For a few years during the 1850s there was a Robin Hood pub somewhere on Blossom Street, Ancoats, Manchester. It disappeared when warehouses were built in the area.[1]

This short-lived pub is not included on any of the O.S. maps listed below. A Thomas Edwards, "Beer Retailer", is listed at 40 Blossom Street in the 1851 census, and in that of 1861 an Alice Edwards, "Beerhousekeeper" at 42 Blossom Street,[2] but no pub name is cited.
