The first record I have found of the Robin Hood Pub in Spalding is the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1888. It is indicated there as "Robin Hood Inn".[1] On three maps published 1906-c. 1931, but based on surveying done in 1903, it is indicated simply as "Inn". On subsequent maps this indication is lacking (see Maps section below), but one gets the impression from the regulars quoted in a local newspaper that the Robin Hood was in business throughout. Sadly as of November 2015 the pub's existence was threatened.[2]
