The Robin Hood on 237 Droylsden Road, Newton Heath, Manchester, was in existence by 1861. It closed c. 2010.

The pub is not included in any of the early O.S. maps listed below, but "Robin Hood" is listed with Hannah Woolstenholme as "Victular" in the 1861 census; in the censuses of 1871 and 1881, George Wolstenholme is listed as, respectively, "Beer seller" and "Beerhouse keeper", but the name of the pub is not cited. In the 1891 census we have George Wolstenholme, "Beer Retailer" at "Robin Hood Beerhouse". The house number is not listed in the earliest census. but in the next three it is cited as 237 Droylsden Road.[1]
