The Robin Hood on the corner of Croydon and Elmer's End roads in Anerley is first recorded in 1861. It closed c. 2005. There is now an Aldi at the site.

Pub Wiki lists information on publicans and residents for the years 1861-1922. The address of the pub has been variously given as Oak Grove (1867) and 101 Croydon Road. In 1874 it is referred to as 'the Robin Hood Tavern',[1] in 1896 it is listed as 'Robin Hood hotel'.[2] The pub is included (without name) on the early 25" O.S. maps listed below. Now Greater London, historically the area belonged to Surrey. It was very close to the Kent/Surrey county boundary.
