area published 1882, based on surveying done in 1871-73. On this and later maps listed below, the pub is labelled 'Robin Hood Inn'.
