The Robin Hood on 'Durley Street' in the hamlet of 'Durley Street' was in existence by 1855 and as late as 1927 if not later.

The pub figures in Kelly and Co.'s Post Office Directory of Hampshire, Wiltshire, and Dorsetshire (1855) as the 'Robin Hood', with John Browning as publican and locality given as 'Durley, Botley'.[1] It is included as 'Robin Hood & Little John', on a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1871, while two later 6" O.S. maps omit the pub's name, providing only the indication 'Inn'. Pub History lists publican information for the years 1911 and 1927.[2]
